The First Day of Class

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:

For me, this class is necessary and useful. I can really understand that if my English is insufficient, it will very difficult to have a successful semester in the future!
