Today we had few people, some important questions and a lovely activity around BH – To Belong.
Reading Projects: people wrote their names and projects and I’ll be creating a Page above for you all to complete the info, and with info on the projects, too. Ideas and the schedule we agreed on.
Winter Hol work: I’ll post about this this week, OK? But working on listening is a priority, and I’ll post on two documentaries.
Language item: acquaintances and friends, to be acquainted with something/someone, to get acquainted with something/somebody. To be familiar with. The more acquainted you are with a documentary the better your outline becomes. For instance, my first outline of BH – To Belong was with key words on experiments, mostly, but have a look at my latest outline:
My second outline (much more about the points, not so much about the experiments — evolution to a deeper understanding!)
BH – To Belong:
Key (though pops next day we could go through it, in case there are some interesting items): belong / a sense of self / seeing – off / attachment / hooked up / naked / mirrors / monitored / grow up / price / crawling / consoled / unhealthy / is about to / engage / subside / initiat / engrossed / Research’s shown / fades / receive / encourages / how / emerge / fit in / milestone / as a / examine / solve / preventing – from / further / it’s the mat’s fault / she is standing / roll up / concluded.
We reviewed the work we did the other day, for newbies to this activity. Then we watched twice.
Then people spoke and talked. Although they were initially reluctant, they finally did so and I’m very grateful for this! 🙂 ❤ : Germán and Sonia made a great summary, and together! — without having planned it beforehand! Karen and Maria José, Dolores and Sergio discussed their highlights, which included childhood memories, thoughts on learning processes, education and mistakes, and bonding in the family. (Please, feel free to post your comments below, because it was all really interesting. It was a very C1 thing to relate the input to one’s own world, with that depth.)
Here’s the cartoon Karen mentioned (good for this post, too):
I mentioned how strange some mainstream connections are, such as if you ask somebody to do you a favo(u)r, without allowing a natural yes or no, this is, expecting the person just to say yes, because if the person says no that means (and here is the strange connection, some consistently taught in society) the person does not love you. The kind of connections that lead us all to lie and justify lying.
Clara borrowed Baby Human, Sonia borrowed Sherman Alexie’s novel, and Sergio the printing of a screenplay for his reading project.
I asked about our last lesson together this year, and Germán suggested we did nothing! 😀 Lucía will bring a song, and I will bring a story. NOW THAT I THINK OF IT, IT’S THE DAY FOR YOUR POEMS!!! SHIT! I FORGOT!
Oh well. We’ll see if a kind soul tells us a poem! ❤
Remember all to check out this blog for info on our plans for the hols! 🙂 ❤
