That';s the only gripe we have about the chinese. We just don';t understand why they must be tested on hanyu pinyin. If hanyu pinyin is there to test whether we have the tonation correct then they should consider giving the children an oral test instead. It just doesn';t make sense to us
Nothing if its first thing in the morning right when you get out of bed. You don’;t need to eat before short workouts/races. NOBODY can train hard with a gut full of food? and water. Blood is being diverted to digestion vs the lungs and muscles. Train light, eat /drink heavy right after.
