    Hola Sonia,

    I am uncertain if this is some kind of "professional jargon". In normal speech, it would be, "to put linguistic elements in their context".

    saludos,

    How I could say ? Consolidar lo aprendido?

    To consolidate the learned points?

    I'm sure that this sentence is not right. Could you correct me,please?

    Thanks,
    Sonia

    You can also say "to contextualize linguistic elements". At least, you can these days. Not too long ago it would have been thought too jargonistic. Come to think of it, it is, really...

    I would say, "To consolidate learnings".

    The teacher is another very useful material if we consider his/her movements, look and mime. And we can not forget his/her facial gesture to interpret expressions of taste, satisfaction or terror.

    Is the second sentence correct? I mean is there any lexical or order mistake?I can not paint in black the sentence! Well, i think the first one is right but is there is any mistake, could you tell me, too?

    Thank you very much.
    Sonia
