We had our second lessons today. The instructors are very nice, knowledgeable, patient, and fun. Their English names are Emily and Wayne. We each get one and a half hours of tutoring Wednesdays and Fridays. Wayne teaches Jesse and I. Emily teaches Carlie, Natalie, and Greg. Each session is very verbal and interactive. I will let you know when (or if) I start dreaming or thinking in Chinese. These two (pictured below) seem to switch between the languages easily. They speak both languages very well, so I will probably still be able to communicate with all of you even if I begin actually communicating with people in Mandarin.
