In her many years in higher education, Professor Li has always focused primarily on students’ intellectual development, personal growth and their well-being.

In all her dealings with students she has placed special emphasis on improving their language proficiency. Her efforts in language education are reflected in the CLEAC’s national top prize winning textbook on Chinese communication, and her language testing expertise has won her many testing-related research grants, both national and local. She has received many awards for her devotion to students, including Lingnan’s Teaching Excellence Award and the Dr and Mrs James Tak Wu Outstanding Service Award.
