  1. So that’s the sī in company! Even though I’ve seen it many times it seems I understand and retain it much better when I see a whole page about it. Once you get to 2000 (or even 1000) characters you need to compile them in a book and sell it along with the worksheets. It would be an amazing resource (though you may need someone to go over the translations).

    Regarding the translation here, the second example sentence should be “The school’s dean presided over the graduation ceremony.” 司仪 should also translate as ‘MC’ if you’re shortening it.


    1. Hi nockgeneer,
      Thanks for your suggestion. And also for the translation of the second example sentence. I have updated it.
