"-reviewed previous lessons -taught him animal vocabulary -taught him weather/season vocabulary -worked on pronunciation and memorization Very impressive ability on memorizing Chinese. He doesn't have any accent at all."
"With student #1, we went back and reviewed person pronouns like I, you, he, she, it, my, your(s), his/hers/its and basic actions "walk, sleep, eat, fly, sit..." and asked and answered questions of color. With student #1 and student #2, we first reviewed the most used quantifiers in Chinese by matching the characters to its pinyin to the objects that are used with. Then we learned the song "I am a small small bird" and sang the chorus of it. Finally since they brought up about being interested in learning Halloween-related terms, we started going over some common objects related to Halloween."
"The student and I had a whole review of all the materials we've covered so far. we deconstructed some question and answer to detail, revisited some conversation topics, played some number games. while reviewing the old, I inserted a few new materials at the same time. I also analyzed the grammar of Chinese to answer is just to repeat the question the same way but change only one word, which is the answer."
"During this session, we reviewed daily routine activities + hobbies/sports in preparation for the student's in-school test. We discussed sentence structures, conversations, and verbs. She was asked to describe her daily activity in Chinese and she did extremely well. Because the student sent me her last year's final exam, I was able to incorporate the final exam forms into our session quizzes. We also went over her Mandarin test briefly. The student's grade improved significantly, and I am very proud of her."
"The student and I did drills with measure words and explaining what shows will be on each channel for her exam tomorrow. We also worked on the next chapter that her class will be focusing on (comparisons, descriptive complements, and adjectives)"
"We reviewed the student's food words. He seemed a bit unsure, but he was nonetheless able to name most of the items. However, during our flashcard game, he needed more help with the question structures we were practicing (Where are you from?, What is your name?, etc.). Extra review on a regular basis will help some of the phrases stick. Going forward, we will focus mostly on ordering food and basic grammatical concepts (like question words)."
