Thursday 6pm: Summary #3
Cours du jeudi 18h: RÃ©sumÃ© #3
Last Thursday, we started out by checking last week’s new vocabulary. Then you told me about some of your plans/ new year resolutions – we will continue next week – I felt it was a good exercise, if slightly repetitive. Otherwise, we talked about where you go shopping: local shops, supermarket etc. And we had a look at the beginning of the song Comme d’habitude (the French version of My Way) which was great to check out those pesky reflexive verbs.
1) Bring your remaining sentences using the future: we will have a look at some next week.
2) 1 minute talk about what transports you use, when and why. (use only the present tense: this is about learning transportation vocab)
3) Read the sentences below and make sure you know what they mean in English (Wordreference.com can be really useful as an online dictionary!) + read through the examples of reflexive verbs
