The overall structure is fine. But it would be better if the answers and, if any, explanation for quiz are available.

interesting course. Although I fail to see the function or use this has unless I wanted to write a Chinese opera! It was in Mandarin so I had to use subtitles. I still learned a lot about Chinese culture.
