The Tuesday evening class would be too late but the Saturday afrnteoon one would work.I’ve been doing these workshops on SKYPE and one or two remote students works well. Scott

Here’s some additional related vocabulary for this Chinese lesson online:
秋季 (qiūjì) autumn
冬季 (dōnɡjì) winter

Yes, you are right. “季 (jì)” means “season.”

In this Chinese lesson online, I notice the phrase “夏季 (xiàjì)” means “summer season,” so can I say “春季 (chūnjì) spring?”
