Chinese Class Newsletter April


Dear Parents and Guardians,

Nihao!你好!

Hope all is well with you and your family and it is so exciting to see students today and I look forward to seeing more later this week! Here are some updates regarding the plannings after the April break:

Grade 7 - Before the April break students completed the Nihao 1 lesson 10 and had tests on listening, speaking and reading; the tests grades will be available in students’ Schoology soon. This week 7th graders are working on 1.11 new vocabularies dealing with food & drink unit. They are learning to pronounce correctly, and will practice writing characters related to this unit. At the same time, we will also review what we had covered in the Nihao textbook 1 and let students ask and answer questions with fluency. In terms of culture, students will be comparing food and drink in different countries.

Grade 8 - Before the April break students completed the Nihao 2 lesson 8 and had tests on listening, speaking and reading; the tests grades will be available in students’ Schoology soon. Students are starting a substantial amount of 2.9 new vocabularies with reading materials and will learn how to put them to use. We will include narrating how to describe weather for a week in different countries and students will practice how to ask and answer weather related questions in the target language. Cultural topics include comparing the weather in different countries.

I appreciate your continued support in encouraging your child to practice and to use the language whenever possible. All the vocabulary in each unit can be found in Quizlet, students are suggested to work on Quizlet 5-10 minutes each day. I look forward to working with you and your child this year.

Respectfully,

Yuan Meng
