Hello all! 大家好！ Our first class was on Thursday February 23 at 1pm in A200. Do you want to learn more about Chinese cuisine? Then swing by next week – same place, same time!
In our lesson, we covered how to ask questions regarding food. For example, can you answer the questions below? If you don’t know what they’re saying, hover over them to read a translation. Post your answers in the comments!
Then, we discovered the properties of regional cuisine and why they are like that! For example, in Hong Kong, they love to drink milk tea. But did you ever consider that the reason for that is because Hong Kong used to be an English colony? After all, dairy is not a popular product in China – in fact, many Chinese are lactose intolerant. However, because the English brought their tea traditions (adding milk and sugar) with them to Hong Kong, the natives now love milk tea! They have expanded on the idea by making milk tea in different flavors and by adding boba. In class, we manually sorted strips of paper into categories, but here is a simple table instead.
Méiyǒu hěnduō shù
Sùcài bǐjiào shǎo
Tǔdì bù féiwò (fertile)
dōngtiān hěn cháng
Zhòngtián shíjiān bǐjiào duǎn
yǒu qúdào (irrigation)
Nóngyè hěn fēngfù
Hěnduō bùtóng de wèidào
Dōngtiān méiyǒu nàme yánzhòng
Má là huǒguō
jǐ gè xiǎo dǎo
Xiǎo dǎo shàng dìfāng yǒuxiàn
Zhū ròu, jī ròu
Yǐqián shì Yīngguó de zhímíndì (colony)
I hope you found this blog post interesting! If you want to learn more about Chinese cuisine, feel free to stop by class on Thursday in A200 at 1pm.
I’m happy that we had our first BUILD class this evening. I had five wonderful students who were very excited to start and improve their Arabic. Anyways, here is a recap of what we had in the first class:
1- We did the needs analysis for the class.
2- We warmed up with personal introduction.
3- We also finalized with a short conversation using a bunch of new words. For a quick review, here is the conversation:
كيف حالكَ/ حالكِ؟ – كيف الحال؟
ما اسمكَ/ اسمكِ؟
من أين انتَ/ انتِ؟
من أي مدينة ؟
انا من …..
تشرفنا , تشرفنا – لي الشرف
مع السلامة , مع السلامة

I was really happy to see new and returning faces 🙂 Hope that everyone had as much fun as I did. For next week please look over the short introductions as we will start with them and then add to them and start new ones. I have posted here what we went over in class. Please remember there are time when there are no direct translations, I have done my best to translate them directly for you so they might sound funny in English. See you all next week 🙂
