Dictionary Words Part I

Happy Saturday everyone and Happy Halloween!! This week we will start our new (and exciting!) series of videos where we closely analyze words that I thought were great spelling bee “candidates” when I read the dictionary four years ago! These words have quirky and interesting definitions, and definitely give us more insight into how the language of origin of the word influences its spelling. Enjoy!

Russian IV

Happy Saturday everyone! Hope the weekend is off to a great start 🙂

This week, we will continue our study of Russian by looking at the Russian consonant sounds. I have kept this video very informal and broad because in Russian there usually is no hard and fast way to spell a consonant sound. This way we can analyze the multiple possibilities of a certain sound and try to figure out the probabilities of each.
