Dear Professor Martin,
I would like to take the opportunity to express my appreciation for your humorous and attractive way of teaching. All the information contained in your lectures is comprehensive and practical. To learn more actively, please allow me to outline some of my opinions on your lectures.
Firstly, I do hope you can insert a short "intermission" through the lecture and let us have a short discussion. It is helpful for us to avoid decline of attention and catch up with your lecture. At the same time, it takes the pressure off you as the instructor.
Secondly, it is advisable that you increase student activities or learning tasks during your lecture so as to promote student engagement.
Thirdly, I hope you will be able to just base your lectures on the most important materials and ask the students to search for the less important information for themselves outside of class.
At last, I’d like to express my heartfelt thanks and highest respect to you for your hardwork and wish to have an opportunity to communicate with you face to face.
Yours sincerely, Li Hu
