As the saying goes，”the early bird catches the warm.” If you want to do something successfully, make preparations earlier.
As our Lesson 7 “爱好（音乐）” come to an end, ES3 Mandarin class begins to prepare for the YCT test on the last school day of Feb. In our class, most of the students will take YCT level 2 OR level 3 exam in May. Fortunately, they are passionate about the challenge.
From the week, we will spend half an hour to review and memorize the vocabulary every Friday. The kids have already know their own YCT Level, and said they will try their best to pass the examination on May 9. Therefore, we have 2 months to prepare for the exam, and everyone wish all of us will pass it.
Good luck guys!
ES2-G4 & G5
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR. LET’S LEARN CHINESE LANGUAGE
In Grade 11 CHI B class, the class have learned about Health, Customs and Traditions.
It is during this time where the class discussed about individuals being health conscious, students going on a diet to look good, health benefits of certain food available in the market nowadays etc. It has been part of our discussion to understand the culture behind drinking tea, different ways on how to drink it and its brief history. As part of their cultural learning, I think it is only best for students to experience and enjoy the tradition of drinking tea.
During our review and discussion about the traditions of drinking tea around the world. Each student was given a cup of their flavored fruit tea to experience and understand the transformation of the traditional tea compared to a brand new variety of tea available in the market now.
By doing so, I believe that students were able to understand better the difference between the traditional freshly brewed tea and the millennial tea we buy from bobba tea stores.
Please comment below your answers.
This month we learned something about sickness, most of the stuents enjoyed this topic, especially when they know how to see a doctor in Chinese.
Besides,we recalled some words about body, and learned two characters– “痛”“疼”，kids already know the difference between them. When we contact the words about body with “痛”“疼”, it’s “眼睛疼/痛，头疼/痛，耳朵疼/痛，手疼，脚疼”.
Some of our Mandarin class is after PE class, so when some students told me “老师，我手疼！”“老师，我脚疼！”, I was happy!
