Since the wife in our family was a journalist back in Benin, Jessica and I took her to the ABC 7 news studio to stand outside the windows and watch the broadcast. She seemed really tired when we first picked her up, but once we got downtown she perked up. She was telling us the French words for different things in the newsroom and described them in English until we understood. Her English is really improving! Once the broadcast was over, we looked at the window displays at Macy’s. We went in for a while to look at their Christmas tree and work on some vocabulary. I’m really glad that we took her downtown since we’ve been staying in their apartment a lot and it wasn’t too cold out. But she did seem really tired. I think part of it is that she’s really frustrated with her English teacher. She always tells us how her teacher doesn’t teach well and never corrects her homework. We always go over her homework with her and she understands really well, but I can see that she has to try even harder to make up for what her teacher lacks.
