I love when our chapters include 65 new words and 20 of them are names of dishes! because Chinese dishes we are actually excused from learning.
What we do need to learn, however, are characters for 'sounds'... such as... 'what does the dog say'. Do you know, that in China, a dog says: 汪汪 'wang wang'
(Interesting. In Sweden, our dogs says 'vov, vov' or 'voff''. How does it sound where you are from?)
As for more, completely useless characters, that I now know, and figured I should share with you (I mean, it is, after all, FRIDAY!!), here you go:
喵喵 miao miao (cat)
咴咴 hui hui (horse)
哞哞 mou mou (cow)
I think this qualifies as one of the less important Chinese lessons of my life. On the contrary, however, we got to listen to our teacher (who is around 35 and the serious kind) doing animal noises. Quite entertaining. Especially when a girl asked him what the frogs in China says....
Anyways, I hope these 'animal sounds' aren't part of our upcoming exams....
