Well begin is half done !

New school year! I am so glad to see all kids in our ES3 !

This is a good begining that most students can recollect what we learnaned last semester, such as “国家、语言”,“学习科目”,“打电话”, and they also can make dailogues to disguss their coutries, languages, and subjects fluently. It’s good news that kids’ oracy is okay,  we must keep going!  This semester we will give priority to Chinese tones , characters ,  and writing.

This is our group photo. Wish kids enjoy Chinese language in ES3 family!
