Spring Semester Begins Tomorrow!

Regardless of whether or not students are ready to go to school, COD classes will begin tomorrow and have a first quiz in the first class! About 40% retention in Japanese 1101 brought just over 40 students in 1102 and luckily enough to be spread into 3 different classes! About a dozen students continue to learn Japanese at 2202 and a handful students are in 2252. GTS certainly hope to have fun together and enjoy the moment with with students in class. The Japan Field Study Program during the Spring break (3/20-29) and the Summer Japan Study Abroad Program (6/23-7/30) are now accepting the application!

It is, indeed, Chinese. Bing Tang is rock candy (solid candy). Hu Lu is wheezing but I am not sure what actually means. Let's as Mr. Zhang in our class! -GTS

Alright! But I remember I saw it at the flea market so there must be a Japanese name for it right?
