In this month of May, the students have studied a short Chinese poem related with mothers, they also make a mother’s card to praise their loving and caring mother.
After that, they have learned a letter written by a mom. It’s about the words in mom’s heart. They have completed doing various practice and worksheets.
Please be noticed that the topic evaluation will be postponed to Next Tuesday, May 24 due to noon dismissal and an earthquake drill on Friday, May 20. Hence, there will be more time for students to review and to study for the test. Please find attached, the notice and format including a few sample questions.
Here is the notice of the Mandarin test regarding the topic of Family.
We are going to focus on the Chinese address. Before, the students had learned the basic terms to address the actual family’s members such as 爸爸、媽媽、哥哥、姐姐、弟弟、妹妹和我 (dad, mom, brothers, sisters and I)。This year, they are learning how to address other relatives. The students are expected to have a clear concept and understanding first before working on an oral presentation for the next couple weeks. The students are going to integrate and apply what they have learned previously to introduce their family members’ birthday and favorite things and current residence, etc. Thanks for your attention.
All students have received the test notice and worked on the sample questions as a practice in Mandarin class today. They will need to review the “family tree map” and “key words” to get ready for the test.
