La rutina diaria – Martes el 3 de febrero

February 4, 2009 – 12:22 pm
Today we leant about routine and started unit 6 (p.49). See the powerpoint attached for vocab.rutina-diaria Please note that there are lots of reflexive verbs. A reflexive verb expresses an action you are doing to yourself. For example: lavarse meant to wash (yourself) if you wash the car it is just lavar without the 'se'. Eg. Me lavo, te lavas, se lava, nos lavamos, os lavais, se lavan LIstening exercise ex.4 p.52 to practise and writing ex.4p.105. We also revised lots of irregular verbs including irregular first person and radical changing verbs. Eg. salir, to go out--> salgo; poner, to put --> pongo; hacer, to do --> hago and dormir, to sleep--> duermo; volver, to come back --> vuelvo (ex.1 p.105) Homework: ex. 10 and 11 p.108
