Review Lesson 16

Hello! We have learned a lot in these last few lessons. Let us take a moment to review what we have learned.

First, we learned to use the preposition "through". The preposition “through” has many meanings. It can mean in at one end, side, or surface and out at the other. Using its literal meaning, we could say "David drives through a tunnel every day". The preposition "through" is also used for less obvious meanings. It is also used to mean past, or beyond. Using the preposition "through" in this way, we could say "David went through a red light yesterday". It is also used to mean: from one to the other of; between or among the individual members or parts of, like in the sentence "Jennifer goes through the office assignments every morning". The preposition "through" also means: over the surface of, by way of, or within the limits or medium of, such as in the sentence "The airplane flies through the air." The preposition has a usage in time that is analogous to its literal sense. It means: during the whole period of; throughout. We might say "The work group worked through the night". It can mean: having reached the end of; done with. For example, we could say "David got through his work". It can mean: to and including. For example, we use the preposition "through" to show inclusive days, months or years such as in the sentence "Jennifer works Monday through Friday". Sometimes the preposition "through" can be used to mean: by the means or instrumentality of; by the way or agency of. For example, we could say "Jennifer got her promotion through hard work". Sometimes the word "through" is used to mean: finished. In that case, we can say "I am through with my work."

Finally, we learned how to discuss meals and food. We learned the names of the main meals and daily vocabulary related to meals, a few common foods and drinks, and we reviewed some verbs and learned a new verb connected with eating and drinking. We learned the three main meals: “breakfast” in the morning, “lunch” or “dinner” at midday, and “supper” in the evening. We say that we "eat breakfast, eat lunch," and "eat dinner", or we "have breakfast", "have lunch", and "have dinner." We also learned about smaller amounts of food known as “snacks”.

Great! Now that you have reviewed each of these concepts, you have reinforced the knowledge you have learned thus far.
