Thanks to this course for helping me understand how to communicate with different people at work. This is really important for me before entering a company as marketing assistant. 感谢这个课程让我知道了如何在工作中和不同的人进行沟通,这对于即将作为市场营销助理进入企业工作的我非常重要。
I like the style of this course. It is very interesting while teaching me the basic theory on communication. It is also good to help me improve my Chinese and to learn different culture. Some cases in the video are what I’ve experienced in life. 我很喜欢课程的形式风格,让我学习沟通基本理论的同时又不感到乏味。它还可以帮助我提升汉语能力以及了解不同文化的差异。老师讲到的一些案例正是我曾在生活中遇到过的。
