鬼佬, accent 正, 又識少少中文

Cons:
嚴重少sources
可能因為新來,俾分幾手緊(其他人啲grade好似都普遍比較低)
Send email 問佢野, 佢有次過咗deadline先覆

Allan is the worst teacher I have ever meet since my primary school, and is also the first teacher who knows absolutely nothing about how to teach writing course and how to polish the phrases and vocabularies in the essay.
Nor can he explain clearly what I should do to edit my essay. What he did in the classroom are only chatting unrelated things and playing silly games that do nothing good for our writing ability.
Despite requests, he refused the unveil the standard he used to mark essays and infographics. This is very confusing--- we are expected to achieve the goal that we don't know exactly.
In summary, if you can choose and if you want to improve your writing, Allan should never be your choice.

Jon is nice,
BUT 佢啲comment全部都冇乜用
想走堂可以reg佢, 見到d non-local走曬堂佢都唔理,
想嘅Hea話就reg, 想好grade一定唔係揀佢

Eve好好人架,又nice又talkative,好鐘意笑,好肯同你傾計(要多啲搵佢吹水,會加participation分)。

呢個course唔算多野做,前後兩份Assignment:
1. Infographic:分組,3-4人1group,諗個topic,整張圖文並茂嘅海報出嚟,啲圖可能要自製,圖要多,重點要係presentation嗰陣highlight出嚟。唔難,但唔好照住讀,亦都唔好寫定稿。

2. Essay:自由文,議論題,作得正正常常跟足格式佢唔會為難你,Draft交一次比佢睇。

上堂氣氛和諧,Eve又會比Hints你

Dont reg this teacher. This teacher has poor academic background who evaded taking HKALE English Exam and studied EDUHK for 4 years. She was harming lots of secondary school students during her teaching in the past and gave me a bad grade in previous sem A. Scream and horrible!!!!

allen prefers factual topics than some controversial topics,
e.g. should uber be legalised in hk/ should renewable energy be promoted in china? (what he like)
e.g. plastic surgery/ political identity of hk ppl/ gay marriage (he will be picky n give many discouraging comments)

lesson is relaxing n free but he doesn't like late students, and he seldom give useful guidelines to us
he is a christian but i wrote moral essay (turn out i got a B)

利申: dse writing 5**

no idea為什麼之前的人對她comment都這麼好
不說grade 她的英文accent是真的難聽
我不知道一個EN的資深prof是怎麼可以有這種accent
上她的堂根本聽不下去

同埋做info個時佢同我呢個學graphic design嘅人話我冇用uniform color?
好想知佢係邊度人……

成日上堂唔跟handouts,堂堂睇人地啲既citation,唔知學左啲咩⋯⋯
同埋比較鐘意啲上課答問題既學生。

好用心嘅老師,每份功課都俾超多feedback, 尤其係first draft啲comment 超多,逐個point 教你點寫。我知自己啲分係mean附近,一早已經有心理準備攞b了, 自己攞咩grade 唔怪得老師,tiffany 已經盡晒力教我地。

上堂幾輕鬆,不過比分幾嚴,特別係最後嗰篇essay,要好具體先會高分。take attendance,要準時。

This course was kinda boring, but not that difficult.
We had a group project and an essay. For the essay, we had to submit 2 separate drafts.
