Welcome Capital Normal University Visiting Scholar Roc (Peng) Zhao

Posted on: Sep 5, 2018
 The Centre for Chinese Studies is pleased to welcome Roc (Peng) Zhao, an instructor from CUE’s partner university in Beijing, China — Capital Normal University. Roc is here to conduct academic research as a visiting scholar for one year. His area of research interest is Second Language Acquisition and English phonetics. He plans to study English textbooks used by ESL learners in Canada and compare them with English textbooks used in public schools in China. He also plans to do literature research in order to find popular principles that are used in the compilation of English textbooks for ESL learners in Canada and thereby discover possibilities for improving the quality of English textbooks used in public schools in China.
Roc likes reading and cooking. He looks forward to a fruitful and wonderful time at Concordia University of Edmonton.
