Confusing pedagogy

If you decide to re-work any of the lessons, this would be near the top of my list.

You start with all sorts of stuff that doesn't bear on the lesson (perhaps you mean for us to have a review, but I find it confusingly off topic): genders for regions, states, countries; to in English; then the prepositions for the regions.  You never mention 'dans', but then use it in first example.

For me, the 3 step principal still works: tell them what you are going to tell them, then tell them, then tell them what you told them.  The approach here is distract them from the topic by referring to previous lessons, then introduce material without explanation, and close with explanation.

It doesn't work for me.

I agree and simply scroll away from any information that is not presented in a clear and orderly fashion!
