Thursday (the 21st) marks the first day of Fall term finals; for me, finals week includes taking Math and Chem tests, handing in a History research paper, and reciting twenty memorized lines from Othello. These take place over the course of Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, so I only have one or two subjects each day (which gives me lots of time to prepare for the next one!)
The one class of mine missing from finals week is Chinese, because my teacher will be out of town during the time we were scheduled to meet. However, we still had a final project which was due on Tuesday. The assignment was to make a movie with three other classmates— we were required to use as many vocab words and grammar structures learned this term as possible, but other than that, we were free to get creative with the plot line and editing. My group made a movie about four friends opening a restaurant, titled “四个人, 四个看法, 一家饭馆, 彻底失败?” (“Four people, four ideas, one restaurant, complete disaster?”)
Here are a few stills from the movie!
