Class Summary Av1A - Tues/Thurs 5 to 7pm

Here you will take it in turns to write a summary of each class from January 2012 onwards.  You should include the homework set and also try to include vocabulary and corrections that come up during the class.  I will review each summary and attach handouts (only the ones created by me, not Copyrighted material).
