Hello everybody!!

First of all, I want to apologise for not have written the journal yesterday. I completely forgot about it, because yesterday I had an exam in the corsevatory that lasted two hours, and I want the forgiveness from all of my classmates and from Paqui too. And after this apology, I'm going to write my third journal in the blog.

Yesterday, when we arrived to class, the first thing that we did was check and see our exams. I had a 8.75 in this exam. I liked my mark, it was better than in the first exam, but I know I can do more. And then, after revising our exams and talk a little about them, Paqui collected them back and gave to us our notebooks. I had a 7 in my notebook mark. That was so low for me and I decided that the next term I have to require more myself because I can do the things much better. After talking about our marks and our califications, we asked Paqui if she was going to say the final marks of the term, but she said that she would give them the next day, meaning today. Then, we saw a video of a very particular History teacher from the US called Tom Richey.This teacher makes videos explaining different periods of History, and he has made some videos explaining the French Revolution and all its phases. Although, he has made videos from other periods of history, for example on his YouTube Channel you can find a video about "The Thirty Years' War", other about "Mercantilism", another about Martin Luther King, etc. In the video that Paqui put in class he talked about the National Assembly, which was created in June 17th, 1789 after the Estates General. He explains so well and ofers learning in a different way as the one we are used to. When the video finished, we started correcting some exercises of the Moderate Stage of the French Revolution, the first of their stages, which was divided into the National Constituent Assembly and the National Legislative Assembly. But we didn't have time to correct all of them and we have finished correcting them today.


I attach this image for you because I like how it explains all the Stages of the French Revolution in spite of we haven't studied all of them yet.

Hello,

The image you included is OK to see the duration of the different stages of the revolution and some important facts of every stage.

These are my corrections:

Hello everybody!!

First of all, I want to apologise for not having written the journal yesterday. I completely forgot about it, because yesterday I had an exam in the conservatory that lasted two hours, and I want to ask for the forgiveness of all of my classmates and (from) Paqui too. And after this apology, I'm going to write my third journal in the blog.

Yesterday, when we arrived to class, the first thing that we did was check and see our exams. I had (a) 8.75 points in this exam. I liked my mark, it was better than in the first exam, but I know I can do more. And then, after revising our exams and talking a little about them, Paqui collected them back and gave to us our notebooks. I had a 7 in my notebook mark. That was so low for me and I decided that the next term I have to be more self-demanding because I can do the things much better. After talking about our marks (and our calcifications), we asked Paqui if she was going to say the final marks of the term, but she said that she would give them the next day, meaning today. Then, we saw a video of a very particular History teacher from the US called Tom Richey.

I hope everyone agrees with their mark and have had a good term.


Remember: agree/disagree. We say I agree/ I disagree. We can't say "I'm agree". This is wrong.

That's all. I also hope that you will be more self-demanding this term. Bye!
