  1. Is it just me, or do others tend to speak much more English on reading days? Most of the English, during those days, comes in the form of instructions on how to read/translate the text at that moment (I try to switch it up), or as short grammar explanations. The act of translating into English makes me lose my discipline to speak in L2 the rest of the time, unless we are spinning the reading.

  2. We need the English because we are translating. The creation of an uninterruped flow of L1 as we read the L2 chorally creates a FLOW not unlike what happens when we are in L2 in a story.
    It is the interruption of same by my show off grammar personality, the guy who is in love with the pluperfect subjunctive, who can go unnecessarily into a too long grammar explanation and think it is helping them, BUT IS NOT, that I am working on. It’s the interruptions of the reading that I must stop.
