Wonderful

This is the most funny class I've ever seen! Hilarious and Educational at the same time! Incisive but objective!

This is what passes for academics at VTech?

I live in Japan, and figured I might learn a little more something about where I live. Instead, I get badly dressed, mugging clown yo-yoing back and forth in front of a fixed video camera. The racist "Japanese" mugging and put-on sing-song accent didn't make it any better: it made me wonder if he did the Africa segments in blackface, just to be consistent.

Content-wise, this is one of the first times I've seen what's supposed to be a college lecture and thought to myself, "You know, *I* could do better." Trust me, it's pretty bad when I can make that statement. Shallow stuff, and for God's sake, learn to pronounce the name of Japan's main northern island, Hokkaido: I've never heard it mangled in quite the way this guy does it.

Awesome!

This teacher is great! Able to bridge the gaps of knowledge that a lot of people (myself included) had in our understanding of the world. I love how enthusiestic he is. Really makes for a very entertaining educational experience without the boring confines of a traditional lecture :) You Rock...keep it going. Bought your book too :)
