E2Kon 5 is coming!
This next Kon will deal with the deep understanding of the written word. Because it is not enough to read the text and get the "jist" of the meaning, we need to study the sentence structure and punctuation. By examining text and analyzing the written word, we will elivate our comprehension skills while we better our conversational skills!
The first step toward fluency in English is to understand the nuances in a sentence. To do this, we will read text in class and discuss what the punctuation does in a sentence, its function and meaning; we'll also examine the options of the author and why s/he chose the words they did.
