Chinese Class

Tonight my niece and I went to our first Chinese class. It was so much fun! We had two excellent teachers. Because it's an adult/child class it's very "hands on". We were eating Chinese candies and foods, making paper lanterns, learning about the Lunar New Year, and learning basic words and phrases. There were some very nice people there. "A" mentioned that we were two of only a few people who weren't Chinese, and I told her that it was good for us because we can get a feel for how it might be for my daughter to be surrounded by caucasians all the time. There were several children that were there to learn Chinese so that they could communicate more with their grandparents or who were preparing for trips to China. There was a doctor who is going to be working in various orphanages. There was a mom who adopted her daughter 8 yrs ago and they are preparing for a pilgrimage back to her orphanage. We had a wonderful time! Posted by Picasa
