Learn Chinese in China

LTL online school flexi classes review.

@zhouhaochen have you ever considered allowing students to listen in on a class without participating? What I mean is that some students may be willing to pay a small fee (lets say 4$/class) to listen in on a 1:1 class. This money could be split between the student actively studying in the class (to give him an incentive to let other students listen in on his private lesson) and the school. While I personally believe being actively involved in the class is of course superior, sometimes students might want to listen in to review material they have learned or to prestudy for a similar class.

@alantinthanks so much for the in depth review. I have learned a lot from it already. Also the comparison with other software I find very useful.

We are working on automizing all the zoom rooms this week and hopefully next (very latest the one after) all this will be automized and it will not be possible for mistakes like this to happen anymore. It will also save our teachers quite a bit of headache and extra work, which is great.

For material length, thanks a lot for the feedback. We will definitely take that into account as we develop the next set of teaching materials (Beijing and Taipei city versions) at the moment.

Great to have you with us and I hope Flexi Classes continues to be useful for you.

Its a nice idea, but in reality I think that would be quite difficult. Students usually dont like it when someone else listens in on them. Many people are more afraid to speak etc.

We really struggle to find some students to even allow us to record an example class or do an online interview. If anyone agrees it is after a lot of very careful and polite asking by us - if we just put someone else into their class watching them study, I dont think that would go down very well even if they got a bit lower price for it. If someone is concerned about money they probably would have booked a group class already anyways. For 1on1 students getting ahead as fast as possible is the main aim usually, not saving money.
