Another Mandarin textbook illustration


To my surprise (I’ve been teaching Chinese for a few years now and never tried doing textbook illustrations until a few weeks ago), I realised that I was sitting there grading my students’ homework and  thinking about possible illustrations of the lesson we are currently on in our textbook. And since drawing textbook illustrations is a great way to procrastinate grading piles of homework, it’s obvious which I chose to do.

The dialog in the textbook is about a student who has so much schoolwork that she spends all her weekends studying in her room. Only after finishing the bedside table I realised that the furniture layout in the room in the picture was exactly the same as my dorm in Shanghai two years ago.
