There were strengths and weaknesses in the lessons I gave her this time. At the beginning I had her review the vocabulary she learned last week before starting on the new content. In this I found one problem, she was not very focused and it took her a long time to write a word. So I interrupted her and told her to listen carefully and that all I could provide was a once-a-week language environment, which was actually not enough. If you don't listen well for that hour, it's hard to improve your Chinese. I then skipped to the part of reading the words first, so she could focus her attention and then come back to writing. This was very efficient.
