I am very sad to see Ms. Ong go - despite how difficult it may seem, she still gave me an A for final semester grade, because she can tell that you place effort in what you do. Teaches efficiently and you learn quite a lot about Chinese culture.
Ms. Pang's class afterwards is hell. I hope that we h
Ms ONG is the best~~! i'll miss her when she retires but she said she wants to leave in a happy kind of way. so... Good Luck ms ong~~!!! it's just sad that future lowell students cant have you for their chinese teacher :( you inspire every one of your students. *happy tears*
Ms. Ong is so much better than Pang its not even funny. You learn, you understand, the grade you get is the grade you EARNED. Unlike ms. pang, where it's drawing out of a hat for your grade.
Ms. ong is a great teacher. but her class is very difficult esp. coming from pang...learn lots about chinese culture and traditions. she teaches you a lot of other random stuff too. like college advice, your future, etc...She really CARES for her students. mother-like and always willing to help
Ms. Ong knows her material pretty well but shes not THAT easy of a teacher. But i would still recommend her (:
When I was at LHS, many regarded her as the best Chinese teacher (esp. compared to a certain "NP"). Even after years of being out of her classes, I've retained some of my Mandarin. One of the most inspiring teachers there! Thanks Ms. Ong (student from Class of '02)
=D i liked her class. you know when every quiz and test are and what exactly is going to be in it. she covers everything and doesn't just pop randoms things in.
The teacher who got me into college, guided me through life, and showed the most care to her students. Ms. Ong truly deserves all FIVES, the highest remarks.
Saved by final semester, cuz she counts the last one if its higher than the first two!
She is an amazing person. She's truly caring and fair toward her students. She treats her students as if they were her children. Ms. Ong can definitely teach, but you do have to study on your own. She pushes you. My advice: never slack off. Study hard and you'll get an A.
She is a very thoughtful teacher, who has a pretty fair grading system. She has high respect for her students. If you get two B's for the first 2 quarters and an A for the third quarter, she will give you an A for the effort you put in the class. I wish she also taught AP Chinese.
Very, very caring teacher. She is very considerate and WILL listen to you. It also helps that her English is excellent. But you MUST be self-driven, or you will NOT pass her tests. (she gives hardly any homework)
She's a really good teacher. I went from C's in Li and Danforth, to straight A's in her class (Chinese 3). Her tests are easy. There's the sentences test, and the unit dictation+grammar tests. The sentences test are easy b/c she gives you the sentences before the test and tests you in the same exact order of sentences and I can memorize them in like 1-2 hours. The dictation is also really easy b/c there's a lot of bonus EC characters. Overall, I learned a lot.
She is one of the nicest teachers ever, and knows the material well. Definitely a good pick.
excellent teacher. she knows her stuff and knows how to teach it. she gives you a packet in the beginning of the semester with the entire schedule laid out so that you can plan accordingly. the packet also has lots of supplements to the book that were very helpful. dictation tests was sentences straight out of the packet. translations and oral tests given as well. all very fair grading with oppertunities for EC. she may appear stern at first, but is in fact very nice
She has really good English (obviously since she was born here) compared to other Chinese teachers. One of the best, she has a paper with all the test days so if you're a good student, you can study weeks in advance. You definitely learn more about the culture in general and her stories are fun. Don't get on her bad side.
An extremely great teacher! can get off topic but its actually interesting. You know when every test is during the semester because she gives u a paper. She really wants the best for you and will take the time to help.
sometimes gets off topic, but she's a great teacher. make sure you self-study. hardly any hw, but it's graded. be sure to do well on every graded assignment because there aren't that many! imagine if Pang was the language head!!!! (shiver)
I looved Ms. Ong's chinese classes! I actually learned Chinese and because of her I majored in the language in college. Her class may be challenging but you'll learn how to speak chinese after you're done!
Wonderful wonderful teacher!
Motherly. Very nice. Very approachable. I never learned Mandarin before, but I speak a little bit of Cantonese. Overall the class was HARD for me. Covers a lot very quickly. A bit hard to hear if you're in the back. Sometimes it is overwhelming and discouraging. However, get used to her system. If you don't procrastinate and look at what's coming up, you can definitely get an A. She doesn't play favorites. She also teaches you a lot of culture and trivia.
most awesome chinese teacher. learn her system and u will do great. that is all u need to know
she gives u a packet at the beginning of semester listing all tests and hmwk assignments so you can prepare for them in ur own time. she's very fair and u definitely learn. since she is department head, she can be busy at times.
she's GOOD. sometimes i feel kinda lost becuz she goes at a pretty quick pace. her test are one after another. and she's pretty strict on her grading policy. but shes nice.
Good teacher for Chinese. Adds Chinese culture into her lessons. Tests aren't very hard and broken up into catagories, but they're all on the same week and that could be stressful.
Ms. Ong is the best Chinese teacher. You learn a lot and she is very easy to talk to.
she was hard at the begining because she went a little fast but i caught on and learned a lot. also got my first A for a final in chinese ever!
she is great! she speaks both mandarin and cantonese. she teaches idioms so the words you learn arent so boring once you find out there are other meanings to it
THE best Chinese teacher. A bit tough, but you can really respect her.
