    Wow!  The weeks are passing by quickly.  You have read or heard some strange dialects and had to decipher the meaning.  I have provided a video below where you can actually hear me saying those phrases once again.  I know that you heard them in the story, but sometimes it becomes clearer if you hear it again. 

    You can also see what Shorthand looks like by clicking the link Shorthand Samples.  Crazy enough, I took Shorthand when I first started college back in 1991.  The samples I provided you are two very small samples of letters.

    This week you will read Act III & Act IV.  Remember, I have them recorded if you want to listen as you follow along as you read.

    You will also have a Vocabulary Activity and a Reading Quiz.

    Watch a Mrs. Maulding video (Review of Act I & II and Insights to Act III & IV) and have a great week.

    Now we have begun our reading of the play Pygmalion you have probably discovered that someone sounds a bit different, which is why you did the translating activity last week.  That dialect is referred to a Cockney.

    One of our main characters, Mr. Higgins, is a professor of dialects and has met up with another person who shares his appeal.  Together these men will start a new journey for a young flower girl.

    Before Reading Activity - British Currency of the Time
