Fourteenth class (May 20th)

Please note!

There will be no class next week. (May 27th is Memorial Day, a holiday at UR.)

Class will resume on June 4th.


We began chapter 11 and addressed questions about ekzercoj 11.1 - 11.3.

Chapter 11 formally introduces some important elements of grammar for the first time. After completing the first half you should now have some experience with:

  • The reflexive pronoun si, and its use as the possessive sia. The most important thing to remember is that these words are never part of the subject of their verbs; they only refer back to the subject.

  • The suffix -ig, which expresses a “causing” or “bringing about” of an action or state.



Read the second half of chapter 11, solve exercises 11.4 - 11.6, and answer the demandoj about the dialogue. If you have time in your week off, read further in Gerda malaperis!, which we’ll talk about more on June 4th.
