Evelyn doesn’t feel like she is improving, but definitely is. Her main concern is that she doesn’t have a good enough language environment outside of class, so it will be important to assign homework to review the vocabulary and grammar discussed in class, and also to talk about things that she can read/watch/listen to outside of class.

Class Notes from today:

e.g. Evelyn’s boss gives her lots of busywork, and none of it is good for career experience.

e.g. I am looking for a career in the radio industry. I started as an assistant and now I am a manager.

Tense / Stressed – when you have a problem you don’t know how to solve and it makes you feel anxious, makes your heart feel tight
e.g. Having a bad coworker can make work very tense.
e.g. I feel stressed at work because I can’t work with my coworker.
