Week One VOTP Review!

Hi Everyone!

Did you feel the earthquake this morning? 

We have an idiom "to be shook up."  It means to be scared by something.  I don't know about you, but that shake shook me up!



 Speaking of idioms, here are the ones we studied this week in class:

  • to get the ball rolling
  • to get off on the wrong foot
  • to stay on your toes
  • to be up to something
  • to think on your feet
And we had a LOT of vocabulary this week.  You can practice it by clicking here.
You need to click on Week One Vocabulary.  Then a box comes in saying Premium.  Log in as VOTPstudent.  Your password is 750.  You should be able to do all the games and take the vocabulary test too.  If you have a problem, please tell me or email me at
And Duy used two good expressions:

Please feel free to help yourself to some coffee.

Mr. Smith is delayed.  In the meantime, I could show you our factory.

Thanks Duy!

We are also practicing pronouncing "S."  Here are some tongue twisters to help you:

  1.   I saw Susie sitting in a shoe shine shop.Where she sits she shines and where she shines she sits.
  2.   Seth at Safeway sells thick socks.
  3.   Six sick hicks nick six slick bricks with picks and sticks.
  4.   Six sleek swans swam swiftly southwards.
  5.   She saw the Sheriff's shoes on the sofa. But was she so sure she saw the Sheriff's shoes on the sofa?
  6.   She sells sea shells by the seashore.  The shells she sells are seashore shells.
