The usual suspects were all in class, although SOME did not do their homework!
Today we worked on the use of the past tense with Avere and Essere. Our subjects were
people who were telling of their holiday and leisure activities.
We followed a group of people who went on a short break to London. First we heard them
describing their daily activities, whilst trying to follow them with pictures. Then we had to test
whether one of the characters remembered correctly what he had been doing.
Then followed an exercise in using Siamo or Abbiamo and agreement, taking examples from
each day of their visit.

Revision: Avere and Essere

We next meet on Wednesday May 22nd at Lynda’s house at 9.30 am.
