13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She is very consistent with her teaching and is willing to look at each and every one of her students work
She is very flexible and enjoys her students. She always has a good temper and is always happy to be there teaching us. She gives fair amount of work and gives the student chances to improve themselves.
She is knowledgable and willing to help explain things clearly. She knows the textbook, and if there is something she doesn't know, she knows how to find the answer.
She knows the language very well
She teaches effectively and always does her best to help out her students.
She is very passionate about the students learning. She knows that when learning a language everyone learns at a different pace and she acknowledges that by making sure every student gets the right amount of help from her and that she moves at a pace that everyone can follow.
Professor fujitani major strength was the way she taught Chinese and was always well prepared and prompt to class. She is a great Chinese 202 teacher.
Chinese
She is by far the best teacher I have had in awhile. She is encouraging and believes in me that I am able to pass if I try my best.
Fujitani laoshi is one of the best teachers I had from KCC. She is so patient and caring about you it makes you want to come to class. She doesn't let you give up even though it may be hard at times. Overall, she is the best teacher to learn from if you want to learn Chinese as a second language.
Very Understanding
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
For test parts that require listening, the recording should be prerecorded
For 202, it would be best to have more video or visual aids. 101 and 102 had the videos, but 201 and 202 lacked them. To engage the students in Chinese dramas would be a very fast and entertaining way to teach them Chinese.
Maybe teach/use more pinyin to help with pronunciation (probably better for 100 level courses...)
N/A
I actually really liked that the class was on 2 days instead of 4, it moved the class along a lot faster and a lot of learning was self study, but it definitely helped. I think having the class 4 days a week was a little too much. If the class could be 2 days instead of 4 from now on I think that would be great.
More extra credit and maybe field trip!
I don't have nothing to say. i think she is an awesome teacher for chinese.
None. I thought she had a very good outline for class.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She is very understanding that Chinese gets more difficult with its vocabulary and goes easy on the students on exams and presentations
She always asks me whether I was okay or why I missed class on days I was absent. She always remember who comes and remembers to give them chances to make up assignments.
She asks if we understand th subject at hand, and makes sure that we do before moving on.
She would give us chances whenever we messed up
She will talk with you if certain things don't add up. Often give you loads of chances to make up things.
She would ask if we have questions and if we were missing assignments she would tell us how we can improve our grades.
She always informed us about studying aboard in china or anything that can better our education with Chinese
she encourages students really a lot.
She always asked if there was anything wrong outside of school. She demonstrated concern that there is more to life for students then just school.
She offered after class help and other days as well.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes. Her personality makes learning Chinese fun
Yes, definitely. She was the best Chinese teacher I ever had. She knows what's it like for Americans to learn the hardest language in the world. She tries to teach in our level compared to most teachers who think we should naturally get it. It's not that simple, Chinese is a language that needs attention and patience.
Yes. Great teacher, great course, hands down.
Yes. She is very structured and knowledgeable
Yes, she is a great and kind teacher who knows her material well.
Yes, she is a wonderful teacher who loves Chinese culture and language and she definitely has a passion for teaching students.
YES!
yes. because her teaching is clear.
Without a doubt.
Yes, overall a great teacher.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Wonderful teacher and woman. She is generous and is always ready to start the day positively.
Thank you Laoshi! ����
N/A
Have a great summer laoshi!
Thank you so much Lao shi! I learn a lot in your Chinese 202 class
she is one of my favorite teacher. i will miss her and her class a lot.
I'm proud to call her my teacher. Someone who is so kind and sweet. She doesn't make you feel dumb at all.
Learning Chinese was not as scary and stressful as I thought it would be. Glad to be a student for the all semesters of Chinese.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Getting students to participate as you learn more when you are active.
she teaches really well and makes students fell want to learn more. Also she is really kind teacher too.
She is very friendly and knows chinese very well
She is honestly the best teacher I have ever had. She is so kind and has a lot of patience. I highly recomend her classes to anyone.
Knows subject area well, able to give decent homework and grade fairly. Making announcements clearly and in advance.
She is very caring and understanding and her teaching method is very effective.
Focus on ALL students, gives the students resources (ie. laulima resources, tutors, office hours)
she really knows what to teach to the students and she helps us a lot when we do our work.
She is very opened and gives extra time and helps students who are in need. Her course is not too structured and she is very flexible with the students. In relations to a Lao Tzu philosophy, I would say she exhibits a tendency to move like water. She flows with how students wants to learn it rather than exhort force and pressure on students. If anything, her strong points lay among her ability to adapt, listen, and befriend her students.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
There is none. Shes the best.
More time for q&a. When introducing a new character or word not in the textbook, also write pinyin (my humble opinion).
none
maybe a little less work.
It would be nice to have more visual aid like Chinese television or dramas shown in the class.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She is patient with students that are having a difficult time understanding the language.
she helps students a lot. she always asks students understand or not after every each topic.
She always offers help before or after class.
Talks story with students before class, tries to learn about student activities, and makes sure they are learning in class.
utilize resources such as Laulima and Chinese tutors
she would let us retake parts of the test if we did bad on it.
She often asks us whether we are okay even in times when we miss one class. She is always interested in her students' life but does not pry.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes because active participation is very helpful in learning the language.
yes because she is really helpful teacher.
Yes. Because she is a good teacher
Yes, I would definitely recomment her to ANYONE.
Yes. She is very helpful and caring and knows her subject matter well.

By doing this, I thought i was a great way to understand the language by creating a presentaion. I really had fun in this class, and I really learned a lot. Thank you Laoshi!

That fact that she has a warm and caring heart was evident from day one. I know I am not alone in my love for this wonderful and supportive teacher.
Huang Laoshi always takes time to sit down with the students one on one if needed, and makes herself available to answer any questions. She listens to the feedback students give her and is very flexible.
She stays after class to help students, and works with students to understand the content.
If she noticed that we are having hard time she explain the lesson in simpler manner, or she gives us more time to understand our class. And also most of the time she offers one to one assistant or help to every students that needs her help.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Mrs. Fujitani is very understanding, caring, and fair. Being a student who is just started to study after being away from school for a long time was a bit hard in the beginning but by the Grace of God Mrs. Fujitani encouraged me and led me in the right direction.
She makes learning mandarin fun and easy in a comfortable setting.
Her major strengths as a teacher would be that she knew what she was teaching and taught it well.
She tries to encourage to speak Chinese in class and gives chances of it. Also, she tries to make a good atmosphere to take class for students.
Professor Fujitani's major strength is her concern with her student. She provided sounds file on laulima for student to learn the sound of the words and help us in class.
She is a great teacher, she really cares about her students.
A very nice and thoughtful teacher who cares about her students.
She is open to constructive criticism and is willing to change to improve how the students learn. Her way of teaching Chinese is clear and easy to learn from without sacrificing on substance.
Awesome overall job.
She is a very kind and caring women. She is very patient with her students and is always helping. She knows her material very well and encourages everyone to do their best.
She encourages the students to participate in the class.
She knows the topic very well and is able to explain it clearly and effectively. She also is able to work with the students very well, and make class fun.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
If it is possible to ask the faculty of UH to extend the length of Chinese Classes because 1 hour is too fast to learn a language. add more oral exercises to practice conversation even more than we do now.
Helping students who have trouble with speaking practice.
NO MORE
None.
She could possibly intrigue students more in learning Chinese with culturally relevant things like for example the richness in 4 word sayings which is common for Chinese people. Although that one may not be readily interpreted with the limited vocabulary of an intro class.
maybe speak only mandarin and no english to force students to speak mandarin in class.
slow the lessons down because a lot of us didn't understand it the first time. by the time we understand it, we're already on a new lesson.
I wouldn't make any changes.
The pace of the class is little fast.
none
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She always asked us if we understood the dialog of each lesson after she finished reading them, and assigned even tutors to help us study and even offer he office hour for either any questions or concerns with the lessons
She would always make sure her student's are absent know what is going on in class.
She asked me if I needed any tutoring when she seeing my grades slip.
She tries to make students participate in class through talking to and making them speak Chinese in class.
She go over the material with the student who needed help, and help them out when needed. When student can't pronounce a certain word, Professor Fujitani comes and help the student pronounce the word.
She's open to ideas from students on what they need to learn Chinese successfully.
she's very patient and understanding
She would always ask how was our weekend or if we were tired or seemed stressed out she would always ask what is wrong.And if we did horrible on the quiz or test she would always ask why, or send one of her helpers to help us and tutor us.
She's available after/before class. she walks around the class and checks on students comprehension, pauses before continuing to another lesson and asks if students have any questions.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Certainly one of my most favorite teacher i have ever had in my educational life, and a very involve, caring individual she helps us strive for the best and try to give it our all.
Yes because she is a fun and great teacher.
Yes, because she is funny and her class is fun.
Yes, because her class is very organized and along with schedule. And I feel her class is helpful to improve my Chinese skill.
I would recommend Professor Fujitani to others, because she help you learn the material. She show us video of how to communicate with others, and very often we do class activity to learn the process of the course.
yes, she is always checking to see if everyone understands, if you dont understand she will stay with you to help.
Yes I would recommend her because she teaches Chinese well and gets through to students.
yes, because her teaching skills are superb.
She is very patient and understanding. She will help you with whatever you need help with and makes the class enjoyable.
yes. she made class fun and was overall a very good teacher.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I would like to say that the vast information and attention she gives us is just awesome, almost makes us feel like a family learning together.
One of the best language instructors I've had.
Nothing else to say
Thank you for teaching us Chinese. I felt our class's atmosphere is not so good at first, but thanks to your efforts and your atmosphere, I feel good to take your class.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Effective teaching, presenting different (real life) situations.
her cheerful patience, on top of her vast knowledge of the course material
Huang Laoshi is really good at teaching the text. She makes sure we understand the concepts before moving on. In one semester she taught me more than I thought I was capable of. I'm so thankful for her patience and care for me during this hectic semester.
She throughly teaches the lessom until we understand the lesson we are learning that week.
She knows the material very well.
She is very smart. She is open to ideas and takes everything into consideration. She returns work very quickly and goes over mistakes so the students clearly understand. She knows everything she is teaching.
Very knowledgeable on the subject area.
She brought us together as a class. For most all of us, learning Chinese was the most academic challenging semester of our lives and Fujitani Laoshi helped us achieve our goals with flying colors. No one was left behind. She created a fun atmosphere for learning, and was able to keep our attention with a subject as difficult as Chinese.
She's very suitable to be a Chinese teacher because she demonstrated patience, kindness, and a great deal of understanding to non-native Chinese speaker with no experience in the language at all. She has a strong familiarity with the subject, which made it easier to learn from her.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none
n/a
none
I do not have any changes. :)
None at all
non
Only if she had a Freeman class again, I would suggest to warm up to the subject a little more, rather than plunging the first day. Maybe to do a few more ice breakers in the beginning.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Cared a lot how students performed in the classroom and outside.
by making definite sure that every student understood the content before continuing any segment
she gave each student one on one time during the class to make sure we understood the concepts.
She answered any questions we had that she knew the answer to.
Helping students a long with everything!!! :)
She gave the class a lot of help. Made everyone participate and no one fell behind. Made learning Chinese fun.
yes, with any problems at all she would help the student to the best of her ability.
I've never had a professor return EVERY SINGLE quiz the next day in class. She knew that we were ALL anxious to know our grades and she provided them for us promptly. Also, because it is so important that the ten of us get along and work as a cohesive group she went out of her way to ELIMINATE any problems that arose between us.
She always readily available whenever one of us needed her help. When it comes to test, she made sure that we understood the lesson. Even outside of class, we were always able to contact her via email for questions related to the lesson that we learned.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, I would recommend her to other students because her teaching is very effective.
certainly. she offers everything and more that one would need to learn chinese
totally! love how she is so passionate about teaching Chinese. She makes learning such a difficult language fun and exciting!
Yes because I learned a lot in the short 4 months.
Yes I highly recommend her as her lessons are easy to follow and interactive.
Yes, because she is really smart. She tries hard to really get through to the students. She teaches because she loves it. Teaches in a way for everyone to understand.
Absolutely! I wish she taught every language because her teaching style is so effective.
I would definitely recommend her to other students. She's well-rounded, knowledgeable, patient, and very funny. She knows how to keep the interests of her students.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is an excellent teacher, knows much about the subject and her class was very enjoyable.
i am very pleased to have been able to learn form her, knowing that her teaching is of the top notch. I feel that learning from her enabled me to absorb the language at a rapid, but comfortable pace
Since I'm in Chinese 297, we have taken CH101-201 and she has done such a great job teaching me Chinese. I was really questioning myself of my capabilities before this class but now that this class is almost over, she has taught me that I'm capable of what ever I set my mind to.
She is very kind and when I come to class it makes me happy to always see her smiling. She makes me want to class because it shows that she really enjoys teaching.
å¾?好ï¼?æ??å??欢你ç??课ã??
She was great to all of us. I've never seen a teacher earn such respect while still having so much fun with her students.
Thank you very much for all the time and effort you've spent with us. I feel very lucky to have become one of your students. I will forever be grateful. Xiexie nin `Bai En Li
