Prof. Yang opened the session by sharing a brief background of herself and the university where she works. Graduated from A UK university in English, she said that unlike in Indonesia, many students in Taiwan are less motivated to improve their English. Therefore, She was pretty impressed with how serious and how determined many Indonesian learners were.

Having been involved in the Language in Use II – GLS class in a semester, she feels that Indonesian English learners are confident and are keen to take part in online discussions. And some of our students proved that even during the face to face session, they were just as active and determined to learn.
