2.en.50 From “Boy” to some biographical data about Roald Dahl

Today we did a short dictation, the opening lines of the chapter “homesickness” from Boy. You did pretty well and I have already received a recording from Claudia. Well done! I’M IMPRESSED.  Claudia does not procrastinate. However, Claudia, check  the syllable where the stress of the word develop falls in  and  you might also check the word appendicitis.

Claudia’s recording.

Unfortunately,we  cannot publish audio files from Aviary in castigate2. Go to Saps què te dic, 2.en.61 and you’ll be able to listen to some of your calssmates recordings: Emil, Sara and Daryl

Anyway, I found in slide share a very useful presentation about Roald Dahl. It does not include information about who the author of the power point presentation is but it will help you learn something about the author of “boy”

Now, Check his website and listen to Dahl talking about how he creates his characters.
