01/05/2020 Friday Roundup
This past week winter has truly felt like it's on the way. The only upside being it makes staying indoors that little bit easier. We successfully held our online Taichi lesson yesterday and from the feedback received we hope to make it a regular activity. If you missed out, be sure to join next time. From this week, we'll also begin including a weekly chengyu 成语 or Chinese idiom at the end of our newsletter as a fun way to give you an insight into Chinese language and culture.
