Have had to do a placement test for my ELTF sponsorship. Could do part A relatively well....so I think! Part B....too hard for me...Overall I think I am where I should be on my learning journey.
Wrote a homestay letter for my ELTF sponsorship. Was quite pleased with the results...though of course it is not error free nor is it very sophisticated language. Yet I am pleased with the result.
Trimester two finished a few weeks ago at UNE. I have to wait until February 2013 to begin formal courses / units at my university. Though this time allows me to indulge in some free self directed studies of Chinese.
Having four online lessons a week at Chinese Mandarin School has allowed me improve my spoken Chinese. I have really enjoyed the lessons with my teacher.
These are sort of milestones for me. It is satisfying indeed to be able to do simple things in Chinese.
