"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

What is the Vocabulary Challenge?

LynneLynne TeachHomePosts: 9,880 mod
Each week (or so) there is a vocabulary challenge on our Moodle Site. https://learn-english-free.moodle.school/

Every so often we will revise a few of the challenges. This is a great chance to catch up on vocabulary you have missed, or to review the vocabulary you have learnt.

Keep an eye on Group Events for the link and password.

    Did I miss Vocabulary Challenge #7 last Tuesday?
    Normally you give the challenge on Tuesday and on Thursday, right @Lynne ?
  • LynneLynne Teach HomePosts: 9,880 mod
    Yes April. This week it is a chance to catch up. No new vocabulary, but all 6 units will be there.

    Today's starts at 6pm.

    @Monik - I left the images up for as long as I could. When I say 6pm, I mean CET (I always use Berlin time). Remind me to walk you through it next week.

    I also have some questions about Vocab Challenge.
    Before we used to have notification about this game on the Calendar. But now I don't know when it begins, when ends. :#
  • LynneLynne Teach HomePosts: 9,880 mod
    @Elvin - You will find the beginning and end times under Events in this group. I can't commit to a particular time, but generally it will be Tuesday afternoon / evening and Thursday morning.
  • ElvinElvin Posts: 454 ✭✭✭
    Okay, thank you, @Lynne!
    Let's go.
  • LynneLynne Teach HomePosts: 9,880 mod
    Good luck @Elvin. (We have moved the challenge to a new platform, so you will be a guinea pig. Squeak, squeak.

    Any problems, just let me know here.
  • ElvinElvin Posts: 454 ✭✭✭
    Hehe, @Lynne, I'm ready to be a part of experiments if they bring me closer to my dream of learning Elnglish. :)
  • ElvinElvin Posts: 454 ✭✭✭
    BTW, I've already done this vocab challenge, but some points were difficult for me.
  • LynneLynne Teach HomePosts: 9,880 mod
    @Elvin - that is why it's called "a challenge". :lol:
  • rupsilrupsil Posts: 544 ✭✭✭✭✭
    A question: the purpose of the challenge is to check the user's knowledge or it is possible to use a dictionary?

    Hi everyone
  • sehseh Posts: 8
    How can i take this challenge?
  • sehseh Posts: 8
    Is it only for the Skype sessions?
  • LynneLynne Teach HomePosts: 9,880 mod
    Hi Seh,

    Any member of this group can take the challenge. It runs from Tuesday afternoon to Thursday morning. You need to go to our Moodle Cloud site, and log in sometime during those times.

    The password is under "Events", but the challenge only appears at the times shown.

    Hi mr. @Lynne , is it too late to me for join this group? I think i was missed so many challenges and moments hehe
  • ElvinElvin Posts: 454 ✭✭✭
    @imam_agoes, I think Lynne would prefer "Mrs" to "Mr". :D
    Though we call her without any titles, just by name.
  • julianobastosjulianobastos Posts: 15 ✭✭
    i dont get. how do i get envolved with vocabulary challenge? It´s kind hard to understand this forum. but i´m trying though
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @julianobastos It is not very difficult. You need to understand it a little bit more. Please check this link and you will get how to reach to the right place. :)

  • ElvinElvin Posts: 454 ✭✭✭
    @julianobastos, you are not alone in this. I have been here for 5 months, and still don't understand some things. :)
  • LynneLynne Teach HomePosts: 9,880 mod
    @julianobastos - I'm so sorry, somehow the Network has grown very complicated. It's all my fault. Mea culpa. :s

    I am doing my best to simplify things. I have recently found an online tool that will allow me to record the screen again (my previous software doesn't work on Windows 10, and it is too expensive to buy a new copy). So, I will try to do a "How To" video to explain the vocabulary challenge. In the meantime, click on the link @Bubbly sent you (thanks Bubbly). And feel free to ask me any questions here.

  • Shiny03Shiny03 Posts: 2,885 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @nain_khan1 It's not easy to read the whole forum, so take your time and try to pick some topics(see above) in which you are interested. The last is just enjoy it and to get involved. :) Good Luck!
  • nain_khan1nain_khan1 Posts: 161 ✭✭
    OK I understand shiny03.
