Dr Yan Yang has more than ten years of experience in teaching and researching second/foreign languages. Yan has a profound understanding of second language acquisition and its application to classroom pedagogy. For the past ten years, she has been working as a lecturer at Xi’an International Studies University in China, and a research assistant and doctoral candidate at The University of Auckland. 

Her Ph.D. research conducted at The University of Auckland focused on ‘Effects of the Second Language on the First Language’, which has enhanced her understanding of the intricacies of language learning, especially written language acquisition and its related pedagogies.
