I really enjoyed doing the Mandarin lesson. It was valueable to experience a lesson from the pint of view of the student. I think it is better to do this course after completing the Methodology unit, in which case, being able to lesson plan boosted my confidence. Meeting tutors and other learners was nice after spending a few months just working with a computer screen. It also meant that ideas and expereinces could be exchanged with other learners. The location was convenient and easy to find and get to.
