she improves by leaps and bounds

Celeste has been attending mandarin classes, not to brush up on her Mandarin but she doesn’t speak a single word of Mandarin prior.

Now, after countless of classes and hair pulling “tien sie” (spelling) exercises, her class “graduated”  today and parents were invited to watch 30 minutes worth of activities by the kids; singing and group reading.

Teacher Lee gave a simple explanation (in Mandarin, of course) of what’s went into the classes and what parents should be doing to keep the momentum going, at home. I kept nodding not because I understood what she said but merely to act like one.

One consolation from Teacher Lee who acknowledges that Celeste command of Mandarin improves; by leaps and bounds 🙂
