Study Lesson 14 Required Characters
We will start reading extra materials this semester. The content is challenging but don't be overwhelmed by it. I don't expect you to master it right away. The goal is to expose you to material relevant to your life and test your reading skills. We will not have any tests on these materials but a presentation. Following the steps below:
|Quiz: Dictation of Lesson 14 Required Characters |
Get prepared for the group presentation (> 6 minutes), PowerPoint slides are required.
*The grading criteria are listed in the Syllabus. Send your PowerPoint Slides to your instructor and indicate who is responsible for which part.
Review Lessons 13 and 14. Make sure you can reproduce the required characters in both lessons from memory and recognize the other characters by sight. Review the grammatical points, sentences patterns and word usage, and exercises.
Test format will be announced.
|Test 2 (50 Minutes; on Lessons 13 and 14).|
