The First step in our program include the learning of the alphabet and basic phrases that is why we meet a short time after our initial meeting. We today we don´t meet at TAMK because for the first lesson it´s good to have a neutral place for doing the real basic stuff for learning a new language. For a good start at first, we both need a coffee.
The first hour was the German lesson. We begin at first with the alphabet and all there difficult pronunciations begin from A to Z. Feng does a good job but the most difficult letter was I,R and the German sch and ch – we will try it next times more. Overall, he makes a good job for the first time.
The second hour the Chinese lesson. We done the same way in Chinese like the one in German at first we do the normal pronunciation of the first Chinese alphabet without the special sound levels. I didn´t know that in the Chinese exists besides the character normal sound letters. Therefore, it is not so difficult to learn the pronunciation, but it will be a big challenge to learn them. In addition to the alphabet, I learn the word thank you= 谢谢 Xièxie.
