I arrived around 1830 WIB. Some other classmates already there. Kinda awkward at first. Nervous because it's the first class, and all of us, even we know Mandarin, but totally knew nothing about the pronunciation. Wrong pronunciation, wrong meaning. That's what I know.
First lesson, how to pronounce. Totally hard. From what I saw on Mandarin variety show, even they sometimes pronounce it wrong. So we have to twisted our tongue just to said it right. Very exhausting.
We didn't learn the pinyin directly. We use alphabets, but with certain signs to pronounce it. Still so hard to said it.
This week is my second week. I will have my mid-test by next week 23/11. Wish me luck!!!
