Our Mandarin Instructors

mi 1We 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.
