NI2 Update

NI Students: 

We will finish the second unit in our text book next week.

To date, we have covered home and weather vocabulary in unit 1, as presented in other blog postings.  Now we are studying outdoor activities and descriptive language

 In the related grammar sections we have considered the different uses of present simple and present continuous, countable and uncoutables and the use of the definite and indefinite articles (the vs a/an).

We have also gone over postcard writing (informal letter) and descriptive language.

We noted the differences between interesting and interested, with several examples, including

thrilling  / thrilled
boring / bored
exhilarating /exhilarated
relaxing  / relaxed
annoying / annoyed

Thanks for visitng the blog and please comment whenever you have any doubts or suggestions.
Best wishes with your studies!
David Shea
