大家好 （dàjiā hǎo）
Moon Festival / Mid Autumn Festival is just around the corner.
I thought it's a good idea sharing some vocabulary about one of my favorite holidays.
So Moon Festival or Mid Autumn Festival is
"中秋節“ (zhōngqiū jié), literally meaning
mid autumn festival
So on this lovely special holiday, people in Taiwan visit their family, and it is also
considered as an important holiday for family reunion.
Here are some things we do on 中秋節
1. 送禮 sònglǐ -- give presents (to friends and family)
2. 吃月餅 chī yuèbǐng -- eating moon cake
3. 烤肉 kǎoròu -- to barbecue
So I hope you have a wonderful 中秋節！

In this lesson, you will learn the usage of 怎麼樣 (zěnme yang) and it means “how’s……?”
For example, you’re asking people, how’s your Chinese? How’s the weather in Taiwan?...etc.
By using the “How’s …?” structure, you will be able to create many different question sentences asking people’s thoughts and feelings on a certain subject.
