Lesson 20 A Buffet exercises A) on Lessons 19, 20 ( Step 1.), 20 (Step 2.)

1. Recite  aloud , the verb and the noun/pronouns in combinations. For example,    


                                                                    सः पठतु,  तौ पठताम् ,  ते पठन्तु ,
                                                                सा पठतु,  ते पठताम् , ताः पठन्तु
                                                               तत् पठतु ,  ते पठताम् ,  तानि पठन्तु |

                                                               त्वं पठ, युवां पठतम् , यूयं पठत |
                                                               अहं पठानि, आवां पठाव, वयं पठाम |



2. Replace the verb and then do the same exercise over again with गम्(गच्छ >), पा (पिब ), लिख्  , वद् , खाद्  |
Please say it out loud. That's the only way to train yourself to use the correct combinations. Also try and picturise the table in your mind. Visual memory goes a longer way in helping you to recall.
3. Study the Supplement section carefully. The राम , वन , माला and the pronouns should also be stacked firmly in your memory bank.
4. Read the following example: Ram drink water. And then translate it into both--राम ,भवान् जलं पिबतु | and राम , त्वं जलं  पिब |

Do the same for--
1. Sita, sit here.
2. Lakshman, eat this fruit.
3. Keshav, do not go to the garden now.
4. Read this book.
5. Speak.
6. Tell the story to the girl.
