English-in-Action Participant Spotlights

    Min Chen and Shaobo Wang

    Min Chen and Shaobo Wang are a married couple who have been participating in the EIA program since Fall 2018. Shaobo is a PhD student in Biochemistry at UCSD. Min worked as a Genetic Technologist at a hospital in China before coming to San Diego. She said that as a foreigner, she was impressed by the tremendous respect that people in the US had for each other regardless of race, nationality, and occupation.


    Min and Shaobo joined the EIA program because they were both looking to connect with and learn from different people. They enjoy the fact that Savannah, their conversation leader, can help them translate their ideas from Chinese to English so that they can understand the American culture better and improve their communication skills day by day.
