Have you ever wondered how to pronounce Chinese words correctly? Have you felt intimidated to pronounce your Chinese students’ names? In this hour-long workshop, you will learn about the Chinese pronunciation system, which is known as Pinyin. You will learn to pronounce the vowels and consonants in Chinese and how to pronounce Chinese names.
Since Chinese New Year is coming up February 1, you will also learn a little bit about Chinese culture and how to say a few words to wish your students Happy New Year in Chinese!
