Jeremy is an amazing fellow, very fluent in and knowledgeable about Mandarin Chinese. Also, inspiringly for those of you who are not ethnically Chinese, Jeremy is a white dude like me -- only his Mandarin language skills are at a whole 'nother level -- leaps and bounds above mine.
Please attend class this Thursday. DO NOT SKIP JUST BECAUSE I AM LETTING YOU ALL KNOW IN ADVANCE THAT I WILL NOT BE TEACHING THIS WEEK. I assure you that you will learn a lot from Jeremy, who will pick up exactly where we left off last week.
Hopefully, Jeremy will also let me know what he covered, so I can summarize the material in a supplemental blog entry before my next class that I will teach next week.
See you all 2 Thursdays from now. Thanks, Everyone.
