13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She explain things clearly and easy for us to understand.
She is a caring and considerate teacher. She will accept late homework which I really appreciate, and she is understanding of extenuating circumstances that might hinder some students progress.
She always tries us to practice and guess the answers by ourselves. I think it is really good for us. And she always smiles!!
She knew that Korean is a very complicated and different language, therefore, she would provide examples (in English and Japanese) of how certain grammer parts were similar to our own understood language. Also, she could tell when things were hard to understand and would encourage us by saying "That's why we start practicing now; it is not easy to understand."
Soo Ah Yuen's major strengths as a teacher was that she wasn't hesitant to get to know her students. If they needed help, she reassured them that they could ask her for help.
Really makes a student wanna learn korean.
When students ask some questions to her, she take much her time and help us.
Being that she had to learn English she understands how hard it is to learn a second language and in return knows how to teach language very efficiently. She is very understanding and caring for her students. She makes the class fun and makes for a great learning atmosphere.
Pushing us to strive for the best.
She's been trying to teach us many things about Korea such as history, language, and custom.
She is funny and very knowledgeable. She doesn't try to dumb down the subject so everyone can understand.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Nothing
Nothing. But perhaps if she could direct us to sites where we could have penpals from Korea.. That would be neat.
Perhaps not so many quizzes and more practicing speaking in class.
I have no changes to suggest to Soo Ah Yuen.
Not much
No, I do not have.
No changes.
She was so fast to move forward in class so it was hard to follow her.
none
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she encourages us to get our missing work turned in.
One of the students in our classroom had family obligations, and Mrs. Yuen was very caring and inquiring of her. And she asked if I was ok after I was in a fender bender.
She would always ask if we had any questions in a nice way and when things were hard for us, she would stop and say things like "It is hard, huh? A little complicated."
Soo Ah Yuen showed concern for student by suggesting that if they needed help in a subject, all they had to do was ask her.
Talking really loudly
She always teach clealy as much as she can.
She told us when she was available for meeting. she allowed us to turn in homework a little late so that we wouldn't lose points and so we practiced more. She is very patient with us and Understanding.
By asking questions.
There were many japanese students so she would explain things in japanese and english so everyone could understand.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes because she explain things in a clear and easy way.
I would recommend my teacher to other students because she is kind and good at teaching Korean. I like that we learn to read Korean right away, and that we watch short clips containing Korean speaking and/or culture.
Yes I would because, although she demands very much, the things that were taught to us were very useful. Either an A or B student would be able to survive in Korea after finishing this class.
I would recommend Soo Ah Yuen to students because, not only is she a family friend, she is very caring and friendly to students new to the Korean language, eager to show the Korean culture to them.
Yeah, shes intense. So, its not so bad.
Yes I do, because she is really great teacher, and her class is really helpful.
Yes, because she is a great teacher. she is funny and easy to Learn from. she provides a great atmosphere for her students and teaches in a way so that we understand the material fully. She really wants to see us speaking Korean and emphasizes on speaking which I think is great and how language should be taught.
Yes, because everyone can learn from her and so much more.
If she gets slower to teach I would recommend.
Yes of course
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?

A very nice woman, represents Koreans very well. Also, she is a very patient woman.

When a question or concern was asked about Korean, She explained with a clear and accurate answer.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Since she speaks Japanese well, she improves understanding of Japanese students and it is very helpful:)
knowledge of language and linguistics. being able to break down information and explain.
Teacher is great at teaching. Made us understand the lessons currently on and gives us time to soak it all in before moving on. In other words, He does move on until we all get it. She even ask if we have any other questions so we can understand it more. Having tutors in class was an awesome idea. They were very helpful and tells us if we spelt something wrong or if our grammar is off.
One of her strengths as a teacher is that she encourages us to participate in class activities and she also puts us in groups when we do classwork. She also brought in tutors from the upper Korean class to help us out and I must say that they are also helpful. Another strength of hers is assigning homework everyday but its not so bad.
She is funny, so I had interesting time during class.
Sense of humor and passion for students to know korean culture
everything was organized.
I like her smile. Also her Japanese skills are high.
She is a kind woman and really tries to encourage all her students to participate in class.
Teaching a diverse ethnic background of students regardless if they couldn't speak English as a primary language. Helping students and correcting students when pronouncing and spelling Korean wrong.
She uses personal experiences as examples.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
quizzes are often canceled even if she mentions that we have a quiz certain day. It is confusing!
Nothing. The class is awesome as is.
None
nothing
n/a
none
The course did not follow the syllabus schedule we were given at the beginning of the semester. For the first half of the semester, we were going at a slow learning pace. We then were pushed to speed up our pace, and it was too fast. We missed out on learning a lot of vocabulary and grammar. I highly recommend that the course follows the syllabus schedule. Exams were scheduled as the semester went along, and they usually were set right before the weekend (Thursday) to happen right after the weekend (Monday). These unexpected exam announcements caused much stress to me, since I might have already had a busy weekend scheduled and now would have an exam to study for. With a set schedule that the course followed, students could know exactly when the exams were coming up, and adjust their schedules and time manage for it. Pop quizzes were also given at unexpected times, so it was necessary to study everything we learned from the previous lecture. However, we were sometimes told to study too much for our quiz the following day, which caused the students some stress.
N/A
nothing.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She always makes sure that we understand or not, she teaches only in front of the class but also goes around the class and checks one by one whats going on.
asking questions.
Ask us questions and gives us the time to ask questions back if we don't get it. She is also available during non-class time and provides us the time to see her if we needed extra help. She is also really good at replying emails. That's the kind of teacher I like when they respond right away.
Besides giving homework everyday, she also gives class quizzes and tests to see if we know the material well. She also gives oral exams to show her that we are capable of conversing in Korean. She also encourages us to make class fun and exciting, which is why class is always filled with laughter and optimism.
She treats everybody fairly.
very good.
When a question was asked by the student, Prof.Yuen answered the question efficiently and promptly with knowledge. Correcting students on pronunciation and spelling if the student was wrong.
Ask students if they had any questions. If a student had a question she wouldn't rush to explain. So she took her time explaining till the student understood thoroughly.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes. She is a nice professor. Class is fun!
Yes. Knows area very well and knows how to teach.
Yes!! Her class was easy and hard at the same time. Challenging but was fun. I'd recommend this class to anyone who wants to take korean class.
I would recommend her because her class stands out because when we finish homework, we have to put stamps on a sheet of paper and having a minimum of 70 stamps is part of our grade. She also brought in tutors from her upper Korean to make class less difficult. Taking notes is highly suggested because she gives examples duting lecture. Since her class activities involves the entire class, everyone will eventually get to know each other to make class less awkward. Finally, students will learn a lot about the Korean language.
Yes really recommend. Her tmethod of teaching is easy to understand. She also knowes how to speak English, so I recommend to Japanese students as well.
Yes the class was very fun and lively the textbook and workbook were perfect supplements she encouraged students to interact with each other to reinforce grammar
yes. she is very nice to teacher.
Yes, because she teaches the class with knowledgeable information pertaining to not only the Korean culture, but also the language as well.
Yes, She's funny and very laid back giving a very comfortable atmosphere to learn.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I wish I could continue to take KOR class up to 102! I will learn Korean by myself!
Kamsahamnida Sonsaengnim... I really enjoyed taking your class and Hopefully you'll be teaching 102 next semester so I can have you as my teacher again. Your class was really fun to take. I really like our field trip to korean restaurant. It was amazing. Korean food is really good.
This the first time I took a college level language class and I must say that I have had my ups and downs. I did show signs of struggle and little frustration but it doesn't mean that I'm not trying my best. I'm planning to take KOR 102 but not at KCC. Instead, I'm taking it at HCC and the skills I learned in this class will definitely help in KOR 102. This class is really interesting and different from my 4 other classes. Thank you very much!!
I love her joies, and funny thing.
she was a very enjoyable teacher and her sense of humor is fun

Awesome Professor.

none
More classroom interaction. word and grammer exercises done within the classroom with fellow classmates would help. More explanation and help to understand certain grammar points rather than just a lecture describing the material and then assigning homework.
Take a more elementary approach, maybe better pictures, diagrams etc. because it is hard to understand when you rush into it. Also be more organized, many time it sounded like she didn't know what she was trying to teach us.
none
her explanations could be better
None.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
really really well
She starts off every class by asking about what we're doing and what we're up too.
always checked on us
She would talk to us if our grades started to fall behind and encourage us to pull through.
by letting do extra credit to help our grades
She takes the time to meet after class if there were any help. She is very fair in her assignments.
She paired students who were more knowledgeable in the language with those who were not. This helped to make sure all students would interact and gain a better understanding.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes
Yes, very knowledgeable and knows the language fluently.
Only if you are really quick to learn. And i mean really quick.
yes she teaches fundamentals well
Yes, she is an excellent teacher. There is a lot to learn from this class.
yes she is a nice teacher with a lot of knowledge
Yes I would.
Yes, she is willing to work with students if they seek her help.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Thank you for teaching!
Would take another course by her.
nice lady
I really liked my 2 years of having her as my Korean teacher because even though I was a procrastinator in her class, she still showed me to try my best.
She was very supportive of my decision to convert her course into an honors course, and it gave me a great opportunity to conduct research and learn a much more about my culture.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
she obviously knows korean very well. she goes at a slow pace, spends a whole class to learn one concept.
Knowledge of the Subject
Experience. Lessons about the culture (e.g. Chuseok) were interesting and helped to increase interest in the subject matter. She has a great sense of humor.
Very knowledgeable.
VERY TECHNICALL AND KNOWLEGDEABLE. ENCOURAGED GOOD AND POSITIVE BEHAVIOR AND INTEREST IN LEARNING NEW THINGS. STAYED RELEVENT THROUGHOUT COURSE...IE NEWS..
She gave us a lot of examples, and shared a lot about Korean culture. She made interaction activities for us to practice with each other, that was good.
she knows the language. she uses powerpoint.
I thought she understood the subject matter well.
Knowledgeable of the subject.
she knew the subject matter
wide and experienced knowledge in her class
She knows the information very well.
Knows the subject well because she is from Korea.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
the slow pace is boring and that much review isn't needed for one concept. try to listen to students questions better.
less pop quiz
Set a better pace. If we go too fast, we're not as likely to remember the material.
UMMMMMMM GO THROUGH THE FIRST CHAPTERS OF WORKBOOK TO HAVE NEW STUDENTS UNDERSTAND THE CONSONANT AND VOWEL PLACEMENT AND ALSO PRONOUNCATION...ITLL ENHANCE READING AND WRITING BASICS.
Clearer Syllabus. We got two syllabus but both weren't really followed and that made it difficult to keep up. Also she goes through things too quickly and unorganized, making it difficult to understand what she is talking about.
be more organized, go at the pace of the class, be a little more organized, and i feel that sometimes shes a little biased when it comes to ORAL EXAMS. she probably isn't biased but the reason for points being deducted has to be more clear to students so they don't feel this way.
I was hoping that she would've explained certain areas better. The homework was very sporadic and unpredictable. Maybe more of a consistent approach to assigning homework.
speak more clearly, write better examples, and make the font on the power points better so everyone can see
get a bit more organized
The way she explains some of the criteria could be bettered. At times i had a hard time understanding the information she was explaining. I can understand that a 101 level foreign level class is a beginners level. But the class seemed very accelerated.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
asked for questions a lot.
N/A
She had native Korean speakers come to every class to help us. I was impressed with that. She also had plans to have them hang out in the cafeteria to help us outside of class. I was very impressed with that.
She gave us many opportunities to earn points, and was not against changing the plan to accommodate us if we weren't ready to take a quiz.
CHECK UP ON STUDENTS FEEL OF THE CLASS.
She encouraged us to see her in her office, and ask question. Also set up for us to have tutors if we needed help.
she told the students if we were too far behind, to come and speak with her personally.
She was good at asking her students about how they're faring on a daily basis. Showed genuine interest in the lives of her students.
Offers many alternatives to help.
she allows make up exams except the final. very good.
she gave chances for extra credit to students. She gave some leeway to students that have a harder time in class but does not compromise teaching them.
She encouraged us to think for ourselves whenever we made a mistake.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
no, she's unclear a lot.. her tests are hard.. it's hard to be prepared for pop quizzes because she never tells you what will be on it.. homework is almost half your grade.
Yes, very fun and interesting class
Yes, she is a caring instructor who wants her students to succeed.
YESSSSSSSSSSS THE QUIZZES AREN'T MY FAVORITE PART BUT THEY MAKE US KEEP UP WITH THE COURSE,
Only for students who are not taking a lot of other hard courses and also working. Taking her class with other rigorous classes will just stress you out because you need to take extra time to organize the lessons yourself.
yes. she's the only teacher teaching korean 101 and shes good.
Yes, she teaches the subject fairly well.
Depends if you can handle a full Korean teacher.
yes if she is able to speak more clearly, no if she keeps doing the same things over and over and if she is incoherent
possible slow the course down. It seems like it is to accelerated for First time speaking foreign language for any student. I was able to keep up with her because i was semi-proficient in the language. But i could imagine how difficult it would be for someone that is just introduced to the language.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
N/A
She provided a fun atmosphere to learn in.
THANKYOU
Good effort in trying to make the course fun.
she's a really good and nice person. she definitely cares. she tries to get everyone to come to class everyday.
Overall a nice professor.
nice lady just needs to learn more english
She is a very kind teacher. I enjoyed how she gave extra credit chances throughout the whole year and that we could present anything that we wanted to that was related with Korean. To break it down grammar wise i have learned a lot from her and i feel that i improved my writing skills greatly.
18. Other comments:
grading style seems unfair. two students wrote the same answer, one got half credit, the other got full marks. i wrote "course" as a definition for a vocab word, got marked wrong, looked in the book for the answer and it was listed as "course/class". i dont understand? i was allowed to turn in late homework, but another student wasn't. allows some students to take quizzes late, and doesn't let others. it all just seems unfair.
N/A
I didn't care much for the text book. I found it to be confusing/unhelpful for the most part. It didn't feel as if it was organized clearly. Also, the grammar/diction of the parts written in English made it seem as if the book was written more for Korean students learning English than English speaking students learning Korean.
Very nice instructor who
n/a
Do the extra credit.
nice lady.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Shes very good at Korean and knows the course very well. Shes willing to help if you need.
Professor Yuen's strengths as a teacher is that she knows the subject she teaches VERY well. Also, if we had any questions, there is no hesitation that she knows the correct answer.
Very friendly, kind, and fair on the assignments.
She taught us throughgout many activities. To demonstorate new grammers makes us easy to understand.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Just maybe to explain some of the harder things a little clearer. I had some difficulty doing some stuff because we didnt spend enough time on the material.
None whatsoever! She is a great professor and I will miss her dearly!
Explain more on sections in the chapters to do more practice in understanding what we are taught.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She told us she was willing to help, we just had to ask her.
Professor Yuen is always there if we need help. She also shows concern whenever we do not do well so that shows that she really cares about her students and want the best for them.
Ask where are homework was.
She tried to do quiz everyday to identify wether we understand or not.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, she knows the course material very well and if your just taking basics, she will help.
totally yes
Of course, she is a great professor and person overall! Future students will enjoy her class.
I would recommend if you have the drive to learn Korean. It is hard if you don't know what you are doing especially for the tests.
She taught me very kindly even if I'm a internatinal student.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
the lecture lunch was great!
It was such a pleasure to be in her class for two semesters. She was not only a professor to us but also a mother figure. She really cared about us and I will miss her when I take the higher Korean level classes!
none

ì? ì??ë??, ë??무 ê°?ì?¬í?©ë??ë?¤~!!! ^^
She was one of my hardest but favorite teachers. I have never had a teacher who believed so much in her students and tried hard to get them all to the final destination. I really enjoyed this class.
Very caring.
It was great getting to know her and having her as my first foreign language teacher.
I am glad I had her for this class.

She was a fun teacher to learn and helped us know Korean well.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
class is too short
I have no suggestions for her teaching style.
None she is a great professor!
Be more available out of class, especially through e-mail. And to possibly gain more knowledge on how to work on a mac/pc/whatever she uses.
Less Pop quizzes. Haha.
None
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?

She would have the students who were falling behind set up appointments with the student teacher for extra help.
She encourages class participation and students to study.
She always gave a second chance to students in terms of taking test and submitting homework.
She wanted us all to participate in class discussions and do well for ourselves.

yes. class was fun.
Yes, because she tries to teaches intelligibly.
yes I would. I plan on taking her class next semester if i pass.

There should be more Korean courses; only one Elementary I course was offered this semester, and it was at an inconvenient time for me. I would have liked that there were more classes to choose from, as I noticed there would be next (fall) semester--on the other hand, I also noticed that Elementary II had less classes offered...

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She connects with the students on different level.
She knows the subject very well. She also teaches Korean in a fun way for us to understand.
I think her strengths as a teacher is her overall teaching ability because she explains and asks us individually if we understand the material and a lot of pop quiz's.
She makes the class very entertaining and fun to be in.
sometimes I was not able to understand, but she can japanese so she held me.
She taught us Korean and she give many examples on how to learn the grammar items and the sentence structures. She also helped us by giving us examples to follow and she helped us if we needed help. She encouraged us to help each other to learn Korean and it helps if you study with friends so you can stay motivated and so you can see what you guys have to work on. She also encouraged us to practice reading in class and outside of class. The pop quizzes also helped to see what we need to study. She also showed us examples from the textbook, through Korean drama clips to hear how words are said, and we also had teacher assistants to help us.
Friendly Nice Funny Caring
She's a funny teacher who tries to make the class fun. Knows her subject very well.
She's fun and explains things well.
She can explain lessons in a manner that's easily understandable. If something needed to be explained more, all the students had to do was ask. Also Professor Soo Ah Yuen was open to any ideals that would help the class learn, whether it be projects or games.
adding humor to her lectures and if the students does not understand the material she teaches it in a different way for us to learn. very creative (:
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Nothing.
I would not change anything because I believe I have learned many things and she makes class interesting.
Come to class early as early as she can. But she does come in on time and 1 or 2 minutes late at times.
I don't have any suggestions.
less pop quizzes.
The only suggestion I would make is that Professor Soo Ah Yuen should go over her exams after they are graded. This would help students understand what they did wrong and how they can fix it.
nothing. she should not change, because she is very enjoyable to have as a teacher.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She would make sure every student understood the lesson.
Always helped us and showed examples and explained to us what we didn't understand.
She always has concerns for everyone because I believe she would be happy if we all put in a lot of effort to get an A in her class so therefore she asks everyone if they understand and we do daily in class activities to work our brain. We also get scolded for coming to school late which of course is understandable but some teachers don't care and due to that I think she cares for us.
Ask why students study or do their homework, and show a little fear into the students about doing their studying outside of class.
Professor Yuen showed concern for her student by helping us if can questions on class work, homework, or what lessons from the textbook. She gave us examples on what was being covered in the textbook. There was also teacher assistants to help us if we had questions.
Encouraging to try to come more often if they dont show up in like forever.
She's willing to give out extra credit for those who need it. She also has tutors in the class to help us with our Korean.
She'd make sure everyone understood and told us to set up study sessions with the T.A.'s if we needed extra help.
Many extra-credit opportunities were given if a student needed it. Also, she always asked if there were any questions about any lesson that she could address.
whenever a student is not doing great in class, she would encourage them to come to class more often, do extra credit or come to her office for help or ask the student helpers for help as well. very thoughtful teacher (:
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Because she is very fun and can relate to your korean moms.
Yes it was very fun to learn Korean with her.
I would recommend her to all my friends because she is a good teacher to my understanding. I understand her material and she helps us through each chapter. Homework maybe a lot but it is the best way of learning.
Yes, she is very helpful when it comes to teaching Korean and she knows what she is talking about.
Yes I would recommend Professor Yuen if they wanted to take Korean. I got to learn Korean and I got to make new friends by studying with them. She gave many examples on how to learn Korean.
Yes
Yes because she is a sweet person and easy to get along with. She cares for her students.
Yes I would recommend her to students because she's a good teacher and she's fun.
Yes, I would recommend this teacher. She is very friendly and knows her subject area well. The environment was comfortable and that made it easy to learn.
yes, i would. she is by far the greatest teacher that i ever had in my 2 semesters in kcc.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I think that overall she is a fair teacher and her requirements for class is acceptable. I can honestly say her class is one of my favorites so far and it is too bad she does not teach my next required class.
She is my favorite Korean teacher and maybe in KCC.
She helped me learn Korean and it helped when I worked together with my classmates. Also the examples we went over class that involve practicing in Korean helped my learning.
her teaching methods are very good and i hope she teaches korean classes 201 and 202 as well ):
18. Other comments:
I hope more students take Korean.
Thank you for teaching me Korean. It helped that I worked together with my classmates when I had to read or doing class work.
she alwasy teach us writting, reading, speaking, and culture. her class is so good.

She is a good teacher.
Actually she is kind person and she know what she have to teach to students.
she really kind. so i like her.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Soo Ah Yuen should get more leadership.
She needs to realize that some of the students were totally lost during this semester. Some of it was their fault (absent, tardy, not paying attention), however, I don't think that professor herself tried to help those who were lost and got behind.
It would be much better, if she mention about the assignments more than once. Sometimes I forget what assignments we had so it would be helpful. Also I think the class is less organized compared to the importance of what we learn.
I hope she deals with more various materials related to the class subjects
Could be more organized with syllabus that she made.
No more.
i want her to have more passion to teach and have concern about students.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Not much to say.

Yes, she shows much concern for students and know what she is teaching.
Yes because her class is perfect.
Yes, I recommand Soo Ah Yuen to students. I learned various infommation such as History of immigration in hawaii ect,, throughtout the course. I hope another students learn about the things as like me.
I would recommend Soo Ah Yuen to students because she is a fairly good instructor.
i strongly recommend her to students because her class is pretty easy and fun.

her major strength is her PATIENCE, she will teach it to you all day until you get it.
She knows her subject really well.
Her teaching was easy to understand.
She really wants the students to learn. She's caring for the students.
She is compassionate, knowledgeable and understanding of the constraints and limits of learning a foreign language in a limited amount of time.
keeping the classroom lively with jokes
She was professional and friendly.
She is well-prepared and makes learning a lot easier especially when it came to learning grammar for Korean. She made us speak out loud for certain readings, which helped us with pronouncing the words correctly and such.
Knows material well.
Instructor is able to explain every aspect of the subject clearly. Extensive assignments were given to make sure we understood the material.
She makes classes fun and explains materials well.
She's nice and makes class fun.
Taught the subject very well. Helped us when we needed help. Didn't go too fast and was very clear.
Seong Sang Nim knows her Korean subjects really well.
This instructor really know her subject area of Korean. She made us be able to understand and speak this language.
She knows her Korean.
17. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Nothing. I like the way she teaches.
I think she may need to learn english a little more. I know a few of my classmates sometimes gets confused with her, as well as me. When she try's to explain things sometimes she just tends to somewhat confuse people.
A change that would be helpful would be to remove the in class homework checking session, as it would be more useful to the students to have that time to learn instead of doing homework corrections.

19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she would stay after class for any questions or concerns. She never left anyone behind
She provides extra credit by doing an extra section of listening comprehension. So students will learn their subject well from it and helps their grades.
She sometimes goes over the things that the student is confused with.
She often gave us extensions on deadlines, with numerous extra credit opportunities when she saw that we were struggling. She tried her best to explain difficult areas of language to people who have had no prior experience.
telling them what they need for improvements individually
Always reminds us how we can keep our grades good.
Whenever I'd miss class, she would say something. Which to me, showed that she pays attention to who shows up for class.
Remember individuals
The instructor would make sure we asked for extra help outside the class from the student helpers and gave opportunities to make up for lost points.
She offered lots of extra credit opportunities.
She made sure we understood what we were learning and if some people were having a hard time, she'd try help them and have the T.A.'s help too.
Let us practice reading a lot and helped is if we had a hard time.
She goes over stuff when we make many mistakes. Also saids that she doesn't feel good if we are doing bad :)
This instructor showed concerns for students by helping us learn Korean and speak it better.

If you're capable of studying on your own time and putting the effort into learning then she's perfectly fine as a teacher. The class is mostly based upon individuality, so she expects you to go over the material on your own time and wont exactly cover as much as you'd like to learn during class time.

Definitely, if you want to learn a language the fun way, you should take this class.
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
she is kind.
I wish she taught 201 and 202, I always enjoy her class. I feel like taking her class gave me a new group of friends that helped me fall in love with the Korean culture even more. I was one of two students in the KOR 102 class that didn't speak any other languages and she knows that it's harder to learn, I very much appreciated her style of not only teaching but assisting my learning as well.
Somtimes I cannot understanad her English.
I've taken this instructor for along time now, and i must say she never seizes to amaze me at how she can be so caring about her students and her teaching strategies.
