Liu Co-Authors Article on Working Across Languages in Educational Settings

Primary tabs

Jin Liu, associate professor of Chinese in the School of Modern Languages, co-authored an article titled “Translanguaging as a Pedagogical Practice in Chinese Language and (Inter)culture Courses.” The paper, co-authored with Yu Li, assistant professor in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Loyola Marymount University, was published in the journal Chinese as a Second Language.

In the article, Liu uses CHIN 4500: Intercultural Seminar, which she teaches, as a case study to demonstrate that the translanguaging approach, which aims to use different languages to maximize communication in language learning, encourages in-depth intellectual inquiries and critical thinking. The article further argues translanguaging supports Chinese language learning in an interdisciplinary, intercultural, and interactive context.
