ECON3011 Intermediate Microeconomic Theory

Professor: Kota MURAYAMA

Oversimplified lecture notes. Coverage on lectures were conceptual based and completely irrelevant with homework questions / quizzes. I end up spending numerous times reading the textbook to catch up the learning progress. DEFINITELY NOT RECOMMENDED.

ELTU2005 Speaking And Presenting Like Ted

Shared by Anonymous

2021-10-22

Professor: Liu Ngar Fun

The teacher gives nonsense feedback on presentations, messy notes (don't really know what you are learning), so basically feedback cannot make you improve (improve on your own). A very traditional teacher that only admires foreign students. In conclusion, pretty useless, not learning sth new, but can get not bad grades.

the teacher is quite chur during lesson, workload is not light, but the grade is fair. Although the teacher is chur, she gives constructive feedbacks and you could score high if you follows her comments. Just smile and speaks with lots of genki and try to use as much honorifics as possible then you will be able to gain good grade lol

LAWS1042 Contract II

Shared by Anonymous

2021-08-12

Professor: Prof. Alan Gibb

Prof. Gibb is a very well-structured and passionate teacher. He could answer any of our questions and provide help with our studies. He also posted detailed notes and revision videos which is very nice indeed. Yet, Prof. Mik, in comparison, most of the time told us to rely on the textbooks and cannot answer our questions. Her tutorials are, sad but true, useless because she encourages us to share our points and to rebut them on herself. She did not introduce us to the correct approach to tackle the scenario. We are left with more doubts after each tutorial.

FREN2000 French II

Shared by Anonymous

2021-07-30

Professor: Mr. Benjamin Malcom Thomas GAUDET

The professor created some useful ppt with voice clips which facilitated my learning. The voice clips saved my time to look up for french dictionary (voice clips may not be provided by other professors). He was willing to answer your questions too. However, the course might be a bit too demanding for people who didn't do well/ did average in FREN1000.

Professor: Dr Kwan Sui Chi

The professor was generous in giving grades (As long as you follow the instructions and work hard for it, you should get a decent grade). Also, he was super friendly and down-to-earth. He understood students' concerns and would always answer your question. Also, you don't have to worry about the exam because the professor would give you clear guidance on what you should write and how to achieve higher marks.

KORE1000 Korean I

Shared by Anonymous

2021-07-29

Professor: KIM Hee Sook

Summer semester Korean beginner class is not quite for beginners (as I have 0 knowledge of Korean before). Teacher tried hard to let us understand but can see that some of us are not able to catch up with it (she put too much time on the easy things and then the difficult ones she rushed so fast...). Can see around 6-8 of our classmates have basic knowledge. Seems that all teachers assumes that we can learn everything just the day we were taught as the time is really not enough to pack that much teaching materials together, and it is a 4 week class (got class every day and there is not much time for us to memorize/understand what actually happening...) The course is not welly organized and the study materials are disperse (things taught in powerpoint but quizzes from notes that we haven't gone through before..?) The workload is much much bigger than other language courses(just my experience such as French). Can learn something but the experience of the first summer semester is just like an unexpected nightmare for me(despair + tiring). Advice: think twice before you reg this class especially in summer semester:) need to be hardworking to catch up smoothly. Might be less harsh in normal semester;)

CCCH9007 China in the Global Economy

Shared by Anonymous

Professor: Dr. Jing Li

Teaching is about average. Alot of economic terms are introduced, so lessons can be quite confusing if you're not from an economics background. Have to do quite some readings on your own. The participation thing gets pretty damn annoying sometimes, where everyone asks and answers questions just to get marks.

MATH1851 Calculus And Ordinary Differential Equations

Shared by Anonymous

2021-07-26

Professor: Prof. Y.K. Lau, Prof. K.W. Chow

Part 1 and 2 lectures with Prof Lau and Prof Chow were a nightmare; lectures were very dull and I had a difficult time understanding their speech. Consider skipping them altogether but study the lecture notes. On the other hand, tutorials were lifesaving. Both tutors are amazing at teaching, but unfortunately tutorials are only 1 hour a week they tend to skip some small parts on the lecture notes so please beware. But overall, it's a rather unsatisfying course.

Dr TSAO is very knowledgeable in public policies, political systems and government styles of various countries. His teaching and analysis regarding the Greater China were interesting and inspiring. He also loved to interact with us and encouraged us to be objective and open minded to different policies. In gist, this course was effective for students to understand the pros and cons of different public policies in global context.

Prof. Tsao is very knowledgeable on policy issues of different countries / regions that we had discussed in the classes. In particular, his rich experience on various policy issues in China had deepened my understanding of them. He was well prepared for each class and shared with us lots of his insights and analysis on different policy issues. He also gave us many useful advices to improve our group presentation and individual research papers. In short, I really enjoyed Prof. Tsao's classes.

Solution to tutorial questions will not be publicized! Make sure you jot notes while other peers are sharing their thoughts! Very hard to get good grades even for a good piece of writing he shared with us. C-range grades would be given if mistakes were found. You may send an outline to him before submission of RJ and TP to avoid such mistakes. By the way, the arrangement of RJ is a bit strange. You could only do reflection for the first three texts. Be attentive during those lessons!

ELTU1002 English Communication for University Studies

Shared by Anonymous

2021-06-12

Professor: Mr Matthew Knowles

The lecturer is passionate in teaching, although he seldom asked students questions. He replied students' questions related to English writing and speaking. He mainly used the materials from the textbook that is prepared by the ELTU. His grading is ok (lenient) - easy to get high marks if requirement is fulfilled (although the requirement of writing is a bit difficult to achieve for students who barely attain Level 5 in HKDSE English Language). To get good grades (A- or above), make sure you fulfill the majority of requirement in oral presentation as it is the easiest assessment in this course!

Professor: Dr. FU, Rao

Professor is a Chinese whose accent might not be accepted by the majority of students (but I can accept it). She made her own notes, but they were just a simplified version of textbook. To have an adequate understanding of concepts and drilling, better get the recommended textbook. She merely shares how to apply economic concepts in the real-word phenomenon. However, she often shares some difficult questions which were appeared in her exams. Good grades could be attained by listening to her lectures, reviewing homework questions and even finishing 'QuickMC' in the textbook.

The pace of teaching is too fast for beginners. Moreover, his lessons were aided with teaching PowerPoints provided by the textbook publisher, which means he just spoke every single word from the textbook. However, his teaching was quite comprehensive - detailly explains every process for a lot of times. Homework and exams are not difficult for those who actively listen to him.
