YCT 考试 is coming

March 18 is our YCT test this school year, it is an important test, so our grade 4-5 advanced students spend 2 classes a week to review it. In YCT4 there are some questions without pinyin, so it’s hard to read it, students must know at least 600 words.

There are some websites to help you to review it at home.

This year we have 5 students attend YCT 4 test, I hope all of them can pass the exam! Cheer up! Keep going!
