In our second class meeting we dove into the basics of Pinyin and Mandarin pronunciation. We practiced some basic greetings and started to learn about numbers. Our teacher, He Laoshi, made it all sound so easy (it's not), and she claims we learned quickly, but by the end of the class session my head was spinning.
This week we will review numbers and learn some etiquette related to business introductions. The introductions should help us get to know each other a little better, so I'm looking forward to that.
