Li Zhang

Head of Mandarin

Born in Nanjing, China and a graduate of Nanjing University, I came to Edinburgh in 2005 and completed my Master’s degree in Education at Edinburgh University, followed by a PGDE course in Mandarin.

After teaching for three years at St George’s School for Girls, I joined Fettes in September 2011 as a Teacher of Mandarin, and became Head of Department in 2016. In addition to teaching Mandarin, I also enjoy being a visiting tutor in Arniston.

Beyond the classroom, I love travelling and reading as well as cooking authentic Chinese food. I am delighted that I have the opportunity to share my cooking skills in the Chinese Club with interested Fettesians.
