The environment is friendly, congenial, low-pressure, enjoyable The course is adaptable to my needs and interests.
My instructors Gary (Cantonese) and Jasmine (Mandarin) are friendly, professional, patient, and very flexible to my needs as a full-time professional.
I find Gary to be particularly good at tailoring textbook exercises in ways that address my problem areas better.
Jasmine is really great about introducing fun, creative new material that is still appropriate for my level and mixes formal, literary language with very colloquial Mandarin.
In my Cantonese sessions we mostly follow the book’s structure but learn lots of extra vocabulary as needed when I’m encouraged to make new examples. I also appreciate how flexible Gary is when I bring in my own outside materials (like flyers, menus, etc.) to learn from that day.
In my Mandarin sessions Jasmine has a nice way about firmly correcting my grammar mistakes and helping me understand them from a different perspective that is very positive yet draws attention directly to the problem.
The best part of the whole course is the flexibility and friendliness of the instructors. Staff at the front desk is efficient and accommodating.

Her point of development is about being more assertive ie. don't hesitate to challenge me more when l made mistakes.
