Tonight we are studying Chinese poems. This is a classical piece by one of the renowned poets in the Tang Dynasty. He wrote this on the spot upon returning to his home village. Besides reciting and understanding the meaning of the poem, I’ve also included some background information about the author, one of the things I know for sure is not taught in the “regular” Chinese school. This is one of the easier poems to recite once you get the meaning. Ah Lo is struggling since I make him annunciate the correct tone on every single word. Boy, being a teacher is not that easy.
