Tomorrow is the last day of my most wonderful gift in being able to visit the Dongyu Offical Website. 
I wanted this morning to personally thank you all again for this precious chance to visit your site and see all the excellent things you do and do so well.
The firs thing I learned is how hard you have worked and continue to do so for the benefit of all your students...both the good ones and not so good ones.
It's just an amazing site very comprehensive, educational and lots and lots of fun. So many different personalities and approaches to learn Chinese from each day. My recent absence from your site may have caused you to wonder why..I want to let explain . 
I made a decision to attend a Chinese language school. Not just any school but the best school in our state. I spoke with the Administrator of the school this week and she said, the semester has already started two weeks ago. I explained to her I could catch up. She laughted and said Well..... She mentioned that the school would be closed for two weeks for the Chinese New Year. I started to speak about the New Year in Chinese. You could say it caught her off guard and she replied, " you can catch up I am sure! ". I said I only know a few words and phrase not much. Being modest is a trait I try to hold myself too. I represent our school Dongyu Offical so I want to be a good student.
Thanks to all of you I have so much...:) 
I want to be in a classroom with a Teacher now hope you understand I want to be your best student ever. No one knows me better than Ellie. I will always be her student. 3Q Ellie..I will keep you all updated if that's okay? 
I am the kind of person that says, If I have a "mile" I only say an "inch" !
I have done everything to ensure Dongyu Offical positions themselves well for the future. I also have made sure from the first day that Ellie and Becky like the rest of you will have a bright future unconditionally with no ties or strings attached. You will see...;) 88 :)
My classes have already started...I would like to close this post with this, " Xue2 er2 xi2 zhi1 bu1 yi4 yue4 hu4? I hope it means..To learn something and often practice it, is that not also a happy thing?

你好,Taibangle! So you're going to a Chinese language school, huh? Cool! Yeah, you're right, 学而时习之,不亦说乎(xué ér shí xí zhī, bú yì yuè hū.) This is the great wisdom of Confucius! :) If you have any questions or suggestions, let us know! Have a good day!
