Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
 There are three parts to this lesson: 
1) We will brainstorm places we've seen or can see Chinese characters (books, Chinatown, restaurants, paintings) ;
2) Your child will learn and practice the art of writing the Chinese character 鼠 (Shǔ) which means rat;
3) Draw a rat (teacher directed).
I was born in Hong Kong and brought up in a Cantonese Chinese speaking environment throughout my life. My parents believed that preserving our Chinese culture was crucial, hence, I was enrolled in Mandarin Chinese lessons from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Combined with my Chinese knowledge and teaching degree, I am a Chinese supply teacher at the community language school. I have the knowledge, skills and abilities to teach your child this fabulous language. 
Checking for understanding will be done throughout the lesson.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
PDF files will be available for download prior to the lesson. I encourage students to print it out in order to practice with me in class.
