    Hey Franziska,

    I think you wrote a good summary. You used just the main information and there aren´t any details, you could leave out, in it. You wrote in present tense, but next time you could write a general exposition sentence to describe the general theme of the chapter.

    hey Franz von assisi🙂
    A little joke🙂

    At first I want to say that your text is very good, but there is a little mistake.
    If someone reads the story who does not know how the story is about has a problem to understand which henry is henry senior and which henry is the young.
    The next point is that you summarize the feelings of henry senior.
    Stick the facts!

    Hi Franziska,

    I think this was a good summary of the chapter. When you write the summary of a text or book make sure you start with title and author (you wouldn´t start with 3rd chaper or sth like that then.) You should try to give the overall topic in the introductury sentence then, like here I would rather say: it is about a day at work for Henry, the first day he meets his boss. (language: goes to work with a lot of enthusiasm).
    careful: present tense: he leaves the family
    structure your texts into paragraphs: last part about the family is a new part!

    I think that it is clear when you are talking about young and old Henry, so I do not agree with Tatjana in that point.

    Greetings, Kn
