Sorry about the email yesterday.  It wasn’t supposed to go out, not sure how that happen.  But this is a good point to tell you about my plans for the rest of the year.  In order to improve the program, I am only going to publish session 3 times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday), though you may not get the email until the next day.  Then on January 1st, we will start with the daily program again.


Today we have a little poem about a doll.  Here is the vocabulary that is used.  Listen out for it in the podcast.
