“Fantastic experience! a very good promotion in language learning. I am so pleased to be here and have seen the different approaches in learning...”
“Great level of enthusiasm communicated to more potential students; really enjoyed it…”
“The participants all clearly had a passion for understanding different cultures that came across well in the videos.”
“I feel more motivated and encouraged to continue learning Mandarin and it was great to see how the students at Warwick displayed what they knew about the culture and language.”
“The video competition was a good initiative and brought about some fun group working and development of other skills not normally used such as video editing … I take away from this a positive and creative experience.”
"Making a video to transmit the beauty of the language that you are studying make you realize even more the reasons why you chose it."
