Really appreciate Alex for updating latest headlines each week, providing well-designed worksheet with insightful questions for reflection, and facilitating “round-table discussion” smoothly. This class does bring me closer to the world. 準備四刷這堂課～繼續長知識
The class is great!! I acquired lots of knowledge and perspectives (and some issues I never noticed before). Articles provided during the class are wide and deep, like conflict between Iran and the US. Alex is a well-prepared and learned teacher. He put forward many deep questions and guided us to think and express our thought. I'm really happy I made the choice to join Alex's class!
more political topic plz
This time our discussion went further from NIMBY (not in my backyard), automation at the workplace (textile industry), school technologies, housing justice to escalating conflict between the US and Iran (assassination of the Iranian most powerful General). Again, broaden my mind and worldview. Look at and see the world with a clear mind. A huge thank for Alex!
Alex is patient and well-prepared. Recommend for those who'd like to train the critical thinking and practice English expression.
Now I get to know why I enjoy Alex's news discussion a lot. It's because his weekly articles, questions and open mindedness allow me to connect my personal troubles with public issues and practice speaking out in English. Let me use a different way to view the world around me. Thank you so much Alex.
Topics are all very inspiring, intriguing, and related to the public. Some are even more controversial, which could help you think deeper and build your personal viewpoint thought the process of debating. Every student has plenty of time to express opinions, and Alex will help with more concept and more precise vocabularies.
Amazing, spontaneous leading style. Providing latest news articles with some questions for discussion really helped me understand and be able to apply the concepts in the news and now I think I understand them better than I could have if I’d only read about them.幽默帥哥又認真準備，準備三刷這堂課
Alex is always well prepared and willing to to share his knowledge of the topics. He also takes notes of what the class says, making us feel like our opinions matter. I strongly recommend Alex if you're still deciding which teacher to go with.
Alex's teaching style is to make students feel relaxed and comfortable to speak. Also, I learned a lot. Thanks indeed!
Alex is a very patient teacher, well-prepared in class, and the reading he shares is really useful. Since this is a discussion class, your classmates play a huge part in your overall learning experience as well.
Alex is always well-prepared, and is very patient to listen to the students. In the first class, we talked about the format of the class, what the topics we gonna discuss on, and you can always have your opinions of the topics. This class gave me many different perspectives to see the world.
Thank you Alex and of course other classmates. :)
Alex, incredibly brilliant and tolerant attitude as always! Ha Thanks a million for his giving me several different views to think over during analyzing news in class. Looking forward to joining his class again in near future.
Alex would give abundant materials few days before a session, encouraging students to read over them for discussion, which may give a participant an opportunity to improve the skills of scheduling and reading. He is always open-minded about topics he's familiar with, e.g. politics, economics, etc. For those who are familiar with or interested in the fileds AND wants to improve a little bit more on English speaking with the already-quite-good base, you should be seriously considering Alex's class.
Discussed a lot.
This is my third times to join Alex’s class. I’ve truly learned a lot from him in each class!!!Alex is really good at stimulating us to think critically through different kinds of news.In his class, I've not only improved my English skill but also gained a lot of valuable knowledge! Alex really knows a lot, even those current affairs happening in Taiwan he knows well! Thanks ever so much, Alex!! Your class is awesome.
