ABOUT ME

Linh Phung Headshot.png

I have a BA, MA, and Doctorate in English language teaching. I have experience teaching English in higher education and other settings in the U.S., Vietnam, and China for over 15 years. I've published and presented widely in the areas of English language teaching and international education. I'm also the Founder and CEO of Eduling International, which offers language instruction and services, including courses, conversation exchange programs, printed materials, and an app called Eduling Speak.

 

I'm looking for partners to distribute my newly released app, so please email me if you'd like to partner up. I'm open to talking with venture capitalists about taking the Eduling Speak app to a global scale with millions of users.

A big theme through little things
Hot, cold. Yes, no! Push, pull. Gentle, forceful. This rhyming bilingual picture book is based on simple opposite concepts and utterances from a child in the early years of her life. Vividly illustrated, they also point to the differences in her transracial, adoptive family’s physical features (hair, size, and skin color). The book is perfect for young children learning new words and discovering the differences and similarities in all of us.

Một chủ đề lớn qua những điều bé nhỏ
Kéo cưa, lừa xẻ. Nhẹ nhàng, mạnh mẽ! Truyện tranh song ngữ có vần điệu này dựa trên những từ trái nghĩa và những câu nói trái ngược nhau (như thể là trò kéo cưa ngôn ngữ vậy) của một em bé. Với những minh họa đầy màu sắc, chúng cũng chỉ ra những khác biệt bề ngoài (tóc, hình thức, và màu da) trong gia đình đa chủng tộc của em. Cuốn sách này rất phù hợp cho những em nhỏ đang học nói và học đọc cũng như giúp các em khám phá những điều khác biệt và tương đồng trong tất cả chúng ta.
