Teacher's Day...
September 10th in China is Teacher's Day. It's not a stat holiday so nobody gets the day off, but students sometimes give flowers to their teachers or sing them a song. Maybe I'll have to bug my students on Monday to sing me a song.

yeah, that definitely a great idea!!!!! HAHAHAHAH.......

hey, I was wondering how you communicate with people. Were they all speaking English with you, like the lady who wanted to buy you a bread...^^?

No, it was all in Mandarin. I somehow fumble through, and people generally understand. I've learned a lot since I've arrived, but I have a lot more to learn. Ming bai ma?

were you successful in having your students sing a song?

Stephen said...

No, but I did get one class to wish me a happy teachers day. I did try to get them to sing though (as they often try to get me to sing in class).
