Reported story

Our Language teacher, Pilar Pando, asked us to look for an article online or in a newspaper. Also find 4 vocabulary words.

This is the article that I chose.

The following 4 words are the one that I thought could be helpful to understand the article better and also to apply them in the class:

Morbidly or Morbid:  Characterized by an abnormal and unhealthy interest in disturbing and unpleasant subjects, especially death and disease.

Prader Willi disease: A syndrome characterized by severe hypotonia (floppiness), poor suck and feeding problems in early infancy followed later in infancy by excessive eating that, if unchecked, leads gradually to huge obesity.

Supported living: Supported living is defined as persons with disabilities living where and with whom they want, for as long as they want, with the ongoing support needed to sustain that choice.

Bungalow:  A low house having only one storey or, in some cases, upper rooms set in the roof, typically with dormer windows.

Even though it is not a very recent post, I thought this article was very different and talked about a topic that I wasn’t even aware existed.
