Recent Albany Mandarin Chinese Tutoring Session Notes

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Zhan in Albany, NY
We first played "five chess," the student's gotten better and better at it! We then reviewed the "animal book," not only identifying the animals, but reading along with the text of description as well. After the reading session, we practiced writing dates and names then drew more cartoons on a whiteboard to practice writing and saying body parts and colors, as well as saying instructions in Chinese. The student loved drawing. Today's new vocab words were: horse and deer.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Chong in Albany, NY
We focused on writing and reading. We spent most of the time on reading previews for the student's next class. I helped her on time management between reading and writing. She read out loud to help with speaking and writing.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Elaine in Albany, NY
Student 1 and I continued to work on Chapter 3 in the workbook. The activities we did included writing Chinese characters to complete phrases on food/drinks/school supplies/colors/clothing, learning the names of colors in Chinese and coloring pictures, and finding Chinese words and phrases in a word search game. She did very well in the coloring section, and she was able to recognize nearly all the Chinese characters from memory. She also remembered the names of food and drinks in Chinese, but she needed to refresh her memory on school supplies and clothing. Next, Student 2 and I continued to work on painting Chinese characters for numbers 1-10. She is motivated and has a positive attitude. We reviewed the pronunciations of the numbers and painted them for the activity.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Shareen in Albany, NY
We had a great first lesson. The student and I worked on learning the four tones in Chinese. We began learning numbers and the number system. We then proceeded into basic conversation. We went over greetings and other simple phrases, as well. He has a natural ability for languages, and we're progressing at a great pace.
