Reading lots of books, She always rubs her eyes because of eyestrain. I am worried that she will be tired for learning so many subjects. However, she told she loves study which is one of her hobbys. 马布 is a wonder child. But she isn't conceited and arrogant about her intelligence at all. Instead, she is so cute and energetic. In today's Chinese Skype Class, her mum said to Mabou, "you are a baby, baby Mabou". Then they hugged each other tightly. Can you imagine that scene? I'm so lucky and proud of being Mabou's Chinese teacher. #78 Professor Tian (Tuesday, 31 May 2016 13:19) Quite a few students skipped today's Skype Chinese Class as it is Memorial Day in the States.So they took a break from their Skype Chinese Class to go travelling at this long weekend. #79 Professor Tian (Tuesday, 31 May 2016 15:17) I sat in Naveen's Skype Chinese Class today.

One of the reasons was that his connection was not very good, so the Skype Chinese Class was interrupted a few times. The other reason was Miss Huang , his teacher was not quite familair and confident in teaching this Skype Chinese Class. She needs to do more preparation for her next Skype Chinese Class. #81 张雪玲 (Tuesday, 31 May 2016 17:13) When I first saw Mabou in today's Skype Chinese Class, she was in the car on the way home after visiting her aunt. I asked whether they went to the restaurant, while Mabou told me SHE cooked the meal!! Yeah, herself! She shocked me again, totally. In today's Skype Chinese Class, we talked about transport and travel. So I showed her the picture of Tian'an Men Square and Guangzhou. Mabou said she wants to come to China but in a few years. I hope that she can speak Chinese fluently when she come to China. #82 楊淑閑 (Wednesday, 01 June 2016 02:18) Today is the first time I saw 彩虹 in Skype Chinese Class. She is a cute and beautiful girl.

Generally speaking,she is a lively girl. Really lively. I like her very much. But I'm sorry that we have no enough time to play games in Skype Chinese Class. #83 黄洁薇 (Wednesday, 01 June 2016 07:54) Today is Children's Day.

I emailed his mom to find out what happened and was surprised to know that his school bus was late and that's why . She even said it's quite often for school buses to arrive late in Bangalore. If he doesn't get online for his Skype Chinese Class next time, that's why. #87 Professor Tian (Thursday, 02 June 2016 10:16) Vicky told me in today's Skype Chinese Class that she is a fan of Infinite.

Finnally I know I should pay more attention to the personality of the student, and more importantly, learn how to explain something in simple way is what I should try.I may do better in next Skype Chinese Class. #90 赵燕红 (Tuesday, 07 June 2016 02:03) 白朗，a smart girl.

The transliteration “Hong Kong” did not come from the Cantonese pronunciation (a common misunderstanding). This is for sure when we take our Skype Chinese classes.The accurate Cantonese transliteration (based on the Canton/Guangzhou dialect) should be something like “Heung Kong” or “Heung Gong”. As a matter of fact, Cantonese was not even so widely used in Hong Kong as it is today a few decades ago (after the Hong Kong 1967 leftist riots, Cantonese began to gain the more or less official status under the British colonial administration). Some say “Hong Kong” was based on the accent of the Chinese coastal-river people called 蜑民 (Tanka people) - who were not a distinct ethnic group but more like a environmentally- and culturally-segregated group. #243 Tian (Thursday, 22 June 2017 09:16) Skype Chinese classes question :Why do I need some time when reading Chinese characters to recognise the words? Honestly, I wouldn’t worry about how long it takes for you to recognize words, the fact that you can recognize them is important. Your speed of recognition will increase as you become more used to reading Chinese characters in your Skype Chinese classes. Think of when you were a child learning how to read English, you couldn’t read anywhere near as fast as you can read nowadays. The speed increased as you became familiar with the written language, sentence structure and a wider field of vocabulary. Don’t sweat it, all good things take time. As I mentioned, if you want to increase your reading speed, then the only thing for you to do is read more! One of things I do to help improve my reading is that I worked with tianchinesehome with some Skype Chinese Classes, which really helps. #244 Tian (Saturday, 24 June 2017 03:37) Skype Chinese Class question: Why do people call Chinese language "Mandarin "? Great question for our Skype Chinese class. Well , her is the history:Because this is a word originally from the Portuguese missionaries and businessmen that first got in touch with China (Ming Dynasty). It was derived from the Portuguese word “mandarim/mandarin” which specifically meant Chinese imperial officials. It was also used to refer to the more or less “standardized” dialect that these officials need to speak in order to smoothly work in the government.. #245 Tian (Saturday, 24 June 2017 03:41) Skype Chinese Class question continuesd:The Chinese counterpart of the word kept the essence of the term: 官话, which literally means “officials’ dialect/language”. Today, the official spoken dialect/language in China is called PuTongHua (“common dialect/language”), and the wide use of the term “Mandarin” is simply an old habit that dies hard (and really does not really have to die anyways).Know more with tianchinesehome Skype Chinese class #246 Tian (Monday, 26 June 2017 05:38) Top question for today's Skype Chinese class:Why does China have more than one Chinese language?the theory is that the original Chinese language started around the Yellow river, and then migrated all over the Eastern China. Just like Latin evolved into Spanish, Italian, French, Romanian etc, the Chinese language evolved into several different languages. They do share a lot of the characteristics but the writings tend to differ a bit in grammar and how the syntax is constructed though they share similar characters. Just like Spanish and Italian both use Latin scripts.

Second, there are a lot of allusions in Chinese poems and they are actually used a lot in daily life (kind of like quoting Shakespear or Chaussier all the time..). Without learning in Chinese poems, learners may encounter many barriers when communicating with Chinese (you may understand every element in the talking and get the obvious meanings but not able to get the indications). #390 陈娜红 (Monday, 18 September 2017 16:13) On today'sSkype Chinese Class,I am so sad about the situation that there was something wrong with the internet.Lin Shan called me many times and we successfullly had the class in five minutes later.We talk about knowledge of the weather,such as sunny,rainny,windy and cloudy.I hope she csn do a better job in future's class.She was absent minded in today 's Chinese Class. #391 陈娜红 (Monday, 18 September 2017 16:24) Today was my second time to give the Skype Chinese Class to 菲碧.She is a smart girl and we had a good time with each other.We learned some words about tickets.I think the text book are difficult to her, but she also did a good job.On today's Skype Chinese Class,I want to test how 菲碧 command of the jChinese,what maked me surprised is that she can reconized most of the words we have learned.That is great! #392 陈娜红 (Friday, 22 September 2017 03:28) In today's Skype Chinese Class,I found 林珊 was absent minded,so I tried my best to attract her attention.We talk about her three cats,her favourite color,and so on.She became back on our class.I think it is a better way to have our Skype Chinese Class and to teach our students well. #393 陈娜红 (Friday, 29 September 2017 08:01) I really enjoy today's Skype Chinese Class with林珊,and she did a very good job today.At the begin,she quite a little upset,so I asked her to draw a red apple and show me.After that,she focused our Skype Chinese Class again.Today we learned some new words about skill,such as 画画，唱歌 ，跳舞。She enjoyed those things and learned them well. We also learned a phrase :今天你真棒! #394 陈娜红1 (Friday, 29 September 2017 08:09) Today was my first time to give a Skype Chinese Class to 保罗.To be honest,I was a little neverous .He is a nice and smart student,and I think that is also a learning for me,like how to become a better teacher.
