Let it snow. And snow.

Hope you all have a safe and snowy break! We're excited for the winter party tomorrow morning.

Just so you and your kids are aware, we're going to be working towards a no english at all classroom in January. They, of course, will not be in trouble if they speak English. But as a class, we will be setting a goal to speak only Chinese when we come through that door. This will help their brains really see a need for listening and trying to communicate with their new words, and help them progress even further with the language.


  1. had a quick question. We've ordered the rosetta stone mandarin chinese edition and i've noticed that they tend to put yi in front of everything. Should i be following this rule or not? Tying to be more interactive with our child as she goes through your class. Thank you for your input.

  2. Thanks for all you do! We love this program!!

  3. I have never used rosetta stone, so I'm not entirely sure what the frequent use of "yi" would be about. It means "one", so if they are saying one apple or one person, they made add an yi in front if it. For example, "one person" would be said "yi ge ren". Hope that helps!
