Pretty big assumption from your teacher to say nobody would study. There are people who never study, but everyone should be given a chance to succeed and try his/her best.

I think #12 meant that Chinese is also a culture, not just a language. So it could have been a class on Chinese culture. That said, usually only language classes are referred to that way- if it were a Chinese Culture or Chinese History class, it probably would have been referred to as such.

#12, the person did not specify if it was a language class or not. While I am aware that there are two types of Chinese language, Cantonese and Mandarin, the former is not generally taught in schools or universities. As a result, many schools actually do name their courses in Mandarin "Chinese" and in American culture saying "in Chinese" is a perfectly acceptable phrase to signify "in the Chinese language" which, again, usually refers to Mandarin.

You can only study so much in a day, and chances are what you study will have poor retention. Especially if it was a class ongoing from Fall of 2015 and a commulative test.

Correct, you can only study so much in a day -- but if you never study until you know there's going to be a test, you won't learn or retain as much, as you just noted. My high-school Spanish teacher made clear that there would be pop quizzes, and that we were responsible for learning the material we covered in class and would need to know it for the pop quizzes. We studied. People who had her remembered their Spanish better and longer than people who had the school's other Spanish teachers.
