About Alan Duan

Alan Duan currently is China’s state-invited foreign expert in Science and Education. He has been teaching Broadcast Announcing & Anchoring in English, English Pronunciation and English Speaking Skills since 2001 for Communication University of China (CUC) and Zhejiang University of Media & Communications (ZUMC).

 

He has over twenty years experience as educationalist, English & Chinese newsreader, broadcaster, voiceover and narration artist, published textbook and dictionary writer and author. His teaching is centred on Broadcast Journalism, English newsreading, newsreporting and programme hosting skills, English pronunciation, English speaking skills for undergraduate students.

 

For English pronunciation teaching and textbook writing, his own descriptive standpoint, as is seen and presented in all his classes and books, lies within the University College London 'phonetic' tradition of A C Gimson and J D O'Connor, two of the last century's  most distinguished English phoneticians in the world. He is fortunate to have been their pupil. He has a great power of mimicry. When he was still a student of English, his performance of English pronunciation was highly prasied and commented (1982) by Professor A C Gimson. He is now Head of ZUMC's English Pronunciation Teaching Group and its English Announcing & Anchoring Major Teaching Group.

 

In recent years, Alan Duan has staretd to realise the importance of teaching international English in terms of vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. He spends time on thinking of what kind of English accent he should teach to his students of English and Chinese Announcing and Anchoring major for China's radio and TV industry. He thinks that to read and present English news for radio and TV with a neutral accent that is neither recognisably British nor American would be more ideal and acceptable for international audience. 013R

 

His academic study and research interests include news delivery techniques, western and eastern audience listening/viewing habits, voiceover and narration skills, accents, phonetics, spoken vocabulary and speaking skills.

 

In writing English textbooks and dictionaries, "Alan Duan has paid attention to conversational style, to different levels of informality, and to impolite as well as polite colloquial vocabulary --- something which cannot always be said about books which claim to be introductions to 'real' English". Professor David Crystal  (1992). He has published books and dictionaries on spoken English: A Dictionary of Conversational English (FLTRP 1992), English Pronunciation & Intonation Practice for IELTS Candidates (WAP 2003), Learners’ Dictionary of Spoken English (WAP 2005). His forthcoming books are A Dictionary of Conversational Chinese, Chinese Speaking Skills and Chinese Pronunciation Course.
