It is very practical for Ingmar's teaching method. His way made every student read articals per week and practice to make a briefing about the artical and his/her opinion. It's useful at work.

這是我第二次上Ingmar的課,很喜歡他輕鬆、沒壓力的討論式的上課方式。這堂課的用意是讓學生勇於用英文發言,Ingmar透過引導的方式,協助大膽的用英文說出自己的想法。

每次上課,Ingmar老師都會以輕鬆聊天的方式,詢問同學們的生活近況,接著透過數篇新聞主題引導每位同學們進行討論與經驗分享。過程中若有更好的英語說法或更適合的單字,老師都會給予建議並整理成筆記提供學生參考,是個很用心的老師~

Ingmar is awesome teacher, he kept everyone to speak and share our article in class. Sometimes he would extend our topics to relate with about culture or job issues that made us to exchange our experience a lot. It was fun and useful. I will choose his class again. :)

討論的話題很廣,發言的機會也很多,Ingmar會注意到哪些同學較少發言並鼓勵引導,推薦給計畫出國唸書或工作的人,可以在輕鬆愉快的氣氛下,練習在團體裡表達自己的想法

Ingmar is always enthusiastic about group discussions in which he invites everyone to participate after classmates' article sharing. We feel as if we are talking to a close friend happy to know what and how everyone's doing. I do have a great time. Thanks Ingmar !!

老師會鼓勵引導發言,以輕鬆的方式討論,也可以藉由同學之間不同性質的選文學習到平常較少接觸的議題。

Ingmar is not a "traditional teacher", but more like a host. He asked interesting questions and he encouraged us to talk. We had discussed many interesting articles in the class, it's a great environment for me to practice English speaking, because I can use English! and no more grammar classes 😁😁😁
