Today marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year celebration, also referred to as Spring Festival. This year, the two-week holiday to mark the year of the Monkey lasts from February 8 through February 22 with the celebration of the Lantern Festival.
If you want to wish someone a happy new year in Chinese Mandarin, you can say, “gong-xi-fa-cai” pronounced like “gong-shee-faa-tsai.” This is written as 恭喜发财。
The individualized practice website Piqosity is celebrating the new year with a fun, monkey-themed problem set for the New SAT. Below is a link to the problem set.
Pro Tip – Behind the monkey veneer, these are just normal SAT questions. Don’t let all the monkey business distract you from understanding what the question is asking!
