HUAIROU, Beijing Province:
Early morning start for our mandarin lesson. So much fun! although I do need to work a bit harder I think, to get it all to stay in!
For my lesson this week I'm getting the students to do a bit of running, which definately wakes them up, but makes them so hyper! I can't believe how competitive they get!
I'm using an R&B song that most of the students know, sticking up some of the lyrics on the wall, and asking students to run to the wall, remember a line at a time, and then run back to their group and tell the 'writer'... practises pronunciation as well as getting them to have all the lyrics in front of them without over-using the photocopier!
