Hi Shyla. I'm so glad to hear that you liked our blog. It's a wonderful idea to post videos of students speaking Chinese. We thought about this at the beginning of the program and tried to do that, but we couldn't as the internet is so much slower in China. What a bummer! But I'm really proud of Aaron for the progress he's made throughout the program. Please tell him Jiang Laoshi and Li Laoshi say hi!
