We're heading into the home stretch (the "home stretch" is the area between third base and home plate in baseball". This idiom means that you are almost finished something. In this case, we are almost finished out course.
Since we've finished all of our course requirements, we had a lesson on American slang today. When you use slang, makes sure you are using it in the appropriate context (e.g. who you're speaking with and the type of situation). We learned these verbs:
1. ditch: I'm going ditch class today.
2. hit up: I'll hit you up after class.
3. bomb: I totally bombed my exam.
4. bounce: This party is boring. I'm gonna bounce.
5. hang out: I'm gonna hang out with friends tomorrow.
We learned these adjectives:
1. shady: The man in front of the station is really shady.
2. ballin': She's wearing Prada. She must be ballin'.
3. down: I'm down with that.
4. lame: That's so lame. / He's so lame.
5. tight: That idol group is so tight.
Although your conversational style was a little low today (due to the difficult topics), discussions were up to 27 minutes today!! Also, group leaders include the majority of the discussion skills we've learned this semester, such as vocabulary teaching, checking understanding, agreeing/disagreeing, etc. Great work!
