Intermediate Modern Chinese for Advanced Students
Sun Laoshi is a bit of a mixed bag. She initially appears genuine and kind, but I began to see her as tubborn, meticulous, sometimes superficial. By the end of my third quarter with her, I wanted to get out of that class. Hearing her voice four days a week, three quarters in a row was one of the most depressing things in my life. She does an okay job teaching, but there is very little variety from day to day, and her class generally loses interest really fast and nobody talks. And don't be fooled by her apparent sweet demeanor, she is very choosy in who she favors. Too traditional of a Chinese thinker as well, some of her ideology is absolutely ridiculous. Hearing her talk about politics made me want to vomit. Tolerable only to an extent.
