7. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Teacher was very helpful and friendly. Answered questions effectively.
Language acquiring.
Doing the presentation orals.
The extra Vocab she always gave us while going over the required Vocab.
I think the sections where we learned conversational phrases in a school setting were valuable.
It really helped with the instructor reiterating the definitions of basic Korean terms, and providing students with review sheets for grammar points, different from those in the textbook.
She made very helpful powerpoint slides to aid the teaching of the class.
Great use of studying grammar points and vocabulary. Great aspect of teaching and was very fair.
I learned many new grammar points as well as vocabulary.
Really enjoyed the movie
Everything
yoon hwa song sang nim is a caring teacher she knows the teaching material well. and tried so hard to make the class interesting.
She was very enthusiastic about teaching the learning material. Even when we were having difficulties, or simply forgot material, she was simply corrected us and was even willing to go over the lesson again.
Doing partner conversations.
Improving communication with other students.
Organized well, and class participation
I like how the course was very well organized.
The professor speaking in Korean for the majority of the time really helped in learning the language. Her teaching styles also made learning easier.
I thoroughly enjoyed all of the topics and assignments given. They were just challenging enough where I had to think but easy enough that it didn't take too much time.
The weekly vocab quizzes really helped with learning new vocabulary. The performance tasks were valuable in that it allowed me to be for fluid in speaking in Korean and understanding the grammar and what the conversations are talking about. The lesson tests were not too difficult, and it convered everything we learned in those chapters.
grammer teachings
The way the course was taught from one grammar point to the next and followed the book closely worked really well for me.
Deep explanation
Instructor really took the time and care for her students, and made the learning process much easier and more comfortable.
I think the culture study is very valuable.
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
none
Sometimes she couldn't understand our English well.
I think some of the scenarios we studied, like in a taxi, were a little less valuable than others.
It doesn't help when homework are due or returned way after lesson tests because for students we cannot learn from our mistake beforehand so we might make the same mistakes on the tests.

The projects for the course could be adjusted. I don't favor group projects and most of the time it doesn't go very well unless the students get to pick groups. Should also change it from 101 final since it is practically the same thing.

18. Other comments:
Thank you!
I suggest to give us more chance to practice Korean will be better.
I feel like she should have made us practice some of the grammar points and vocab with each other by orally speaking it instead only lecture and some worksheets. Otherwise Yoon Hwa Choi Seon Sang Nim was a wonderful teacher and I would highly recommend her to other students.
I really enjoyed your class ì? ì??ë??!!!
Enjoyed this course very much!
Great professor. Very nice and understanding. Would recommend to anyone.
Great teacher!
Yoon Hwa Choi is a good professor and cares about the students
Although the work load for this class is extremely demanding, Ms. Choi was always available to help. Very kind and patient, but very stern with the class. I enjoyed how she explained every class clearly and loud enough for us to all hear.
She was one of the best teachers so far! It was always enjoyable going to class; I would definitely recommend her to another classmate if they were interested in learning Korean. Her presence is inviting and fun while also maintaing the professionalism of that of a teacher.
Really great course!
I enjoyed coming to every class that I attended. Compared to other classes I took this semester, this class was the most fun class. The instructor made funny comments everyday, which made me forget about stress from other classes such as engineering. As long as you come to class almost everyday, study for vocab quiz and study for 2 hours before exams, you will definitely get a good grade.
VERY FUN CLASS!!! Entertaining Professor! :)
Teacher was very engaging and presented materials successfully.
I enjoyed this class! The instructor is great. I would highly recommend taking her class!
Really enjoyed taking this class with Yoon Hwa, she has a good sense of humor and is a very nice person.
There should be more time between things. Instead of one week where you have back to back things. Like quiz on Monday, script on Tuesday, performance on Wednesday, and test on Thursday. The schedule is too overwhelming for the students.
