En 8: Wednesday, 5 October

Last class Poya gave us a visit and discussed her home country, Taiwan and her exchange to Canada.  I then introduced the concepts of accent and dialect, and then read Chapters 7-8 with two distinctly different English accents (to illustrate the differences between the soldier's and officer's speech patterns in The Snow Goose).

Today we took time to get our photos taken whilst working on the study guide questions for those two chapters.  I took time to tell the story of Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner and the story of the good Samaritan.  I also listed the seven sins and virtues, and we briefly discussed numerical symbolism.  For homework, please complete the guide questions you were unable to finish in class.
