⦅Ⅰ⦆IMPRESSIONS OF 2018/19 PSYCHOLOGY COURSE

In March 2018, I was invited to prepare and teach an English immersion course on the topic of Psychology. From the outset I worked with a motivated and inquisitive group of learners mainly from the first and second grades. Given the difficulty of some content in the course, I was extremely impressed with the effort that all of the students put in throughout the year. As the course progressed, I was particularly pleased with how positively each student responded to the lesson activities, which included short lectures, group discussions, in-class experiments, pair interviews and individual tasks. Overall, it was an energetic, fun and fantastic group to teach, with a high level of student participation. I look forward to seeing each of these students again in class in the future.
