Harvard Summer School 2010:
Participants’ testimonials
“ I believe that among the wonderful
experiences gained in Harvard, part of
them would be the teaching and
learning process itself, which is
indeed different from the ones
obtained previously in Malaysia. The
essence lies in classes full with lively
discussions where students can
actively participate, be it in giving
opinions and criticism, or even asking
questions for understanding. ..”
