In only 5 days, I will begin my weekly chats with a student in Shanghai over either Skype or FaceTime. We will converse about different topics from festivals/holidays to food to career interests and goals to social responsibilities. This will occur weekly for 5 weeks every Friday. This is very exciting as I will get to work first hand with teaching students who do not speak English very well the differences between our languages. I will be listening for specifics when they speak and will get to inform them of the phonetic and phonological differences between their language and mine (English). As a linguistics major in hopes of pursuing speech pathology, this week can not go fast enough until I finally sit down for the first time and meet this student.
