November 4, 2009 was our last day of Mandarin class. That picture above was taken right after our group's presentation. The presentation was a part of our final exam. It served as our speaking exercise.
I'm so thankful for the experience. I had a great time learning the language. Wu laoshi and Zhou laoshi are great teachers. They never get tired answering our questions. They are also very patient specially during reading and listening exercises. They are very encouraging and supportive too. My classmates are also great. Our class is lively (almost all the time). I said "almost" because there were also times when we feel "information overload". Everyone is helping one another.
I'm a beginner and still have a long, long way to go. Someday, I would like to be able to update my blog using Mandarin. (By the way, I'm also interested in the Japanese and Korean languages.)
