MS DU really passionate teacher and loves her job !! really excellent and sophistiated mandarin teacher, tries her best to help us out in our work by explaining to us the meaning of words and phrases, she also takes her time off to help us out when we need it. apart from this, she is also super friendly and would give every student the fair amount of respect we deserves. she is a loving teacher and also one who spends most of the class time teaching and educating us to be better at mandarin :)
Yes, learning Chinese is about copying the characters but it is also about learning the meaning/how to use the characters, which she does not do. If you are a self-studier, great, but those that need extra clarification will have a hard time.
easiest teacher ever...so gullible too-__- doesn't even care about you if she knows you can do the stuff. i got 93 on finals when i hardly show up=-= her stuff r way too wasy but she can't teach-__-
ms.du has a bad reputation...but i mean if u show effort and not pick on her, then u'll be all good =)
I agree. without working hard, you cannot learn the language.
She give tests out when she havent even hand our worksheet back!! On test day, she just hand u bak the w/s ..let u review for 5mins--TEST TIME. OMG
Copying line after line of characters not my idea of learning, but I AVERAGED 99% in her classes. Hope they changed textbooks. (shudders)
Nice person, but can't teach the material. :( She just gives us stuff to copy and quiz next day. No review, no practise. Just repetitive copying and testing
She's the easiest teacher I've ever had. I've never had under a 90 percent before.
