Chai is a fair teacher but admittedly she is strict.( Fortunately my class was blessed with a student teacher from Fullerton and he helped greatly and made the class chill.) The times that Chai did take over the class were okay. Her homework system is really easy, but make sure you really know how to write the characters for her quizzes. Work fast when it comes to skits, you're expected to perform them at the end of the week or so. Fairly easy class once you know her system.

Mrs. Chai is a ok teacher. She explains homework and projects far more clearer than shen. Just remember to never procrastinate on any blog, proposal, or diary! ;) Her tests and quizzes are super easy. Just practice~

Mrs. Chai is a fair teacher. She can be strict at times, but as long as you follow her instructions, you should pass her class without much difficulty at all. One tip, do not procrastinate. Whether it's a blog, a proposal, a diary or etc, try to complete and turn it in as quickly as you can. It will take a couple of tries before she approves it. Overall, she's nice and has a general concern for her students.

BETTER THAN SHEN. I REPEAT. BETTER. THAN. SHEN. She's nicer than Shen, has clearer instruction, a fairer grader, has a better personality (not condescending like Shen), and is overall a better teacher. You will do great as long as you study what she lectures in class.

Mrs. Chai, a experienced, yet brutal teacher, for us Chinese 2/hrs were together, which is totally unfair for us students that are in Chinese II because of the pace of the class, we were expected to do HNRS material, which doesn't make any sense at all. She makes the tests extremely difficult for us to understand but she is knowledgeable and she helps the people who struggle at her quizze, tests,etc. Recently this semester, she introduced a new student teacher, and she is better than Chai Thanks

An overall good teacher, just know that you need to follow and listen to each of her instructions. She doesn't necessarily have favorites but she seems to give FOBS a harder time in class. She really does care about you learning the material and I believe it works.

Good teacher, she's rather helpful. Does give a lot of projects, and quizzes especially at the end of the year. But I feel that I did learn some things, though it's still slow-paced for me. :)

Chai is an OK teacher, she is just very picky on things. She is nice, but gets very annoying at times. She needs to learn better english for other people to understand more too.

She is an awesome teacher. Very very strict but if you abide to her rules, you will be fine. I am a Korean taking this class, and yes, I have learned quite a lot from her. She works really hard.

Just listen to her. If she tells you to BE QUIET. be quiet. Or else she can be a little mean. If you study, it's easy. If you don't , it's hard.
