About Me

My name is Jing Paul. I'm an Associate Professor of Chinese in the Asian Studies Program at Agnes Scott College and the founding director of the Agnes Scott College Critical Language Immersion Program.

 

I enjoy researching, teaching, and learning languages. My research primarily investigates the typological characteristics of different languages in their expression of motion events. I also study the integration of technology into language instruction. An additional interest is sound symbolism in language evolution. I am always exploring culturally enriching fun ways of teaching Chinese–my students and I write characters with ribbons; we drum to reflect the rhythm of two-syllable words; we voice social justice in creative stories...

When I am not working, I am discovering other fun things in life–Chinese dance? bodybuilding? drawing? hanging out with my family? Yes, all and more...
