Chinese Literature, B.A. Fudan University, Shanghai

Hi all! I’m Jenny Long. I come from Chengdu, a city in the southwest part of China (it is also panda's hometown. Yes, I visited pandas many times). I got my bachelors degree at Fudan University in Shanghai. After graduation, I taught Chinese in a  junior school in Singapore. I spent four years there, and I found I am very interested in teaching. It is my first year in the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) program at UPenn. This is the first time I’m studying abroad. Though it was a little overwhelming at the beginning of this semester, I have quickly adapted to my new life. I’m enjoying my stay here. I like playing badminton and table tennis. Also, I like traveling. I always spend my holidays traveling. I have visited 17 countries and more than 50 cities.
