Today I continued to teach students the sentences patterns on body parts in Chinese. For the last two months, students have learned more than 50 vocabularies (recognize, listen, speak and write) and sentences patterns on greetings, self-introduction, age, and body parts.

They learned some knowledge on Chinese language (e.g. pinyin, four tones, the structure of Chinese characters, etc.) and cultural background (the capital city of China, how to name your child in Chinese, the Great Wall in China, the lion dance, and the origin of dragon. etc.). They also learned to sing several Chinese children songs and rhymes.

That is a fruitful study of Chinese language for two months!

In the later class before the winter recess, I am going to go over all the knowledge by playing vocabulary games and group activities. And I plan to teach students to chant a Chinese ancient poem for the coming of Chinese lunar new year.

The followings are the vocabulary for Lesson Six.

    Wow Lina, what an awesome study. You are doing such a fantastic job! I’m wondering through why there are two characters for short? How do you know which one to use?
