Practice makes perfect

ES2 Mandarin class students welcomed the new school year with some warm-up exercises in all Chinese language skills, i.e. listening, speaking, reading, and writing.  They were able to review and refresh on the basic skills they have learned while building-up on wherever they finished in last year.

The challenge this month is to be able to read any combination of pinyin and tones accurately.  We are confident that we can pronounce any pinyin combination given to us after this month.

Here is a copy of the pinyin chart.

Hoping for a fun and productive school year!
