News Discussion and Critical Thinking
During every discussion, Alex and other peers always express a wide variety of perspectives upon the topics and news. Furthermore, despite that I am not familiar with the news that are going to be discussed during the class, I actually enjoyed the discussion and learnt a lot while doing my own research for the new topics. What makes me even more satisfied is the high quality of teacher-student involvement, which always inspires me to go deeper and wider for the topics.

News Discussion Class w/ Alex
I do not like this class as Alex gave little feedback about our English during the class. Even we asked to write some suggestions/comments in the chat room so that we can take away after class, the feedback is really limited. I feel very frustrated in attending this session.

News Discussion Class w/ Alex
I really enjoyed Alex class and really learned o lot from him. He provided the material a few days before the class so I had enough time to prepare and I could find more information related to to topic. For some difficult concept, he explained with examples and easy words, which made me understand more easily.

Each week I learn new words from the materials and discussions in Alex's class, which helps me accumulate vocabulary gradually and gain diverse perspectives from my classmates.

News Discussion and Critical Thinking
Alex teaches the class by using critical thinking to understand and discuss global events. Before the class begins, he send an article to introduce the topic and a set of questions that will guide discussion.

Alex is an incredible teacher, sharing lots of article / news /report with us. He has always provided good insights and listened what we said and given us feedbacks accordingly. The class let me read and know lots of global news and understand whats going on in the world now. As a global citizen, being aware of the world news and having critical thinking ability are very important in nowadays. Thanks Alex, you are nice and patient!

This Is America: A Critical Look at the United States
Every session includes a few readings. Students need to prepare before starting the discussion, or they will have difficulties answering Alex's questions. The topics are all special and can provide insight into one aspect of the US – a compelling opportunity for anyone curious about exploring this unique superpower. Btw, Alex has extensive knowledge about the US so students can feel free to ask him any questions during the class.
