Essential Chinese Phrases and Classroom Commands 

Learn common everyday classroom commands and essential phrases in Mandarin Chinese with videos and corresponding flashcards.  Click on each flashcard to see the English on the back.  Learning these commands help students understand me in the classroom when I speak Chinese.  I made up movements for each command to help students remember better.  From my teaching experience, I find that learning becomes more authentic when you combine various learning modalities.  After all, we all learn differently.  The videos are listed from the most recent ones to the earliest ones.
