My Chinese family is taking me to a lake tomorrow. I will try to remember the camera...
Tuesday we find out site placements, as I've probably mentioned before. Everyone wants to know where they will be for the next two years.
There are only 2 more weeks of intensive language training and we take our test. The goal is for everyone to reach the "Intermediate Low" speaking level, which bascially means survival Chinese (can talk about hobbies, weather, family, friends, ask for directions, buy all kinds of things, make comparisons, etc.). Recently I have been more likely to use Chinese with my Chinese friends and family. This has been met with mixed reviews, but mostly it has been good.
I have begun to learn reading and writing on my own. 好不好?
We went to dinner with our students yesterday. It was really great. They wanted to meet up with us again to practice their English and hang out. Maybe we will go find winter clothes next weekend.
