Languages and their function - Eight Class
How did the class go?
Today, there was a bit of confusion in the class about who was to present. Some students were asking the teacher to give a lecture on the topic first before asking for anyone to present. Since no one was ready with their presentation, Eak sir decided to start a new topic ‘The Uses of Language’.
As usual, the teacher asked us our understanding of the topic of Language. He askes us what language is and how languages are different. After gathering general ideas such as language is a means to communicate, Eak sir then started the discussion on the types of words and types of sentences.
He also shared his way of understanding the types of words which I was not able to grasp due to a poor internet connection.
I was disinterested by the argument of my classmates on whether the teacher should teach the topic first before asking any students to present. For me, student presentation on any topic and teacher's feedback to add any missing points was a well-working strategy. I still remember the contents of my presentation about arguments.
Further, the new topic was entirely based on grammar that I was introduced to in my primary school. I was shocked to find out how little I remember about the basic grammar uses.
