Halloween is one of the most special and important events that a lot of people are looking forward to, especially the children. It is a happy day of “Trick or Treat” for the young children and it is the time to dress up in  their own costumes.

For ES2, students practiced spoken Chinese on the following topics:

Numbers、Greetings、Dates、Age、Telephone Numbers and Self-introduction.

Almost all the students of ES2, they are dressed up as a specific character that they want to be on Halloween Day.

The children not only practice their spoken Chinese skills, but also enjoy the day of “Happy Halloween” !

Kids, Have fun in Halloween!

To kids, Halloween is one of the most anticipated holiday in a year, they like to dress up and look forward to get the most candies in Halloween.

During Halloween day in CISM, our ES3 Mandarin class reviewed some words of “生病” , recalled some words of body, and then watched a video —Body song. Most students can recall the words, and do their worksheets correctly. After that, teacher encourage every student to say some words about this lesson we mentioned, so that they can get white rabbit candies (大白兔奶糖) from Liu laoshi. Some of the kids told me that they know how to say the name of this candy in Chinese, and they all like white rabbit so much.

Kids , enjoying your candies in Halloween !
