... with a different colour and so they were certain to understand as the name cards had been printed in the appropriate colours. In fact it was difficult to tell how well they understood. They repeated the names after us but many found them quite hard words to get their tongues around. A few clearly understood and managed the written exercises, which involved putting the days of the week in the right order, but a lot were finding it hard and we were required to ...
