English Unit 3 reflection

I used to think that learning about the different perspectives would not change the way people look at the world. Whereas after learning about how to be more open minded and how to listen to each different perspectives my thinking as changed. Now I think that by knowing the different perspectives it helps to be more open minded and to learn more about the things around us. Also I have learned that it helps us to be more inquired about life. 6b982e3d1cf7368f1b1f2e849e85019e

Spanish reflection- Unit 4

There are few things I have learnt thought the whole unit. The first thing I have learnt is how to use commands. The second thing I  have learnt is how to conjugate in the future tense. The last thing I have learnt in this unit is how to use the reflective.

Through this unit I was able to learn some new learning habits that were useful. The game called password we played in class was very useful. It is because it helped me to figure out if I really knew that new vocabulary or not.

My goal for the next unit is to be able to study constantly at home so that I don’t forget the new things I have learnt in class.
