Yan Shen

She is very kind and helpful, and the class itself is very easy. There are a lot of quizzes and tests, but if you keep up with the (pretty slow) pace, they're cake. No surprises, she tells you exactly what's going to be on them. She wants you to do well. If you're interested in Mandarin, don't hesitate to try her class!

Yan Shen is an extremely friendly and talented Chinese teacher. She is absolutely great, and I learnt a lot being in her class. Her lectures are very well organized and she picks up the pace as the term goes on. Overall, she is a fantastic professor and you should definitely take her class. She is also very understanding and does not mind giving extensions - always a plus!
