My Family Assignment 我的家庭作业 #1: Writing the article and Come up with a Vocabulary List
Here is the article you need for these two assignments:
1. Write the entire article in Chinese characters and learn their English meaning and how to read. I will ask you to translate the meaning and read them out loud in the next assignment. (10 points)
2. Make a list of new vocabulary in Chinese with English definition and pinyin. (5 points)
My Family Assignment 我的家庭作业 #2： Reading and Translation
Prepared to read and translate line by line for this whole article in class. You will read it from the whiteboard. There won’t be any pinyin in the article. Therefore you will need to make an effort to read the whole article in Chinese characters.
(You could have your new vocabulary list at hand to take a glance if you have to, but do make an effort to read without having to look up the words.)
