6-5-14 Wuquan English Class

Intermediate English Class: Teaching About Homonyms with What to Wear
A good group of English speakers!
 Students share their sentences and choose the correct homonym:
  This young man really gets it!
I also learned a fabulous new game: Do You Love Your Neighbor?
The person in the center, IT, asks someone seated, "Do you love your neighbor?" 
If that person answers "Yes," then the people on either side must swap seats. If the person who is IT sits down in either chair before one of the two persons who must swap, then the person left standing is now IT.
However, if the person being asked answers "No," then the person who is IT asks, "Then who DO you love?" The person then answers, "I love people who are wearing blue (or whatever)." Then all the people wearing blue must swap to a different seat! Whoever is left standing without a seat is now IT:) Too fun!
Since the lesson for the evening focused on apparel, that was the topic of the game. 
Of course any topic an be used:)
Everyone gets to participate, it is SUPER fun!
Students also had some time to share their talents. A female guitarist with a beautiful voice:
 A friendly environment makes it easier to perform for the first time:)
 A member performs a hymn on her harmonica:
Ending with a spiritual share from the sisters about those who "were cast out of the synagogues because of the coarseness of their apparel" (Alma 32). Though they were poor in heart, how blessed were they for their humility and their willingness to exercise faith in Jesus Christ!
Our missionaries are great English teachers!
