What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Lots of dictations, a listen and point, and a little bit of acting’s out about protecting your home against mold.
We had 5 students today, 3 languages, all regulars. All women, too, which has happened a few times at Rockwood. I love seeing how tightly knit these folks have become and how eager they’re are to help exchanges other out, or to ask each other for help.
The material was a bit difficult to explain – I’m sure everyone got “moldy bread “but I’m not sure if they all got “moldy house.” At the end I asked if people had questions and one of the students said basically “I have a lot of questions but I don’t know how to ask them “
It was my first time teaching without a DJ in quite a while and my pacing probably showed it – ended earlier than I intended and couldn’t get the attention back.
