Another morale-boosting surprise for JD yesterday when he received a First Prize Certificate from the Yunnan Provincial English Speech Competition (which we'd entered by video a month ago and completely forgotten about!). We know his English is good, but to come first in all Yunnan (pop: 40m) was both unexpected and very encouraging.
Now we just hope that yesterday's mid-term Chinese exam earns him an "average" grade in his class and not "bottom five" as we've come to expect! [...UPDATE: Sadly, another bottom five score - 76%]
