Chinese is a great language, and I love learning about it and the culture behind it. Sometimes, though, my Chinese teacher gets a bit out of hand with how far she thinks our brains will stretch. She’s a great Chinese teacher, and I respect her way of teaching, but.. . . Tomorrow I have a test on thirty vocabulary words that I haven’t learned yet. I was absent last week for an appointment, and because I wasn’t feeling well. Paying for that now, aren’t I?
