    Hi there, also think you should consider taking this video down. I think the way she is speaking to her Korean students is extremely inappropriate. Love your site! just don’t think this video is a good example of your values.

      Hi jcook, I’m sorry this comes across as offensive–Cynthia’s apprentice actually didn’t speak English when this was filmed so the comment ‘she doesn’t speak English’ was indicating why her apprentice wasn’t understanding the cue. I’ve been in the same situation myself and ended up using with the wrong language as well. I know Cynthia was simply doing her best to communicate to both the camera and her student in the moment and has many Korean apprentices who study with her. We’re going to edit out the comment but wanted to give a little context :). Thank you for sharing your experience, it’s appreciated.

    I am not sure this video should be included on your site. Cynthia telling her student she must not speak English because she does something wrong? Speaking Spanish at a Korean? This is a very cultural insensitive video, because take it down.

  3. super amazing Cynthia Lochard :)!
