Directional Click

My second class of the day with Liu Laoshi and I finally got my head around using directional terms and a little bit of geography. It’s sweet knowing how to say something is east of another thing, or that I live on the eastern portion of the US and think that Baltimore (which is also in the North east-ish) is beautiful at least in the Inner Harbor. The tricky part about the maps lies in the flipping of terms Northeast is more like Eastnorth in Mandarin. Once you get the hang of the idea that the east v west component is more important than north v south, it makes sense. The school is offering a free lunch/welcome party for students. Time to boogie down!
