"We practiced Chinese characters and topic speaking today. We also studied some Chinese geography and related Chinese expressions. The student did very well."
"We reviewed the words and phrases we talked about in the previous session. Then, we practiced conversation by talking about food. On Chinese culture, we discussed "gift giving" regarding business etiquette."
"Concepts I covered specifically were numbers 1 through 10 and colors. Her attitude is excited to color numbers or activities. Strategies would be using more connect the dots number activities or matching up. Extra practice with flashcards and books."
"We focused on chapter 9 in the student's school book on Si clauses, tenses concordance: present, imperfect, past subjunctive, past perfect subjunctive, future, conditional. New vocab to be learnt: nouns and verbs. Review of already prepared homework."
"Today we covered specific time (minutes) and money in Chapter 2. We spent the last 30 minutes covering basic conjugation of key verbs. For next week Tuesday, we'll do possessives, "mo", and negative statements from Chapter 2 (grammar points 4-6). The student is also studying kanji on his own with the book, and will send me updates on his progress so I can start to use those."
