Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, student #1 and I reviewed the vocab words again. He needs to review them every day and practice writing the characters. Student #2 knows all his vocab words, and he needs to practice writing a few of them and know them before the quiz. Student #2 and I read four dialogues about travel and then had a great discussion."
"We covered profession/work/location of work place and family topics and vocabulary words. Student is able to identify/be able to translate sentences based on the structure and key words, but is struggling with some pronunciations such as New York (Niu Yue). I tried to conduct simple conversations with her using past/current topics, and she was able to converse back and forth. She will continue to practice using the exercise recording from the book."
"Today we went over a few exercises for practicing tones and pronunciation. From now on, we will be reviewing a few of these each session. The student then learned the core/supplemental vocabulary for lesson 5, which was on introductions, before we went over the dialogue and practice questions within the chapter. She's doing a great job at distinguishing the four tones, and her spoken Chinese has improved. For homework, she will write out some of the exercises and practice the new vocabulary from lesson 5."
