Continuing on with a second great day of classes and getting to know people/places around here. Been enjoying talking to new friends who are also into languages and many other cool things and are excited about being here and moving forward with a new way of thinking. Had some nice chats and saw a presentation on language learning in addition to regular Uzbek class activities and new learnings.
Lots of multimedia to share today, so I'll let that speak for itself:
|Notes on the board this morning: adjectives and personal ending constructions for inherent Turkic "to be" verbs|
|Snapshot of a classroom phrase sheet (super helpful) and my textbook this morning|
|Going over small stories/paragraphs of sentences using out vocab words with our teacher|
|Some of the students from our Elementary Uzbek class, looking over the sentences|
|More shots of our work today in groups on the big presentation paper|
|Reviewing personal endings to hang up along the wall for easy reference|
|Exploring the campus with a nice walk and music in the afternoon :)|
|On the way back from work at the library (see below) and taking in the beautiful nighttime views of my current location|
Here are the sections I created tonight while working in the library:
Last but not least, here is a quick talky blog I recorded on the way back to my dorm tonight. Just sharing my gratefulness & inspired/inspiring-ations and thoughts on being here thus far.
Some things to look out for in future posts: * Run throughs of Uzbek textbook lessons * More vocab review pieces and class resources * More photos of everyday life here in AZ * Reviews of local supermarkets and markets * How I found and joined this program * Fun and random story-based posts Until next time!
