"The student and I worked on basic verb conjugations and basic sentence structure. It is helpful for him at this point to just learn some basic phrases that can be useful for travel and communication. He's picking it up quickly, but the challenge that comes with adult learners is always keeping it consistent. So I will be recommending and assigning regular exercises to make things go well and allow him to continue practicing. So far, things have been going well, and I'm encouraged."
"We have not met for a few weeks so we covered topics that will be on his test. Those include vocabulary (leisure activities), imperatives, expression of linking to do something (ich tue etwas gern) as well as going after conjugation of verbs and negations (nicht vs. kein). I also had him read a real life text from a handout (about a rock project) and we went over the meaning and language constructs found therein."
"In this lesson, I formally introduced the past tense in German, and we practiced making sentences about what we did during the day."
