SO FAR SO GOOD | Week 02

Hey everybody.

Good to be back.

Enough chitchat, let’s get to work.

RE: LEVELS

For the time being, I’ll publish all the materials in one big pile right here and let you pick and choose.

QUIZLET

I’ll be using Quizlet as the vehicle for interactive tests from now on. (Replacing Cram.) It should work fine both on your phone and online.

NOTES FROM A SMALL IKEA CHAIR

I was going to include a recording from an advanced class in our first email. But. Last Friday on my way home from uh, the, uh, public library, I lost my voice recorder, along with all the recordings.

Then I found it a few days later (long story), but by then I figured I’d just make a conscious effort to include all the good stuff in this week’s recording. In other words, don’t worry, you didn’t miss out on anything.

YOUR COMMENTS

This here is a safe place for your angry outbursts, snarky little putdowns, links to things not working… you get the idea.

Have a nice weekend, everybody.
