It's so great knowing that because being able to speak Chinese, after returning to Taiwan the day before yesterday, my student successfully managed to secure a centralized quarantine station for her family, especially for the kids! During the online class today, I happened to see her using Mandarin directly contact with FoodPanda and UberEat's deliveryman and easily obtain all the daily necessities and food needed.
As her teacher, I'm really proud of her. I said, "We must start the second volume of textbooks during your isolation. Otherwise, it will become so unreasonable returning to Israel with such a heavy book" She said, "Teacher, although we do not have lots of progress of textbook, you taught me more important things. Otherwise, how can I communicate with the taxi drivers for epidemic prevention, translate for them, and even help myself to get a suitable centralized quarantine station? What I learned has been so worthy! "
Being able to apply what we're learning is always exciting.
My Israeli lady never disappoints me.
At this moment, I especially feel how great it is as being a Mandarin teacher and also want to tell my students that being able to speak Chinese is truly nice and helps!
