The test will provide the correct answer as well as an explanation as to why it is the correct answer. Feel free to ask questions about grammar and let us know your (perfect?) score in the comments section.

Zhao Hui Lan: Student of the Month

Our new student of the month is Zhao Hui Lan. She’s in Class 1B at the Houston Street Center. Her teacher is Elsie Choi. Watch a video interview with Hui Lan, take a short quiz about the video, and read her short autobiography below. Congratulations, Hui Lan!


My name is Zhao Hui Lin. I’m from Guangdong, China. I’m a student and a housewife.

I’m average height and slender. I have long, straight black hair. I usually wear a pair of nearsighted glasses with a sweet smile. I look like my father.

I’m friendly, optimistic, honest, responsible, studious, generous, artistic, and outgoing. For example, when I get difficulties, I always like to eat some sweet chocolate and candies. I will be all right when I get up the next day.

I like to make more friends. I like shopping online, but I always buy things on sale. I like to look beautiful and neat. And I have a big family. We’re close. I love my family and my three children.
