Great appreciation being one members in Kaidy’s class and having profound discussions on psychological topics which benefit my skillsets on both EN speaking and critical thinking skill. A remarkable teaching style and program design :).

The classes were all well-structured! Kaidy was a well-prepared and experienced teacher, he designed the questions specifically fitted for the topics each weeks and guided us to build conversation skills gradually. We had a lot of chances to express our opinions and ideas. His classes are highly recommended!

講師課程設計能啟發思考,主題貼近生活,學員能有充分機會討論與表達,氣氛輕鬆。上課方式以教師提問後,先進行小組討論再個別發表為主。課程不但能練習口說,加上講師會適度小結與補充,輔以板書呈現討論內容與主題架構,使學員對主題有較完整的瞭解。值得推薦!

老師準備的都問題很棒,耐心聽學生回答,也很會引導學生進一步思考。適合想多開口和用英文討論的人。 不過因為程度分級是自由心證,老師也不會糾正錯誤或提出更適合的說法,對於精進英文能力幫助不大。

It is my best experience in MDT so far and I'd like to recommend this class to everyone who is trying to improve spoken English and willing to know social science knowledge. The teacher is well prepared for weekly material with a clear structure and creates a good classroom atmosphere.

Kaidy is a wonderful teacher! He's very good at guiding us to think differently and individual opinions in related topics. He would also tell us about some psychology theories and historical development, overall i've enjoyed his classes :)

Kaidy is a well-prepared and agreeable instructor. The topics he chosed are relevant and resonating. I enjoyed the discussion every week and learned a lot from it. I highly recommend Kaidy to those who have interest in psychology or have curiosity about human behavior.

If you want to challenge yourself or maybe someone else, come to this class. We did a lot of discussion about psychology. The questions discussed in the class were quite down-to-earth but difficult. It was a challenge for me. Thank you, Mr. Kaidy and my open-minded classmates. 😁

Kaidy is a patient teacher with good listening skills and good at encouraging students to share their ideas. The reading materials are helpful and interesting too. Very inspiring!

Highly recommend!! Topics Kaidy chooses are closed to our daily life with some interesting phycological facts such as how to persuade people, how to achieve your goals, the definition of happiness. Kaidy organizes and leads classes very well. From small group sharing to whole class discussion, step by step digging into questions, students have enough chances to practice speaking. It’s a comfort to have Kaidy’s class at Saturday after 5 working days!

Kaidy is a very kind, patient and open minded person so you wouldn’t feel nervous or uncomfortable when talking or expressing your ideas to him. The class always goes smoothly and in a very structured way, if you’re a logical thinker you would love this. Given his academic background, it’s needless to say how professional he is in this area. Since this is a psychological class, be prepared to express your feelings (doesn’t have to be anything too personal) and thoughts a lot. Overall I highly recommend this class to anyone who’s either interested in psychology or behaviour economics. Or just anyone who would like to explore/learn more about himself/herself. This is a riveting class to take and probably the best I’ve taken in the past 5 years.

老師會很仔細聽同學的分享,讓人能輕鬆與老師對談,享受對話的樂趣

MDT 特色之一是 老師不太會打斷學生發言,這樣也沒有不好。 不過我會建議MDT 可以落實分級,因為如果這是訂在高級的課程 同學程度如果明顯不到,這樣其實其他人被迫要聽很多 中式英語,覺得對學習沒有太大幫助。
