Attending the UVa 2016 STARTALK has been a valuable experience for me this year. This program had an excellent staff consisting of Dr. Tseng, Henny Laoshi, Li Laoshi and Zhao Loashi. I have learned a lot from these professional and experienced instructors. I have also gained much insight by sharing with each of the teachers that participated in the program this year. Not only did I gain something for professional development, but I along with perhaps all teachers gained relationships that encouraged good will and mutual understanding. We are all teachers, and we all used what we know to help each other. Moreover, this program was well planned. I felt that the schedule consisting of the two week online training and three week onsite training was well suited for our needs. I know I can apply what I have learned to my teaching. I was glad to be a part of the UVa STARTALK 2016 and would recommend it to Chinese teaching colleagues in thefuture.
