Not a whole heck of a lot to write about since we will not be able to visit our family this week. I guess I could just include some details from our last visit. We were able to secure a Tigrinya to English phrasebook and dictionary for the family, which is super awesome because they’re so hard-working that I think they will put the resources to extremely good use. I mean, in almost any language class, no matter how basic, a dictionary is usually required. It’s almost a necessity for learning a language. That way, if we make worksheets for them or give them a workbook and they get confused about what it’s saying, they can look up the word in the dictionary, and then they don’t have to wait to have someone with them to tell them what it means. I think it’s really awesome how a pretty basic resource can (hopefully) have a big impact. I will be excited to see how they put them to use. Hmmm…let’s see, what else. Oh, I was able to secure 7 Joyola tickets for the family + 1 volunteer. I tried to get 9, but they wouldn’t let me. (I guess that was just a little too much, but at least I tried :]). I’m looking forward to the last few remaining visits of the semester and also really really hoping that we will be able to continue visiting our family in the new semester. If we are able to, that will definitely be something to be thankful about.
