This week you’ll learn some nouns that can be made into adjectives by adding a -y to the end. As usual, we’ll have two main parts. First, I’ll give you the definitions for this weeks' words. Next, I’ll show you a video story that uses these words. This week, the video story will star my new friend, little Heidi!
Watch this week’s video on YouTube below. Be sure to watch the video to the end for a funny outtake!
Here are the 20 words for week 4. You may know some of these words already. However, it’s very important with vocabulary that you practice the words that you already know in addition to learning new words. This is all good practice and will help your language skills. All these definitions are from the Merriam-Webster Learner’s Dictionary, which is highly recommended for English language learners.
