Group Discussion Topic: Change

Hey everyone!  From now on I’m going to be combining both classes questions and lexis into one post.  The easier questions will be first, the harder questions will be last.

So if you come on Monday, please be prepared to answer the intermediate-advanced questions!  If you come on Tuesday, please be prepared to answer the beginner-advanced questions.

Also, for my students: There will be no class during Obon holidays (August 11th and 12th), just this coming week (August 4th and 5th).  The next group discussion class after that will be August 18th and August 19th.

Also, it looks like there is still some interest in a Saturday class, so if you are available on Saturday and would like to join, please let me know!

If you are a student of mine, I hope to see you at one of the discussion groups. If anybody (student or not) has any questions about this blog, please let me know: Post a comment here, find me on twitter, or email me through my website. Thanks!

During the next group discussion class, we will be talking about change. Here is a list of the lexis and possible questions which we may use during the lesson:
