Making an impact

Hear from educators whose practice have been positively impacted by our innovative approach to learning and professional development.

Reviewing past lessons

The reviews of the past lessons [from the online Chinese workshops] were very valuable as they helped me to regularly consolidate my new learning. The lesson content was very relevant to my daily life which helped me to grasp concepts faster. In my practice, I will incorporate this consistent repetition to help reinforce my learners' abilities and knowledge.
