In today's class we continued some work about Fu Hao. We analysed the language structures used in the text that we looked at in the previous lesson.

The key to the analysed text is:

passive form
present perfect
past simple

Here is an excellent video related to the article:

National Geographic Video (National Geographic site)

Then we moved on to another activity where we looked at a timeline of Chinese history and formed links with some more familiar historical events in the Western and Near Eastern world.

Timeline links:

Timeline of world history
Metropolitan Museum of Art Timeline
