What others say about this course.
A most wonderful and rewarding learning experience. The tutor was patient, supportive and engaging which made the course fun and enjoyable.
I thought my tutor this term was really good and I appreciated the teaching style. The tutor explained the grammar points really well and was patient and encouraging making the lessons fun, engaging and interactive using a variety media and shared other useful online content with us.
Our tutor has been an exceptionally good tutor these past two terms. The combination of linguistics knowledge and Chinese knowledge really brings the teaching alive, and there’s never a question that hasn’t been able to be expertly answered – definitely the best teacher of the year.
