    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): What a great class! Ramin started off with the alphabet sheet and yell n spell. Next we moved onto a dictation progression of the title of the lesson, and then did a dictation progression of new vocabulary words like pharmacy, medication, prescription, etc. We did a round robin of “Are you feeling sick?” “Yes, I am/ No I’m not”. We also did a listen and do (TPR) which included cough, sneeze, and drink, which was both Ramin’s and my favorite part of the class – Ramin had the learners act out the verbs, rather than just repeat them. The learners seemed to enjoy this a lot and one learner even said in Spanish that they’d been sneezing that week and now they had the word to express that in English. Next, we did another dictation progression of a dialogue about picking up a prescription from a pharmacy, and practiced it around the room. We ended with a Listen and Point with a word cloud containing many medical vocabulary words. Ramin wondered during the reflection if having two learners switch seats was a good idea, and it was a good move and worked well. I would not have changed anything about this class, except the room we were in, as there was a loud event going on next door. One of the learners requested that we use the other room at St. Andrew’s on Tuesdays as this is normally the case, so we will try to do this going forward. Overall, one of the best classes I’ve been a part of! Working with Ramin is always a pleasure and I learned a lot by observing him.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Facilated class solo and it went well. Kept to the theme of the harvest moon and harvesting. Brought in lot of fresh produce props and a lively discussion was had about werewolves. Had a nice sing a long to Bruno Mars “Talking to the Moon”. Class well connected and engaged with each other!
