Today we had our first Chinese lessons. The class went for nearly an hour and we learned several words, but in the main learned the “initial” letters and the “final” letters and sounds of the Chinese language. Hard stuff.
Our class had 5 students – 3 Australians, one from America and one from Korea.
At the end of the class one of the staff came in to tell M2 and I that we are to be taken to the police station tomorrow afternoon, to check that we are indeed the persons on our passports.
(I wonder what they will make of me with my blonde hair – when my passport shows me with darker hair.)
Bit by bit we are settling in. I have had an email from another Aussie who is to join us in a couple of weeks.
