I had Professor Chi for Chinese 135 (Chinese Film), which was taught in Chinese. I heard his teaching style is a little different for his classes taught in English (less lenient, I'm guessing), so this review might be a little biased.

Overall, the class was very interesting, even for someone who is not into Chinese films. Professor Chi is very knowledgeable of Chinese film and Chinese history. His Chinese is pretty good, considering that he learned it as a second language. He might come across as a little intimidating and formal at first (I love his suits lol), but he turned out to be pretty nice, and actually wants to get to know his students.

The class was not hard, but you must go to all the film viewings and show up for lecture (he grades on participation). The quizzes and take-home final come from lecture material, so you would have to study. The entire class is conducted in Chinese, but don't be afraid to take it, because he is looking for students who are there to learn, not to just to pass with an easy A.
