Internalizing Structure

Here is another way to internalize language. I was struggling with a Korean connector that functions as ‘when’, or, ‘and then’ or perhaps ‘as’. Basically, one action is interrupted by another and, at some point, both actions may overlap for a short time.

I decided to write a series of sentences, using the same verb, to watch/see and other actions that I have experienced. I also sketched the corresponding image.  My teacher made one correction in the very last line.
