    Great class. We cover a lot of pages. It's lots of fun. We talk about many things and also I translate pages of a (300-word max) Chinese textbook made for new learners. Learning Chinese can be frustrating, but David is very patient and fun. I really enjoy class.

    Listening and translating the Chinese book we are reading is a wonderful addition to my Chinese learning experience. I am usually focused on reading and speaking, but my weakness is listening comprehension. I really enjoy the time we spend together. It's almost like a game to figure out what is going on. Thank you very much David for a unique learning experience.

    Very interesting lesson. David asks the needs of the student, in order to decide together what textbook to use.

    I love David's lessons. He teaches the material, but also confront different sentences with same meaning. At the beginning a quick test to check vocabulary.
