Ni hao Family!!!!!
Soooo....first off, I want you to know this is definitely the
done, but once Sunday came, everything got a million times better!!!!

Life here is not what anybody told me it would be like! You're on your own the whole day, in a fifteen foot wide room with ten people. Seriously, no teachers ever telling you where to be or what to do. You're completely on your own to study and learn. I was hoping that learning Chinese would be easier since I'd be surrounded by it, but it's not that way at all right now! It is twelve hours of studying and memorizing in the same room, every single day ... but I know I can do it!!!!
So, Friday I was having a really tough time because we had our first lesson and the person we taught didn't speak English. I didn't understand a single word for thirty minutes straight, and he was very patient. He would stare at me and expect me to answer questions but I couldn't understand!! It was rough; hopefully the lesson tonight will be better.
I love you all so much, and I miss you miss you miss you. Thank you for everything, talk to you soon!!! .
Zai jian peng you men!
