    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): First official day of class! We had 4 learners rejoining for the second term of this class. We were able to start right off and did some basic practice from last term- past and present tense in the context of daily life. This led to Raquel showing me a note she had received during her workday that she didn’t quite understand. We took apart the english in the note, and then we talked about how we would respond to it (which is something we will talk about a lot in later classes). We finished with pretty spirited ‘pronunciation practice’ – using the term loosely, but it was fun and constructive.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Today we focused on language around reporting problems to maintenance and supervisors. Using complete sentences to write notes and using correct terminology (broken, clogged, burnt out, etc.) were stressed. We also went over basic work vocabulary both laundry and housekeeping come across every day.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We are expanding our English around reporting issues (both verbally and written) and doing role-playing. Also, lots of pronunciation practice.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Lourdes is back, and she joined Marta and Raquel. Today we taped the students reading a short work-related script which, unfortunately, I was unable to play back for them-computer issue. I will try again Thursday. It was good practice nonetheless. We have also done a lot of past tense practice. Today we looked at images and talked about what action took place previously to lead to the image. Lastly, played hangman with previous vocabulary. Luis joined us for the last activity.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): (This post is for Thursday-previous post marked Thursday is actually Wednesday, 4/16) New student Marcelina joined us. We had a ‘test’ about what we went over previously. Also played a game where we practiced and demonstrated verbs. Totally fun, and I feel like they will remember a good amount of what we learned. Marcelina is a little more advanced than the other students so was able to join in just fine. However, the verb game was challenging for her and the other students, and Marcelina wanted to continue to play it next week, which we will if we have time.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We went off on a tangent about simple present tense continuous, which led to a lot of writing and practicing-I am working, I am cleaning, etc. We also finished our verb game. Considering how much writing they did they were engaged throughout. Their writing level is about the same but their speech and sentence structure seems to be improving little by little. It was an encouraging class.
