== For All of You including Gr. 7s if you have not watched it yet==

  • Re-watch those two-story videos about Easter which have posted on the Intermediate Mandarin Website. Here is the link as below: https://sfxschool.ca/IMandarin/

Please listen carefully and figure out how to say the following 5+1 sentences in Chinese. We have discussed and practiced all of them during the class time on Zoom. I am going to ask you guys again on Friday as a bonus for your class performance. Please discuss these 6 questions with your classmates if necessary.

  1. Happy Easter-
  2. The Last Supper-
  3. Son of God (the Father)-
  4. He died on the Cross-
  5. The angel said: Don’t be afraid-
  6. Jesus has risen-

In addition, I would like to thank those parents who sent emails in advance to inform me that your children will be absent due to an unavoidable reason on a scheduled day. I must receive it even though I may not have enough time to reply before Mandarin class. Absolutely I can feel and see your care and respect for me and the class as well.

Lastly, here is another friendly reminder to the parents. I totally understand that many of you might need to work from home. However, in order to maintain your child learning quality and help them to focus, we need your cooperation and attention to leave your child in a quiet space/room for the online class. Hence, your talking content will not be heard during our Zoom meeting, and the students will not be interrupted or distracted. Your understanding and support will be great appreciated.
