First person in That Eye, the Sky 2: Summarising the characters

Summarising the characters

See you next time

That’s the end of this lesson. Short and sweet!

What you’ve seen is a similar technique to the previous lesson: simple statements followed by expansions, some of which are subjective commentary and value judgments.

Why did we do this lesson when it was so simple?

  • It gave you the chance to practice the same statement:expansion pattern again.
  • The summary description in this lesson is a good contrast to the expanded descriptions in the next couple of lessons.
  • And we need those background characters later!
