In one of the small groups, they reviewed simple phrases by looking at little books and saying them aloud.
bu ke qi (that's fine/you're welcome)
dui bu qi( sorry)
mei guan xi (it's okay)
jia you (go! come on!)
We learned a new song about little chinese lanterns and counting
xiao deng long (little lantern) gao gao gua (hung up high)
yi er san si wu liu qi, yi er san si wu liu qi ba jiu shi,
yi er san si wu liu qi (counting)
Sung to the tune of "I love you, you love me" (made quite famous by a one purple dinosaur)
In the morning class we worked some more with the phrase "wo xi huan" = I like, and graphed who like different hobbies.
In the afternoon class, we had guests from China come for a special visit and answer questions. The kids seemed to really like talking to "real Chinese people". Many hadn't thought that people from other countries have to learn English when they come here, or realized how far away China is and that there are really people all over the world that speak Chinese.
