This week we made lanterns to celebrate the Chinese Lantern Festival which is being celebrated at the moment around the world. On our lanterns we wrote symbols like 爱(ai-love) and 和(he-peace).
新年快乐! (xin nian kuai le)- Happy Chinese New Year! We have had a busy year so far in Mandarin Club learning the language and finding out all about the culture. We have all tried to use chopsticks and we have made lots of traditional crafts to celebrate Chinese New Year. We even tried to write using Chinese characters! Happy year of the pig! 谢谢! (xiexie- thank you)
