Speak Chapter 25 Summary
All Together Now
- Even though the Spanish teacher isn't supposed to be speaking English to the class, she does. But only to tell them that if they don't do better on their homework, they'll all be sent to detention.
- Melinda doesn't want detention, so she does her homework. She picks five verbs to conjugate. She picks, "to translate," "to flunk," "to hide" and "to forget" (25.3-6).
- (She doesn't tell us the fifth verb. Be sure to look at your book to see the words in Spanish!)
