Over the following days I practised my new vocabulary on homemade flashcards and the Duolingo app and I was thoroughly enjoying it. I was learning important, useful new words and I pushed on to prepare for my next lesson!
I have created a board to help my students revise some (just some!) of their new vocabulary from this week. If you have a moment, why not check it out?
Through the webcam you can't always see that frown of confusion or those 'lightbulb' moments, and that's something I miss.
My own students are absolutely wonderful and I've not had a single bad, negative, weird or worrying lesson with them at all. They always do their homework, they always engage with the work and they are so dedicated.
