  • Well structured & presented. Not just classroom type lessons but also covered colloquial language usable in social environments.

  • 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.
