Level 2 class notes 8th September 2015

  1. Think of an animal you would like to be.
    Don’t tell anyone what the animal is.
    Now I want to you to write three adjectives that describe the character of the animal.
    Don’t write adjectives that describe how the animal looks.

For example
Dog – you could write
Loyal, clever, funny
DON’T write BEAUTIFUL, FAST, BIG-EYED

2. This is a psychological test to show (apparently) how you see your ideal self. How you want to be, so:

Rula is funny, smart and helpful.
