Today , with huge anticipation and excitement the Tuesday students began learning their choice of either Spanish or Mandarin. Welcome to our tutors Anne and Thanya, they were fabulous, our students lapped these lessons up with considerable expertise for Day 1. We learned introductory greetings and phrases and replies today! I hope the students practice with you all...
Ni Hao - Hello
Ni Men Hao - Hello to more than one person
Da ja hao -Hello to everyone, large group
Mandarin has four tones which we learned and the accompanying macrons displayed above the phrases or characters.
Ni hao ma - How are you
Wo bu hao - Bad day
Wo hen hao - I am fine
Ma ma hu hu - Just so so
Xie Xie ni - Thank you
We will post more Spanish after Thursday's lesson. Enjoy the practice!
