Course Updates on October 28, 2015

Mina-san. Konnichiwa! The grades for Japanese 2A, and 2AB have been updated.

I am enjoying the smell of pumpkins and spices of this time of the year. But wait! Where did our time go? It seems we just started the fall semester, but now we have only 4 weeks of course work left to do before the end of the semester. So let's take a moment to reflect....

Are you where you plan to be when you signed up with this course? Or did you lose interest and get behind? Now is the time to review your progress, and reset your goal and stride through to the finish line. There's still enough time to be successful.

Communicating with me with your concerns is very important for your success. Don't wait until the last minutes to seek for help. Remember, I am just a click away.
