Tufts University: Mingquan Wang - Chinese - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Mingquan Wang | CHNS004 - INTERMEDIATE CHINESE | Chinese2005-05-11

Review:
I've taken many classes with him, from Chinese one to four and I have loved him all the way through. He is amazing. He explains grammar so well and always makes himself as available as possible to you. He's also very funny in a cute old asian uncle sort of way and he is very interested in student's learning. He is so nice and gives you so much leway, deadlines are always not a big deal if you have a good excuse or just explain your situation to him. I definitely took advantage of this but felt bad about it, but he's so nice.

Workload:
Depends on how much you want to learn. You can get by just doing the minimal work so about 3 hours max of work a week but to really get in your learning you should be studying like 6-7 hours a week. Tests for every two lessons, orals, the end of the year performance (which can be fun, depending on how you write your script), homework for each lesson. Not too much work though.

Mingquan Wang | CHNS001 - ELEMENTARY CHINESE | Chinese2005-04-12

Review:
Very good professor. He is kind, helpful, patient and good-humored. He is always willing to answer questions and see students after class. He is also a very available teacher. Clear and fair, he can also be very lenient.

Workload:
Chinese 1 is rather easy as long as you learn the characters. For a language class the work load isn't very large. A test every 5 chapters which really serve as a review for you. Also short straightforward homework assignments for every chapter, but they are not graded. It's for your own good really.

Just don't leave learning the characters till the day of the test.

Mingquan Wang | CHNS002 - ELEMENTARY CHINESE II | Chinese2005-04-12

Review:
I really like this professor. He is sweet and understanding, clear and straightforward. He enjoys teaching and pays attention to every student. Very helpful after classes and always willing to stay behind if you need to talk. Plenty of time to give you.

Workload:
Chinese 2 is much more work than Chinese 1. The character list gets longer, memorization is essential, so don't get behind. There is a review test every two chapters or so, which is very helpful in making you keep up. Homework assignments are due for every chapter (one chapter per week about), but are very short. Small dictations every now and then. Basically small things spread out all over so that you never feel like there is a lot of work.
