Thank you for following us here. We’ve already finished the first of four weeks of our Grammar course.

This week,we’ve learned some useful expressions of time and dates, and get to know how to use “是”( shì ) to give information about yourself such as your name, nationality and career,how to use different question words to ask questions such as “who,where and what”.

You also have a general idea about the Chinese Spring Festival Gala,the Chinese lunar calendar.

I hope you are interested in 姚明Yáo míng and 成龙Chéng lóng,and Guangchang Wu(广场舞).

Well,What impressed you most this week? Please feel free to share your ideas with us. You are welcome to write to us if you have any questions.
