Tonight as I trotted off to class I got to thinking that some of my lessons are great whilst others really stink for some reason.
I’ve been trying to find the right way to prep for my (private) classes, as there’s nothing more frustrating for me than spending (wasting?) an hour with my teacher banging my head against the table. Last week it was trying to distinguish when you use: 才cai, 再zai, and 就jiu.
One of the things I like to do while on my way to class is flip some Bach on the iPod, particulary Glenn Gould’s Goldberg Variations. That seems to get my synapses firing and puts me in the mood for learnin’
What do you do to get psyched for class?
