"Started out with Pinyin and everyday vocabs like previous lessons. He knows months in Chinese really well now. During this lesson, I taught him a few new vocabs and the rest of the Chinese is really just a review. I want to make sure he really understands the things I'm teaching him and I want him to perfect all the vocabs/conversations."
"For the student, we reviewed vocab words and watched 2 videos that his teacher shared. Then we read a dialogue, and worked on workbook pages. No homework was given. Then the student did Chinese calligraphy writing for about 20 minutes. We read 2 dialogues about shopping for clothes & exchanging shoes. Then we worked on more workbook pages. No homework was given."
"The student worked through a mixtures problem in front of me today, and was able to solve it will little difficulty, so his practice over this past week helped a lot. Afterwards, we read through and discussed relevant Chinese culture sections in his textbook (minorities and their autonomous regions). We also practiced some of the classroom expressions he learned in class."
"We first review counting numbers above thousand. Then we went over the dialogues from last lesson, practiced writing characters and the pronunciations. We also covered the Chinese currency and related vocabulary/expressions. The student was still struggling with some of the tones (first & fourth especially). But he showed progress with numbers and some basic expressions. I left him a list of vocabulary and conversation to study for the next lesson."
"The student learned how to ask "how to say" in Chinese and reviewed on animals. The other two students practiced making sentences with "why" "because" "how" "what time" "how much" "I can" "I know" "I am able to" "I will" and describing weather."
"The student was comfortable to fill in text after reviewing video clips and has very good listening comprehension. Her vocabulary is increasing and she is able to use it correctly in a sentence. I introduced several German idioms that can be used in various social situations and give her the confidence to express herself as a teen ."
