Testimonial received May 2020

Student: Zhang Chen ID SCL15118

Course: International business strategy with marketing and project management

School: University college TKK Xiamen China

Q1. What program are you enrolled in?
  • Yeah, I have participated in the operation of many shops near the school, pet shops, restaurants, musical instrument stores, and online self-media shooting.

Q2. What is your age?

  • 22. This is my last year in college.

Q3. What business experience /knowledge did you have before joining this course?

  • Some very basic business knowledge, such as negotiating prices with suppliers, negotiating products with customers, rearranging the storefront, helping the store and student organizations establish a win-win cooperation.

Q4. What do you think about my business course? Did it meet your expectations? If not, why?

  • At the beginning, I felt that this course was mainly based on theory and did not pay much attention, but more and more case studies. After I read it, I learned about many of the world ’s most famous companies and how they operate , What problems were encountered and how to solve them.Now if I encounter this kind of problem in job search, I believe I can persuade the interviewer.

Q5. What did you expect from this course?

  • First of all, I definitely hope that I can pass. This is my last course. If not, I will be very sad. Secondly, I hope to learn more business treatment methods. Simply knowing these theories does not make me stronger. Knowing how to deal with the problems that arise will give me an advantage over others.

Q6. What makes Anthony Eric Antonios Papadimitriou stand out as a business teacher?

  • I’m not very sure. Perhaps business teachers have higher requirements for people and require a lot of work experience and teaching level.

Q7. Do you prefer online video training, or classroom learning on campus? Why?

  • For me, efficient learning is what I like. Online teaching allows me to quickly reach the teaching position I want, and I can think again and again and find some problems on the Internet at any time.

Q8. Can you recommend this business course to another student, why, why not ?

  • If he wants to learn something real, not theory, I would recommend it.

Q9. What do you think about the material I provide?

  • First, very, very detailed, so detailed that I can’t finish it all. Second, very real, I can see from the news that similar cases occur in the current world.

Q10. Anything else you would like to say about me or this course?

  • Seriously, this course is really not suitable for most English majors, most people are not really involved in some business activities. But if I am a business major student, I will be very happy. This course trains us like a famous business school student. This is undoubtedly a high level and very difficult teaching.

I remember in your teaching quality questionnaire, there was a question: Why did you choose this course? I will now answer you seriously. I actually first met you at last semester . Once when I arrived in the classroom early , I saw you sorting out your books and some tools.  You took the initiative to talk to me and another classmate, I also asked you how you feel here, you are very enthusiastic to answer me. At that time, you made a deep impression on me , I think this is really a passionate and interesting teacher. So when I was choosing a course , I chose yours. I thought you were a special teacher from the beginning.

When I saw the result of the mid-term exam, I was shocked. It must have been the worst time for me. I stayed up all night thinking for a long time and decided to write an email to you to tell you what thoughts I had in my heart. I wrote a long long email to you , and I really hope you can help me to change this terrible situation.

Happily, I received your email soon, you told me that you would read it and told me not to worry. And you comforted me in the first time. Your email calmed me down and I began to think seriously about my own problems. I received another email from you which deeply touched me. You read my speech carefully and you wrote notes on it. You guided me step by step how to do it and how to write a good speech .You took my feedback so seriously , you did everything you could to help me ,and you didn’t give up on me because of my poor presentation .Your notes on the whole speech prove that you are an extremely patient and conscientious teacher. And you encouraged me not to give up ,you said you believed I would make progress.

I will never give up because of your encouragement and help. So you not only taught me about public speaking , but you also taught me how to overcome hardships and make progress , and your help made a huge difference to me . Thank you very much , I will never give up❗ Finally ,  I wanna say : You are one of the best teacher in my heart ,I will never forget your help and encouragement❗

Dear Mr. Antonios

I’ve read your feedback carefully. Thanks for your patience, your encouragement and guidance. You had point out some mistakes I have made and given me some useful tips, such as how to create credibility and how to generate attention and interest for my audience.  I’ll take notice of it, and try my best to improve on that. And then I‘ll listen to your class more carefully and spend a lot of time to practice the art of speaking with my partner. Thanks again, you are really really responsible, and do well in teaching us this public speaking class. I do hope this semester can continue with classroom training as soon as possible, so we can talk face to face in class, that will be very nice.

Have a nice day!

Your student,

Celia He

Hi, my name is Tran Nam Anh and I’m a graphic designer from Vietnam. I met Anthony about nearly 2 years ago through a recommendation. He changed my mind and he made me a better person, much better than I could ever imagine was possible. With his enthusiasm, knowledge and his positive energy he motivated me to achieve my dreams. I see myself as an ordinary person, I just go to work every day and I am thinking about how to become a man and to know how to do it and what to do in my life. By meeting Anthony Eric* (Antonios Papadimitriou), I came out from my safety zone, I decided to take massive actions and study more, and I now have a great job in a big company named Spring production. Besides this work, I study on the Masters’ program of applied arts and I will finish the program early next year. I can recommend Anthony Eric to any future student and employer. Contact me if you have more questions.

/ Tran Nam Anh, 2019, Saigon.

This is my first time to taken foreign classes, I am very glad to meet Anthony Eric*, he taught me a lot in oral English, I was nervous at first, with a lack of confidence, he encouraged me and praised me, and he was always patient with me. He is a professional teacher, although my classes are over, I will remember this valuable experience forever.

-Yang tingting (Grace). English student, Cabin crew, Shandong Airlines, 2019

I think Anthony Eric’s* classes are helpful.He always attaches adequate importance to the interactions and collaborations with students and applies himself to demonstrating the knowledge more clearly using some well- detailed notes which impressed me deeply since the dedicated spirit is so admirable.

student reference

Above picture is a reference from an undergraduate student at the National University of Vietnam, department IEI, concerning the module: “public speaking” which was managed by university lecturer Anthony Eric*, 2018

I got career advice and interviewing tips by Anthony Eric*. He offers a lot of valuable advice because of his long and diverse history in business. It motivated me to think in new ways that I did not consider before. I have also joined his English classes and I like them a lot. He is not only teaching plain English but he includes a lot of practical scenarios from the business world with real life exercises that give me much more than just an English class. You should definitely try his training courses.

-Liu Yanjie (Dena). English student, Cabin crew, Shandong Airlines, 2019

I like 2 teachers where I study right now, and Anthony Eric* is one of them. His classes are just so different and he is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher. It is obvious he has 14 years experience from a variety of industries and positions world-wide. I can highly recommend him.

-Rain (Wang Lei), English student, Trade Manager, Xinhanghai, Xiamen, China, 2019

As your old student, I want to thank you for teaching me how to become a more fluent speaker. I was very nervous when speaking in front of people. After studying public speaking with Mr Anthony Eric*. I learned how to create a speech about many topics (society, health, etc), and I learned how to reduce anxiety and be more confident. I learned one of the most important things when giving a speech which is: “eye contact” and interaction with audience, which help people to concentrate more on my speech. Now I can do presentation in front of the class without being nervous. Thank you so much Mr Anthony Eric*.

Best regards,
Lin Da Nguyen Bao, undergraduate student, IEI National University, Vietnam, 2018

It was great to meet you Anthony Eric, and you are a creative and patient teacher. The first time I was in your class, I felt it was very different from other teachers’ classes. You brought the business world to the classroom and your well-planned tutorials gave us a chance to improve our English skills and soft skills useful for future careers.

-Jenny Chang, English student, Xiamen, China, 2019

I like Anthony Eric’s classes. They are interactive and they cover plenty of collaborative, creative and communicative activities. I learn a lot in his classes; not only English but also topics from the business world with soft skills training.

-Ellen Xu, English student, Xiamen, China, 2019

When I joined Anthony Eric’s English classes I saw a very different teacher on the first day. He clearly knows what each student needs to succeed privately as well as in business. With his MBA (UK) and engineering background and with 14 years in business he gives much more than just an English class. I can highly recommend business and communication training provided by Anthony Eric.

-Matthew, Sales Manager, Communication and English student, ABB, China, 2018

I love Anthony Eric’s classes. His teaching is very professional and it comes with a lot of business and presentation skills. Many students who are managers enjoy his classes very much. Comparing with other teachers, the students I spoke with prefer to study with Anthony Eric.

-Ms Summer, English student, Xiamen, China, 2018

I am glad to have met Anthony Eric*, he is really a professional teacher. I have attended his upper level English & Business classes, and I really learned a lot including essential business presentation skills. It is worth to try Anthony’s classes! Looking forward to meeting him again.
