The Book

One of the requirements you will have to meet in order to be awarded credits for this course is that over a period of two months starting at the beginning of May you read an English book of your choice. Please make sure the title of the book you chose and your name appear in this table by 2 May.

To chart your progress and to make sure you build up some vocabulary, you will look up and write down English definitions for a total of at least 150 words or phrases from your book. In practice, I will check your list every two weeks and see to it that you have added at least 30 more words or phrases to it. The checkpoints are: 16 May, 30 May, 13 June, 27 June, 11 July.
