Tutoring with Erik wraps up next Friday. I'm making him write me a 2 page short story in french about a 500 foot monster and made a deal that if he made a good effort in being creative, and minding grammar and verb conjugation, etc etc, that he could play video games on the last day as a reward. haha Today I decided to sweeten the pot by adding a barbecue to the list. I have been making him do quite a bit verb & word drills lately, which he hates, so I think by now he deserves it. haha And after all; If you want hard work, you must provide incentive. :)
Once he's gone for the summer, I gain Young Mi's husband as a student. And I will have a total of 4 students (one on vacation) between the remaining three, five nights a week. :P This becomes a little consuming.
Tonight I am consulting almighty Google for advice on some good pronunciation and very basic greetings and phrases exercises to prepare for next week.
My brain is mush from the run.
