Yesterday, I was too tired to write, and I hadn't summarized my problem. I need a glossary of PLE vocabulary, and another of Internet.2 vocabulary. People are giving me good advice, and I am not comprehending it.
When I was little girl, my mother signed me up for ballet lessons. I liked the teacher, and enjoyed the dancing, but I was experiencing a culture-shock (not that I knew the term). From time to time, when Mr. Ballai gave an instruction, words would blank out (as demonstrated by the teacher's WHAA-WHAAs in Charlie Brown movies). I could not understand what he wanted. But I could see what the other girls did and do it, too. Still, it bothered me that I had suddenly become unable to understand something.
One day, my mother bought me a book about Ballet. It was called Places, Please. The first sentence explained my problem. It said, "The instructions in Ballet are in French." Aha! French. So I was trying to understand them in English, but they weren't English. The slim book showed all of the positions and gave their names. The next time I went to class, I understood the instructions. I was "in the know".
Every activity that we do gathers it's own vocabulary. If you know the vocabulary, you are assumed to know the subject. This is not entirely true. It is is quite possible to know some of the vocabulary and not be able to function as a practitioner. Con men use this trick all the time. By the end of this course, I want to know the words and be able to enter into the activities, too.
