All of the content on East Asia Student is written by Hugh Grigg (Chinese name: 葛修遠). I’m currently studying full-time for a degree in East Asian Studies at the University of Cambridge, and have been in China for 1.967455 years. I run this site to keep track of my own progress and to try and help other people out where I can.
English is my first language and at the moment my main focus is learning Mandarin Chinese. I also take weekly classes in Literary Chinese and Literary Tibetan, and plan to begin seriously studying Japanese in the near future. Korean is also on the (distant) horizon. Previously I have taken courses in East Asian history, modern Chinese history and Linguistics.
About the East Asia Student logo
It’s composed of 東 (dōng) and 囗 (wéi), and would probably be pronounced dōng if it were actually a character. The central component means “east” and the outer component is an enclosure. It’s supposed to express the theme of the site as well as make a recognisable, compact logo.
