i really enjoy these four weeks on Lukas's class. The preparation of pre-reading article and note-taking after class help me a lot. I appreciate Lukas's working hard attitude for our class. i like Lukas's teaching style and feel interesting in every discussion. Nowadays, I focus on adjusting my expressing precisely and fluently. I understand the skill of speaking needs time to improve, so I will continue to resign on MDT class in the future.

第一次在MDT上課,原本有點擔心線上上課的品質,沒想到課程超讚的!Lucas很用心準備教材,很有邏輯性、思考性和活動執行性。課前我一定會閱讀教材,內容包含主題相關的詞彙、3~5篇文章、影片或者音樂欣賞、問題思考等。雖然看似很多,但這就是我想要來學習的目的。Lucas分享在雲端和課後的筆記,對於想要精進英文的人是一定要看的。 上課時,Lucas很重視每個人的發言和多寡的平均,也很善於提出問題讓我們從不同的視角去思考問題,最好玩的是role play和debate,有時還會刺激到冒汗。同時,我也很喜歡Lucas分享美國常用的俚語和搭配詞,對於有不錯英文基礎的我,開口說英文不是難事,但要能夠「把自己當成英文為母語者」,俚語和搭配詞則是不能缺少的。 因為我在學校也有教學經驗,很能理解備課和帶討論的樂趣及挑戰,尤其是線上課又是另一個層次。Lucas在各個方面都掌握得很好,很有教學的熱忱,讓我覺得上課不再是上課,而是享受聊天對話的過程。整體而言,CP值超高,大推推推推!!!

(線上課程經驗) 1. Lukas準備的課程教材豐富多元,還會提供課後筆記。2. 課程中大部分以討論為主,大家都有發言機會,也有分組討論,增加口說時間。3. 氣氛算輕鬆,不會有壓力,讓我對於英文口說更有信心。

Teacher Lukas is always well-prepared for the course to offer us handouts before the class, and we had sufficient time to talk and practice speaking very well.

Lukas’ class is one of the best in MDT. He always prepares a lot of materials and encourage EVERYONE to share thoughts in the class. I had so much fun during the class. The debate and role play section are enjoyable and definitely a good chance to refresh your brain and practice speaking. I will highly recommend this class to all of you.

Lukas老師不論是課前(提供文章、native speaker常用俚語片語及當周上課單字內容…)還是課後(補充課堂上同學所討論的單字…)都很用心準備,以利我們事先預習及課後復習。課程中會引導我們從不同角度思辯,有時是role play,有時以debate的方式互動,整堂課下來,開口練習的時間很多,老師也會適時糾正我們的發音及提供想法,是屬於有架構性的主題討論。Lukas 真的是個很棒的老師,每次上完課都收穫滿滿!

I really appreciate Lukas's teaching and learned a lot from his class. I'm already checking my next session with him and found out almost all are full, so popular! All materials and the classes are well prepared and suitable for discussion. At class Lukas will call every students by turns to voice their ideas so everyone can get an equal speaking time. I highly recommend anyone who want to improve their speaking and enhance critical thinking skill to try out his class!

Lukas準備教材很用心,教材在課前會先寄給大家預習,取自國際新聞題材,另外設計口說常用片語練習,用debate time來練習批判性思考邏輯,最後也會為整堂課中大家提到新的名詞/片語做一個總整理表,讓大家能課後複習,是一位很棒的老師!

Lukas is always well prepared with every course. The teaching method he uses through team debates really encourages students to think critically and articulate their opinions from both sides. Really improved my English speaking skills throughout the course! Recommended A+ teacher without question!

Jennifer Chen 2021年9月.英文討論與新聞閱讀 我很高興我在MDT第一個接觸的老師是Lukas, 負責任、細心、敏銳的特質,讓我深深覺得”來對地方了”! 第一期還沒上完四堂課(5人),迫不及待報名參加他六堂課3人班的我,深諳學習的成效與否在於有沒有一個好教練幫我專注與投入,突破高原期的停滯不前,並找到持續不懈的動機。 Lukas每堂課都會有明確的具體目標(事前研讀1-2篇文章),不會天馬行空要同學回答,他的教法更有目的、利用小組辯論或他輪流的提問做無壓力的討論讓你認真思考、更聚焦專注。但有目標的學習其實還不夠,他在每堂課後會巧用手機app的分享單字等資源及就學生討論的想法整理出有系統的紀錄讓學生持續學習,這一點是我覺得最棒的! 至於我在MDT還會不會有第二個老師,我不知道,因為目前我只要Lukas, 其餘免談! 😊😊😊

Lukas is a well-prepared teacher, he provides materials for students to preview and review. During the class, students can share thoughts and hear different voices from other classmates. I have learned a lot by thinking in many different ways, especially in the topics that I am not familiar with. I also learned some idioms and interesting languages. I highly recommend this class.

Lukas always encouraged us to think much deeper in his classes and gave much useful feedback to teach us how to speak like a native speaker. To be specific, he always fixed the minor mistakes of sentences, when students were not familiar with how to use them. Furthermore, he would organize systemically these phrases or chunks for us to learn after classes. Thank you, Lukas.

Lukas always gives us interesting topics, and makes us thinking a lot. The debates or discussions in the class provide the opportunities to explain my ideas in English. Although I can't explain them well, Lukas taught me how to talk naturally as native speakers. Moreover, Lukas did well-compiled with the vocabularies and idioms, so we could memorize them easier. That's why I continue to join the class.

Lukas 是個在課前有著充分準備的老師,不僅僅提供文章,還提供外國人常用的片語、俚語來加深對文章相關內容的補充應用;在課程中也會適時地給出來自於他的思維方式與文章的看法,最後甚至設計一場小小的辯論,讓同學們站在不同的立場溝通辯駁來激發學生的臨場思考;另外老師幽默風趣有耐心,能在學生需要幫助時適時給予一些時間鼓勵表達,但又整體掌握時間非常剛好,總結來說是個滿棒的課程體驗。

Lukas's lessons are definitely worthy trying! His lesson plans are well-organized. During the lesson, lots of discussion, sharing, and debate are included. It's hard to believe that students can practice speaking quite often within 1.5 hours, isn't it? Brilliant lessons :-D

Lukas conducted the classes in a very efficient way and all the topics he had chosen for us are quite interesting and globalizing. We all had many chance to speak out our minds with different point of view. Good chance for me to use English to debate on those topics. If you are keen to improve your English speaking skills, I am sure you would gain lots of help from Lukas’s classes.

認真說!!!! 這是我上過最棒的線上教學平台以及老師, 本來是抱著試試看的心情, 意外的收穫滿到不行, 每個禮拜Lukas都會提供不同的topic, 課前會給我們完整的文章內容以及單字補充, 上課過程中會用不同的方式進行互動, role play或debate等等, 不用擔心團體上課會減少開口的機會, Lukas會慢慢引導你進行critical thinking, 結合閱讀/口說/時事討論/批判性思考的課程, 總之就是真心推到爆啦>< This is really the best online teaching platform and teacher I have ever met. Before the lesson, Lukas gave us a document of some new articles and vocabularies previously. You don't have to worry that group learning will reduce your chance to practice speaking English. Because Lukas always tries interesting ways pushing students to talk like role play or debate. This is a lesson that gives you a chance to read, to speak, and to think in English. Sincerely recommend everyone!

老師會準備一些常見但平常不一定有機會被認真討論的議題進行討論。並於課前有完整準備,事後也很大方分享單字等資源讓學生持續學習。

Lukas很會帶領課程討論的節奏及回饋學生的想法,課堂和課後的複習教材也對學習英語有很大的幫助。課程是有架構性的主題式討論,能夠探討很多元的議題。也在課堂上認識很多不同生活圈的同學,接觸到不一樣的想法,是很有趣的課程!

老師非常幽默也非常會引導學員思考 會針對背景知識還有相關單字做補充 每一堂課下來都會學到很多單字跟知識外 還能去思辯各種議題的不同面向 Lukas is a very fun and encouraging teacher. Students not only can learn words and phrases in the class but also have an in-depth discussion on various topics. Join the class and you can definitely have valuable takeaways from each session👍

Overall, Lukas is very dedicated. He guided us to have debates around specific topics to train us to organize our thoughts. After classes, he wrote down what we could improve in terms of pronunciation, which is helpful. It's very fruitful taking his class.
