I'm sorry, Ulli, that your advice won't be helpful. I've already looked up 5 or 6 renowned dictionaries, but the question above is simply more than the meaning of a word.
I'm afraid that no reference materials will work to answer my question above because I have already done every look-ups that I can. My question again is to find out whether the above question is valid or not! This requires a good native teacher to analyze the context of the quoted question before giving me an answer!Originally Posted by Ulli
Once again, you'll notice that I want a good piece of expert advice if you 'read' my question above.
Thanks for your concern, though.
I'd pick NONE OF THE ABOVE, but that's not a choice. Several theories, here:Originally Posted by ggomad
1. "organize" should have a -d, organized, meaning, activities that are organized by the school and held each day. :D
It's an odd phrase, though, everyday organized activities. :(
2. everyday organizing activities seems like it's supposed to mean, each day you, the student, will be organizing activities. That can't be right! I'm paying tuition! Haha:(
3. organic activities? Hmm. You know, I've been teaching ESL/EFL for 18 years, for more than just a few educational institutions, and yet this is the first time I've come across the phrase 'organic activities'. Sounds like something to do with waste management, or, even better, someone is trying to mean, Nature~natural--outdoor activities.
Everyday outdoor activities is still the wrong word order, though. :(
4. organ activities. Hmm. Now that sounds like fun! If you were a medical student, that is. :(
Which would you pick? I like 1. and 3. best, but the word order is definitely off. :D
The sentence should read:
Their respective educational programs include intensive language instruction, as well as a full schedule of _____activities every day.
Many Many Thanks to you, Casiopea
