7. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I felt that reading together was really valuable. It really helped me feel more confident in my reading and I could make sure I was pronouncing the words correctly. I also liked the fact that Wendan knew when to push her students to answer and when we needed help instead of putting us on the spot and making us give an answer that we were unsure about.
Professor Li always shared additional information with us about the Chinese language and culture that cannot be found in the textbook. This greatly deepened my interest and understanding of the material that we were learning.
We learned a lot of new information about the culture.
I thought that the discussions and lectures were the most valuable because it allowed us to discuss what we know or have difficulty with and then share it with the whole class.
Her enthusiasm of teaching the class
We reviewed over common errors made on the homework and exams. In addition, we were taught other cultural aspects in addition to those in the reading materials.
Her energy and enthusiasm
makes the class a fun and enthusiastic environment to learn, care about student's learning, very detailed and covered every aspect of the course
Very enthusiastic teacher, most willing to help us learn.
Learning about Chinese culture and improving my Chinese was the most valuable. I really enjoyed going to Chinese Corner every week!
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
It was hard for me to keep up with the recording assignments. It was a bit too time consuming and I felt like it didn't help me too much.
There was a lot of homework assigned for this course. I believe some contributed to my learning while a few others didn't.
We did not speak enough Chinese in class.
Nothing was least valuable.
what the homework assignment was can sometimes be confusing.
Nothing much other than having to hand write all assignments.
lack of clarity on assignments
tell us assignments and homework, tests, quizzes, due dates at least a week before
Lack of concrete schedule of assignments.
None. I really valued the class.

18. Other comments:
I really liked the enthusiasm and clear affection that Professor Li showed to all the students. We could clearly see that she is passionate about teaching and she made all the students comfortable in class no matter what level of Chinese they were at.
Having Professor Li as my instructor for this course largely influenced my experience this semester. I don't think I would have enjoyed this course as much as I did this semester with any other instructor.
I have learned a lot of new things and improved a lot.
Very motivating and inspiring teacher
Wendan Li is the bestest chinese teacher ive ever have
Excellent teacher, really tries to improve herself.
