学习中文我觉得我可以放假中国,可是我不知道哪里。我有一些中国人同事,一些从北京,和一位从吉林。我也有一位老师从广州和一位从四川。中国有很多地方,我不可以决定。有的时候我想去北京,深圳,广东,香港, 和台北。 在北京我想看紫禁城和中关村。在广东我想去中山大学。我也想去诚品书店在台北。那有一个五楼书店!很大!。

这个星期我觉得了开始中文学生俱乐部在IUPUI。上几年IUPUI有了一个中文俱乐部,可是现在它没了。上几天我写了IUPUI的四位中文老师们问她们的心头。都应诺帮!下个星期我要去你们的中文班和说学生们,请你们入会。 在IUPUI每俱乐部必需至少五位学生。我希望学生们有意思。 我想一个中文俱乐部是很念。学生们可以听说中文,聊天中文问题, 和互助学习。

Next week I start my fourth semester of Chinese classes. One thing I’ve learned from past experience is that it’s very easy to forget it, if you don’t keep studying, at least a little bit. To keep 中文 mostly fresh in my mind, I decided to deleted all my flashcards in Anki and started over. […]

我是查理 (wǒ shì Chálǐ) means Je suis Charlie or I am Charlie. While I never heard of Charlie Hebdo before yesterday, I believe freedom of the press is a requirement for a vibrant democracy. My thoughts and condolences got out to the family and friends of those killed in Paris yesterday.
