Dear parents and guardians,

你好 Ni hao!

These two months flew by and all students are working hard on improving their Chinese language skills!

In grade 7, we learned: introduction of China, Pinyin system, greetings, classroom languages, students' Chinese names, and numbers. We also did 1 quiz on the Pinyin system and will have another quiz soon for numbers. We are moving forward to learning about family members this month.

In grade 8, we reviewed what we have learned in the past two years in speaking and writing. Now we are learning the first lesson of Nihao book 2, which is about telling people's birthdays and dates in Chinese. We will have the listening quiz soon and also work on the speaking project with partners.

Quizlet links include all the vocabularies covered in class:

(all of the vocabularies in Nihao Book 1&2)


Please remind your child to check Schoology regularly. In-class assignments, homework, and grades are posted there. Your child should be able to show you their work.

Parent Conference

The parent conference sign-up links will be sent out by email soon, please make sure to set up a meeting since each teacher has limited availability on November 11th.

Thank you for your supports all the time! If you have further questions, you are always welcome to email me. My school email is ymeng@shrewsbury.k12.ma.us.

Best wishes,
Yuan Meng / Menglaoshi
