What others say.

  • I have been consistently pleased with the quality of instructors in the University of Sydney’s CCE language classes. I have had two German-language instructors and two Korean-language instructors now. All have been extremely proficient, friendly and engaged. This class was no exception! The tutor actively sought out and responded to feedback during the term and provided helpful and timely feedback. Most impressively, fostering a very friendly and encouraging environment for all participants. Thank you for providing a quality opportunity for personal development.

  • The tutor was very good at assessing how quickly each of us were progressing and encouraged participation without being overwhelming.

  • Love the course and the tutor. Enjoying the study. Hope to continue until the final level.

  • The tutor continues to make learning Korean one of the most enjoyable and rewarding courses I’ve ever done.

  • Yet again, I’m very satisfied with the tutor’s performance. I’m looking forward to Korean 103.
