Usually I blog on this topic after I’ve done something and I report on it. But I have been using a “Conversation profile” guide for stimulating conversation between me and my Urdu-speaking friends. I looked at it and realized it might fit in with a review project I’ve been working on. I want to make up a list of frequent words in our stories, words like “terrified”, “leads/takes”, “does/makes”, etc. I’ve noticed that my second year esp doesn’t seem to have picked up on these words and some of them (not “terrified” I hope) are useful for conversation.
With little time to finish our stories and little time to review, I want to introduce several devices for review. This is one of them. I’ll report on others as we go along (the next two weeks).
