My 9-month- long Chinese course in Inlingua is now over. I dare say I have made a great improvement, because I started from the very beginning “ni hao”.
I think great thing about learning Chinese in Inlingua is that you get to practice and review a lot. For me, memorizing new vocabularies always has been a problem in learning a new language. I felt that the materials that I learned in each lesson is just the right amount. I had enough time to digest the meaning and usages in class. This allowed me to have less pressure and prevented me from giving up learning Chinese. In fact, I think I may have developed more and more interest in them!
Teachers put a lot of effort in making sure that students understand the materials. For instance, they review a lot and especially, make you to use the vocabularies, or structures to form a sentence. I think this really helped me to grasp the meaning and sometimes it made me realize that I actually did not understand it after all.
In Inlingua, classes are not that big so that the students can get the appropriate amount of attention from the teachers. Smaller class, more attention from teachers, more chance of speaking and practicing!
Last, but not least, the staffs at Inlingua are VERY nice and friendly. Also, I got as much help as a foreign full time student can get from the staffs. Staffs also occasionally arrange some events like barbeque party, or going on a walk, etc., which is a great chance of getting along with students in other classes.
Overall, I am very satisfied with my experience in here.
Thank you so much Inlingua!
