This week’s Learner of the Week is Alina. Alina is a library prefect and a dedicated one. She’s always helpful in class and in the library, is kind, courteous and always does her homework which is why I chose her as this week’s Learner of the Week. I’ve added some new questions for our Learner’s of the Week.
