敏浩，a clever boy who love thinking.He often puts forward a lot of problems which makes me staggered.After a few classes,I know how to face his problems.That's to pay more attention to the class
content in order to catch every knowledge point.Besides,preparing some fuuny supplementary materials are essential.I think he is very happy to learn more knowledge in Chinese class. I agree that
Chinese class is a life class.

吴娟苹 (Tuesday, 10 May 2016 06:58)
What I learn from this skype Chinese class is being patient whether your student come or not. Gratefully, 白莲 came to study in the end, but she showed a little interest. Maybe I should change my way
of teaching in skype Chinese class, which can attract her more attention to my class.

那威 is a very clever boy.However,In today's Skype Chinese Class,I find that he has forgotten many words that he learned before.So I think he probably isn't focused enough in the class.Now I hope that
I can make him more relaxed in Skype Chinese Class,so that he can find the enjoyment of learning Chinese.

On Saturday morning,I played a game with 白鷺 in Skype Chinese Class . I drew pictures in my blackboard and then 白鷺 guessed what the Chinese characters are. In that moment,白鷺 was so interested that she
took her paper out wanting me to guess.As for me she was very enjored the game.Importantly, she can learned some easy Chineese characters through game in Skype Chinese Class. The pity of this Skype
Chinese Class was that we spent too much time in this game, 白鷺 could not learn more examination questions seriously .I hope I can do it better in next time.
黄幼萍 (Wednesday, 18 May 2016 07:09)
Today I waiting for Saiaksh for about 30minutes because his mother is not sure for the class time,but it doesn't affect the class schedule. I change my teaching way by playing a game with Saiaksh to
make it more interesting to remind the word for him. I prepare some simple pictures drawn by me to let him guess the word and conbine the word have learned last class with the new word.It is a useful
way.He master the word learned for a period of time better than the latest word.And this time he is also easy to feel boring during class,I think maybe I should try some more funny way to attract
him. Hope to do better next time.

Ishan is a clever boy .His pronunciation is very good.However, sometimes he couldn't understand my meaning exactlly because I speaked quickly.Anyway, I have tried to slow down my speed and look for a

I was so disappointed and upset that one of the tutors was late for Today's Skype Chinese Class for The Berates sisiters. They are getting more and more intersted, but Lyall's tutor was late and

the birds are so cute.Then we started our class,we wrote two writing part together today.It's difficult for her to write if she can't understand the questions.So,learning more characters is very
neccessary.And also,I need to teach her how to distinguish the characters.This is no a easy job for her,but she's working very hard.I am so pround that I can have a student like her.

In today's Chinese Skype Class, 马布 showed me her "huge" books, Biology and University Physics. 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.

I sat in Naveen's Skype Chinese Class today. Glad to see Miss Hong did a great job ! The amazing thing about her Skype Chinese is that she tried her best to let Naveen speak as much Chinese as
possible , which is highly important in any Skype Chinese Class.

Jashwant's Skype Chinese Class didn't go well 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.

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.

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.

Skype Chinses class question time again:How do you say "cousin" in Chinese?Would it be “同辈亲戚” or “堂表兄弟姐妹” or something like that? one Skype Chinese class student asked?When the book mentions
“cousin", I really do need to figure out just which “cousin" this person is. There's really no way around it.It depends if he or she , older or younger, from your mother's side or father's side. More
of culture thing than a word . Good to know in Skype Chinese Class.

Some curture from Skype Chinese class :Why do English speakers and many other (non-Mandarin speaking) people use the word “Hong Kong” which is neither from Cantonese nor Hakka, and in fact, of
obscure and uncertain origin?
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

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.

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..
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

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. Useful basics to learn
from Skype Chinese class.

seat by age sequence, the elders and guests have priority to sit. Forieigners use knife and fork but chinese use chopsticks and spoon to eat food. People should pick up their chopsticks until the
elders begin to eat. Then the important thing is that people are not allowed to put the chopsticks pointing to others and stab your chopsticks into your bowl of rice, which are unpolite manners.
Because placing tow chopsticks down in a bowl of rice is what happen at a funeral. What's more, it is rude to leave food in your bowl when you finish your dinner. And the food is in a common plate,
so we should use a communal chopsticks and can't pick the food piece by piece in the plate, just pick up the first you have touched. This skype chinese class introduces some simple rules of eating,
hope you are able to catch some information from it.

opposite way case.The first man who used this stratagem is 诸葛亮, an outstanding statesman in three Kingdoms period.He pretended playing Guqing leisurely and opening the city gate to the enemy.The
enemy was doubtful and then they withdrew troops because Zhu Geliang was so resourceful that they don’t think it was a real deserted city.And the No.36 stratagem is easy to remember.走为上策 Run first,

Tomorrow is 中元节（zhōng yuán jié）Hungry Ghost Festival in China but tonight you will hear the sound of firecrackers. There is a legend that underworld will release all the ghosts and now we meet again
after a long separation so we celebrate it. Skype Chinese Class will introduce more to you. This festival also has the name of 鬼节or 上元节. It is on the 15th day of the seventh month of the Chinese
lunar calendar so we also called it 七月半 in folk. People often sweep the tombs and worship ancestor. A reason is because some of crops are ripe then we should use the new rice to worship the ancestors
and report the harvest to the ancestors. Some place will worship ancestors in Qingming Festival but others prefer Hungry Ghost Festival.Thanks for your reading in Skype Chinese Class.

Skype Chinese class tips for remembering characters: I think all students have the same problem of remembering characters when taking Skype Chinese classes. Well , one of the ways is to practice your

What is your great advice on Skype Chinese class?Reading poems are a great hep in Skype Chinese class.First , the tone arrangement, rhythm and pace in poems are very strict but very common in daily
use, thus by mastering the reading of poem, the learner can have a better internalization of the tones and pace when they are actually speaking to others.
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).
