中文

The intensive language course at China Institute resumed again this week, after a three-week hiatus. We've finished Threshold and Volume 1 of Lower Elementary so it's into Volume 2!

Not everyone from the first trimester was able to stay on. Honduran Nelson and Chinese Indonesian Christian have conflicts with their emerging work schedules, and Mexican Enrique has disappeared too, presumably for the same reason. (9:15-12:15 Tuesday and Thursday would mix poorly with most work schedules; I'm lucky my teaching and service this semester is Mondays, Wednesdays, and the afternoons of Tuesdays and Thursdays!) With Euro-American Andrew and Korean Juhee staying on and a new student (Matthew, a Cantonese Australian) we might just be four. No complaints from me: Even more intensive - and still strikingly international!
