Hi Clive, Thank you for you question. I can see how that would seem like the straightforward answer. However, the Chinese for Sunday is xingqi tian, now tian means sky or heaven, so for Sunday think of the sun up in the sky. Bonus Lesson 2.9 goes into more detail about the days of the week and you can find more information in that lesson. Hope this helps! :D

Hi Lin, It might be easier for learners at this level to have that word. Did we get that in an earlier example? I looked in the "extra" vocabulary and didn't see it there. Just a thought, but as a language teacher, I think you might consider keeping it straight forward for the beginner to keep them motivated. Cheers
