Reli not boring, quite fun and interactive. Swedish is quite similar to English, not difficult to learn!
Professor: Stefan Purwins
The atmosphere in class is very free and relaxing. Stefan is a very good teacher, will chat with you in class. Classes are interesting.
Professor: Dr. Lam
The lecturer and the tutors aren't killers and they are quite patient to answer questions.
Professor: Michael Wiggs
After turning to online teaching, the group speaking test is canceled and becomes an individual speaking test. The professor is easy going and friendly. The course is not that leng grade as many people got B range.
Professor: X.L. Tian

Hea dou PK
Professor: Prof. A.B. Djurišić
Interesting topic discussions, cool prof, nice tutors
Professor: Wang Aihe
Honestly, despite what others say about inspiring and what not (which I agree, it can be thought provoking), this course is VERY chur relative to other CCs. Weekly tutorials which you need to prepare for and in-class attendance is taken. Therefore, I chose to sleep in class because sometimes, despite the fact the lecturer is inspiring I suppose, is not always interesting. Reviewed alright amounts for final and got A-, but I honestly still feel a bit cheated for how much work this course had (even in-spite of sleeping in class), and I have a pretty decent background on Chinese history so expected better. Lesson is, pay attention, and don't sleep in class.
Professor: Ka-fu Wong
Ka-fu is one of the best lecturers at HKU, but he is also an asshole to students in class. Nevertheless, don't be afraid to ask him questions, he knows his stuff really well. If possible, also try to get a copy of his book (only some chapters are available on moodle, he does not publish the rest), as it details his thought process really well, and you will be an expert at how he thinks. I read it AFTER taking this course, and doing that made some of the things in the original course seem very obvious. Be careful and practice the past-papers well, especially the monopoly questions. The monopoly questions are always tricky but the answers are straight forward if you think smartly, which I didn't. Also, study the first two chapters (cost and benefit analysis+compar advantage) carefully, as they are very important to how Ka-fu thinks about econ and sets his questions. The grade curve is not as bad as some people say. I did terrible on mid-term final but still got B- so that says something. Try your best for his course, some of the stuff you learn can be kinda useful I guess (in terms of logical thinking).
Professor: Wat Kam-Pui, Gabrielle M. Jing
Dr. Wat is the best lecturer i've had at HKU, his knowledge is really insane, and he really will go in depth with you and explore the proof for each proposition. However, this means that the lectures will easily fall behind schedule which is bad. Nevertheless, you can learn A LOT and bring ur math/stat skills to the next level taking his course, so try your best and don't anger him. Speaking of which, he sends a lot of annoying emails (and he can send some encouraging ones sometimes too), and he is not the nicest guy, but I believe he means well with his emails and wants the students to do as best they can. In the end, the tests (and assignments) sett by Wat are f**ing hard. Wat Gor is super din when it comes to setting tests and his expectation is a bit too high for students and he seems unafraid of failing LOTS of students, so really do your best and you should be fine. The probability side he teaches is MUCH harder than the stat side taught by Gabrielle. Gabrielle's part is much easier no need to worry. You should focus on the probability side, since Wat gor puts a lot of big brain dnlm lan dou pk questions. Good course but taught by Wat means it can be kinda stressful.
Professor: Chan Yat-Ming
Dr. Chan is very good at explaining and lecture notes are very well constructed. On the other hand, his lectures do not go in depth relative to the test and finals - ala the classic teach easy test hard fok dou pk. The tests and final will be MUCH harder than the assignments (though some of the past test and exam questions are in the tutorials). To do well in the final exam, review the past papers and find the OBVIOUS patterns in the questions. The questions are set in a similar way for each exam - not exactly the same, but theres some similarities. Still challenging, but you can anticipate and prepare pretty well. The grade given is not too bad. Not the best given the difficulty, but not too bad either. Moreover, this course dosen't need too much problem solving skills (i.e. thinking). If you are good with algebra (can get somewhat challenging) and procedural systematic problem solving it should be no problem. Overall, Dr. Chan is a pretty jeng instructor.
Professor: Eulji Lee
The course content itself has no problem. But the teaching is far from satisfaction. The lecturer (eulji lee) seems to be unfamiliar with what she is going to teach, unable to explain herself with English and cause confusion to the students.
Professor: Dr. M.K. Yip
Test and exam are too easy. Half of the class get >80 in test. Need to be extremely careful to get A range.
Professor: Dr. May L Wong
important to attend lecture as she will explain the concept that is not shown on the power point
Professor: Dr. Sammy Fung
Sammy Fung was knowledgeable and the tutor Benson was quite helpful and funny. Also, the course include a non-compulsory site visit
Professor: Jeffrey Allen Saunders
The professor's voice is hard to hear. powerpoints are useful.
Professor: Koon Chun Alex
Heavy workload (make comics and newsletter) but bad grade. Hea tutor
they will crit ur model and ideas, can be harsh
Present A+ So easy, tutor so polite, so hea but boring
Professor: Travis kong
professor is very nice and kind, willing to chat with students about social issues and give inspiring responses to my questions. but tutor(charlotte) is not that nice and quite hea in teaching with lower level of english proficiency.
she tries her best to make the course interesting but to no avail
Professor: Dr Dirk Noel
Only take this class if you are genuinely interested in linguistics and English. Be prepared to study lots of different terms.
Professor: Dr Dirk Noël
Lecture notes are always uploaded after lecture, so you'll need to come in and discuss. Professor is eager to ask for responses from students so come prepared and do your readings. Only enroll if you are genuinely interested linguistics IN ENGLISH, or else you will find the assessments very tough and repetitive. Good luck and don't fail like I did. Peace.

lectures are super boring
Professor: nothing special
rubbish arrangement, the first 70% content is very very very easy, but next 30% become very difficult within 1-2 weeks. As an engineering student with gpa about 4 but without stat base, feel hard to learn, because they don't teach you detail, they just teach you the result and you won't understand. The quiz, report and presentation need you to use all the content they teach you. if you cannot fully understand that (didn't learn stat before), it will be hard to get an A range. But actually the course is quite hea except the last weeks. aim A don't pick, otherwise not bad.
The professor never read email, so don't send him an email. For me, the grade at the end turns out to be better than I expected.
Professor: Julian Chase
The content itself is already boring, so whatever.
seek help from god
ok la, very intriguing course, u will feel fun, just difficut and shit grade
just eat all the notes
Professor: Dr chu
the greatest course in HKU
Professor: Different topics with different professors eg Dr Marchetti Gina, Dr William WONG...
Tutor: Dr Lin SONG
Some topics are eye-catching like transgender, sex workers in Hong Kong. Dr Lin Song is a very good tutor and his tutorials are not boring.
