    The following story will further clarify the meanings of the vocabulary words and aid in their pronuncation in Session #3-Level 2. Click on the Sam character image below to hear an AUDIO of the current level story. Use this link to return to all puzzles & activities for these roots

    When a DELEGATE admitted an INDISCRETION that was INJURIOUS to a COLLEAGUE, he resigned from his position. No one could DISCERN any JUSTIFICATION for his misconduct or CONJURE why he acted inappropriately. Even ALLEGED misdeeds could disrupt the LOYALTY of members. Each person did ASCERTAIN that DISCREET actions were imperative and vowed for a READJUSTMENT in attitudes.

    Please NOTE: Two words spoken in this audio (ascertain and indiscretion) are actually Advanced words. In the second story below, the words "discriminate" and "unconcerned" have been substituted in place of "ascertain" and "indiscretion."
    Read the next story without the audio assistance.
    Vincent will DISCERN and then ALLEGE that a COLLEAGUE who works in the government has committed a serious oversight. It will not be necessary to CONJURE up more evidence against the DELEGATE. Vincent is UNCONCERNED that the process requires DISCRETE steps of inquiries regarding such INJURIOUS behavior. As a result, he will not make any READJUSTMENT in his allegation. Members of the delegation who can DISCRIMINATE between truth and falsehood know there is plenty of JUSTIFICATION to report the incident. Vincent continuously shows LOYALTY to ethics in his department.
