FAQ - Dashboard
The student resume is used for the student to track their learning progress. Student resume is just what it sounds like. It keeps record of the learning progress you care about like:
- Your learning goals
- Your language level
- Learning evaluations on pronunciation, speaking and listening
- Course progress
- Lessons and Topic classes completed
Everyone likes the satisfaction of completing something in full. In your resume you can see the number of lessons you have completed in the course versus the number of lessons that remain.
For example: Course B1 has 21 lessons. If you complete 4 of these lessons then your resume will show Course B1 4/21 Complete.
If you are using a package plan, our system will automatically track what lesson you have just completed so you can reference in your resume.
Your language level is determined after the first trial class. The language levels correspond to our courses Beginner (B1 & B2), Intermediate (I1 & I2) and Advanced (A1 & A2). If you are a level I1 learner then it is recommended to start with the I1 course. The Language Level is updated after the completion of the Overview at the end of each Course.
For Example: If you are I1 and you complete the I1 Overview, then you would be updated to a Level I2.
The student resume is updated every time:
- A student takes a lesson in a course.
- When credits, courses, or package are added.
The learning evaluations are based on three metrics:
These metrics are updated after every Supplement. The Supplements come after every 4 to 6 lessons and serve as reviews for that section of lessons. This way you get a regular review of your learning metrics.
You can view your notes by going to the Dashboard and select the “My Resume” section and then select the “Notes” tab in “My Resume”
Your notes are for you to review and use to help improve your Chinese language abilities.
The tutors will also review your notes before each tutor session to ensure you are receiving personalized teaching that focuses on improving your weakness and highlighting your strengths.
Your notes are a short overview that the tutor will write up after every lesson or class. It contains information about what you learned in the session and an assessment of what you learned and what you need to work on.
