Are you a young man or a young woman?

What kind of person are you? Proverb 1: The child of a snake is also a snake.

Sometimes people are like their parents, but sometimes they are not.
Do you think the proverb is true? Tell your partner:

Unit 1:
All About Me Purpose: To learn about the first names of people. Do the girls have the same color hair?
Do the girls wear the same clothes?
Do they have different faces? Since 1953, Atlantic tropical storms have been named from lists originated by the National Hurricane Center. The original name lists featured only women's names. In 1979, men's names were introduced and they alternate with the women's names. Six lists are used in rotation. The 2009 list will be used again in 2015.

The only time that there is a change in the list is if a storm is so deadly or costly that the future use of its name on a different storm would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity. If that occurs the offending name is taken off the list and another name is selected to replace it.

Several names have been changed since the lists were created. For example, on the 2007 list (which will be used again in 2013), Dorian has replaced Dean, Fernand has replaced Felix, and Nestor has replaced Noel. What does your name mean?
Jose What does your name mean?
Stephany Taina is a change from Christiana -- this name means Christ's follower. Lesley means Holly Garden Johana Its source is Yochana, a Hebrew name meaning "God's grace." Ana: Its source is Channah, a Hebrew name meaning "Favored grace." Jose: Its source is Yosef, a Hebrew name meaning "The Lord's addition (to the family)." Two names I couldn't find:
Yency and Yojary. Alejandro: Its source is Alexandros, a Greek name meaning "Protector of men." Felix: Its source is Felix, a Latin name meaning "Happy." Javier: Its source is Etcheberria, a Basque name meaning "New house." Magdelin: Its source is a Hebrew expression meaning "Person from Magdala." Stephany: Its source is Stephanos, a Greek name meaning "Crown or garland." Ruderkis: Its source is Hrodwulf, an Ancient Germanic name meaning "Famed wolf."
