Jianliang Robert Zhang Furman University

My name is Jianliang Zhang(张建良, You may call me Robert. I come from Suzhou, China, a city adjacent to Shanghai Municipality . This famous historical city which has over 2,500 years of rich history is also called "Venice of the East". If you come to Suzhou one day, I would like to show you around this ancient city.

I am a teacher in Soochow University, and I love being with students, making good friends with them, which is the secret for being young forever. I have a wide range of interests, among which swimming is my favorite. I also love singing

songs from different countries, such as Chinese pop songs(烟花易冷,月亮代表我的心)English songs My Heart Will Go On, Sailing). In addition, I can play Tai Chi Chuan, which is a basic skill in Chinese martial arts. You will find that I am an optimistic, diligent, and easy-going man if you associate with me for some time.

Now, I am really happy to be the Chinese Language House Assistant this semester in Furman. Our Chinese Language House has prepared quite a lot of different activities for you to explore Chinese culture, and it will be our honor to help you improve your Chinese. Do not hesitate to contact us at Jianliang.Zhang@furman.edu if you need any help.
