Lesson 9 - EGYPTIAN Noun Phrases (Allen Exercise)
Course Assignment:

Please find attached a file on major prepositions in Medu Netcher. I want you to purchase a pack of blank 3 X 5 note cards. As you view the file, on the front of your blank note card should be the preposition and on the back of the note card should be the definition. After you have completed making these note cards, I want you to spend 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes at night every day reviewing these and testing yourself until you feel absolutely comfortable that you know them by heart. Do not worry if it takes you a long time. Just stay consistent. Next week we will introduce prepositional phrases and hopefully begin our discussion of the most prominent sentence type in Medu Netcher, adverbial sentences.

Lesson 11 - Adverbial Sentences

Course Assignment:
Please find attached a file from Allen's grammar book on Major particles found in section 10.3 and 10.4. I went over all of these particles in the lesson, but take some time to review them in written form. I have also attached a file on suffix pronouns and their uses. For this week, I want you to copy what you see and reduce it all to 3 X 5 blank note cards. In addition to this, I want you to copy the whole chart and uses of suffix pronouns 5 times on 5 different days this week in preparation for the lecture next week.
