Chinese Language Exercises

I started going to a yoga class. It’s really hard because although I can understand simple things like up, down, left, right and basic body parts, I can’t understand many verbs. I don’t think I understood a single verb in that whole class! It was really tough to follow without really understanding the teacher, but it’s good to remind myself of what my students go through.

My survival-level Chinese now includes Taxi Survival (turn left, turn right, stop here, no, we agreed on 20 kwai), Speak-or-Starve, Teacher Essentials and now “breathe deeply”, “relax your body” and “open your chakras”.
