Lesson prep 27 May

Ok, I can’t really say homework because I kind of didn’t really feel like it so I didn’t do it…. and the lesson is today so I need to know some of these words. I believe.

I have a lot of questions about things we learned in unit 1 because… well… the more you learn the more you realise you didn’t learn something properly or completely at the start because you didn’t know what there was to miss along the way.

So. Some simple things like blending vowel sounds… I will ask that today. I did as my online teacher back in March but she didn’t really answer it in a way that helped me understand and now there are a lot more sounds that appear to be blended so I have more examples and can make the question clearer.

The concept we are covering this week, I pretty much get because I studied that already but it is the vocabulary that I need to keep up with and I need to be able to read faster and more clearly – if I can’t say it in my head correctly I don’t have much chance to say it out loud correctly.

Ok. Here we go again. Words. Nationalities, occupation and ‘others’ (lol)…

Concept of topic marking particles was also covered. I think this will be easier to translate one way but not so easy the other. Time will tell.
