For the 8th graders in the middle school, it is not necessary for them to learn Chinese. Because they do have Chinese in the high school. But most of them still focus on learning Chinese and studying hard every daily day. Some of them took very neatly notes to prepare the pop quiz or Chinese test. It is first time for them to explore a foreign language, especially for learning how to write the Chinese characters and make a difference between the five speaking tones. Most time they tell me “Ms. Liu, I am so confused, are you Ms. Six?” at that time, I am always happy and explaining the tones part. I am so proud of my kids how hard they study and how much they love Chinese class.
