The race to nightingale-ness

Today I heard one of my classmates humming a tune. Since I'm interested in music, I listened in. But try as I might, I could not make out the words. 

"Maybe its a song in some vernacular dialect" I thought.

I listened harder. But again, I could not for the world make out what she was trying to sing. 
Finally, exasperated I turned and looked at her. 

And thats when I realised, she wasn't trying to sing at all...
All she was trying to do was to practice some sentences in Chinese... 

For the uninitiated, Chinese is a required subject at GLIM.
