This program is educational. Despite the immense entertainment that comes with the class, it is even more abundant in productivity.

I enjoyed the way you taught us because it was fun to learn. I just wish I could stay longer.

I had no idea that I would cure my shyness but also have lots of fun in Think and Speak Up! I learned how to make an impressive speech. I also learned how to read peoples body and eye language. We learned the proper way to stand and show gestures. I feel that I have improved a lot, but also helped me in school and places outside of the Think and Speak Up class. Ms. Lisa teaches everything we need to know about speech in the most fun way possible.

I learned many vital things in this class. Many of the things I learned are essential for the future and will prepare Chinese Americans for the mainstream community. Every activity in this class is interactive and exciting. Each activity is different and unique from each other. Even though the classes provide new concepts each time, Ms. Lisa always review the concepts past learned. The class is extremely different from other classes offered by DMCLS. This class is fun and interactive, but you also learn many things. Ms. Lisa is the best teacher ever. She thinks up unique activities each week and is entertaining. You will never be bored in her class. It is IMPOSSIBLE! Through Ms. Lisa’s meticulous teaching and efforts, I have seen my classmates and myself improve drastically. I will most certainly recommend this class to everyone I know.
