Class began today in our nice, big, light-filled classroom in Hornbake. There were 13 students (an unlucky number?!?) from 10 countries. We began a brief review of verb tense/aspect combinations and I assigned a written self-introduction for tomorrow. (I asked them to hand-write their self-intro so I can see what their spelling mistakes are!)
Everyone in the class seems pleasant and positive, even though I know very well that most of them would rather not take the class!
Here's to a successful semester for all!
In these pictures, the students are practicing using a variety of verb tenses and aspects:
