On my last unit test in Chinese class, I received a mark of 7.7. Considering I started late in October, I have done well in adjusting to the class and have been able to catch up to the rest of the class. I am good at writing the letters and understanding their meaning. I think I could improve on talking the people beside me. My skills of copying sentences to understand their meaning are good strategies that work for me. This helps me memorize more letters for writing Chinese and retain the meanings of the letters. I will continue using these study skills which will help me continue to excel in Chinese Phase 1 class. Next year I am taking Ab initio Chinese as one of my standard level classes for Diploma Program, so I will need to use these skills to help me in this more advanced class. My attitude in Chinese class is very positive. I get very excited about learning this new language and enjoy the feeling of when I succeed. I am good with completing my homework on time and on dictation, I have created an efficient method for myself that allows me to learn the new words and create sentences. In dictation, understanding the words makes it easier for me to write the sentences. Through Chinese Phase 1, I have learned about Chinese culture and the traditions. Chinese New Year is a very important part of the Chinese society that started through hiding from the Nian. In Chinese culture, years are also given names based on animals. This year is the year of the dog, the 11th Chinese zodiac which stands for honesty and loyalty. When I first came to Hong Kong, I was not excited about learning Chinese for it is considered one of the hardest languages to learn. Once I began learning the course, I was not sure I would be able to catch up to the rest of the class and was scared I would be behind forever. When I realized I needed more improvement and extra help, I began coming to after-class sessions for more assistance. During lunches, I would come three times a week and had one-on-one lessons with my teacher, Lu Chen. After a couple weeks of attending these lunch meetings, I was able to get ahead and make up the material I had missed during the first two months of school.
