    In October 2015, Fu Tao joined the Confucius Institute for Scotland’s Schools as a Mandarin teacher and is delighted to have been given this opportunity to work in Scotland.

    After graduating from Tianjin University of Science and Technology in China with a degree in Teaching Chinese as a second language, she went on to study further and completed a Masters in Foreign Linguistics and Applied Linguistics. During her time at university she also had the opportunity to work as a Mandarin teacher for overseas students. She also took on the administrative task of helping the graduates to find jobs and store their information.

    Fu Tao enjoys taking classes. She has taught students from Indonesia, Korea, USA, Finland, Japan, and Mongolia. She participated in the 2015 Summer School in Tianjin and taught Mandarin to students from Scotland.

    This is her second time in Europe. She joined a Summer school in Poland as a student and during her time there travelled around several nearby countries. She likes to experience different styles of life and is willing to try different things. In addition, she speaks basic German and Japanese. Fu Tao is looking forward to the challenges of this role as Mandarin teacher with CISS.
