Hell Week

During this week we will have days where we will have discussion questions being asked. During
Discussion days, we working on what is at task for that day, but majority will be spent talking to
each other. During this whole entire week my expectations for everyone is that you all will make
an attempt to struggle in speaking Spanish. It is not from success that we learn; it is from failure
that we rise and learn best from in order to further our education as student and teacher. Yes, I
will not be able to go around and check if you are using your phones to use the translator to
make up phrases, but I hope you choose to make the right decision and choose to work on your
Spanish even if you are not continuing on with Spanish next year.
You will be able to use your phone to look up words (NOT PHRASES) in order to form your
phrases in your head. I want you to take a look at the world that the ESL students have to deal
with EVERYDAY, not for a week, but a whole year. So, we will only get two strikes, each per
day, to mess up; which means I heard you use English, or you gave up trying to figure out how to
make a sentence. I will tell you if you have a strike.
Remember, this is pass or fail. 20 points a day. 100 points total.

I will be able to construct sentences with past vocabulary, new vocabulary, pas
