Things have been going along well with my project. In my last post I talked about learning numbers and the alphabet. The numbers are coming along very well, but the alphabet has proven to be very difficult.
The letters aren't like anything I've ever seen before and I have a hard time making them stick in my brain, but the numbers seem to be sticking very well. I can recite up to fifty off the top of my head.
Last week in class (well, the two days we were in school) we talked about Ted X talks. Each of us are going to have to give one at the end of the year. Personally, I am terrified by that thought, but I'm just going to have to get over it.
Mr. Provenzano showed us a video of a kid who gave an AMAZING Ted X talk. I don't believe that mine will even compare to him, but as I begin to plan my speech I am going to try to make mine just as good as his. I plan to talk about how important it is to learn about other cultures. I am going to research being bilingual and talk about how important that can be. English is not the only language in the world and Greek is just one of the many amazing languages you can learn.
I believe that planning my speech is going to be one of the most difficult parts of this project, but I'm going to do my best to make it the best speech out there.
