WARNING: You were very talkative on Monday in spite of my warnings. Please , remember you´re here to learn English and since this is not a bar or a café ,you have certain duties and one of these is that you have to remain silent when the teacher is speaking. I wouldn´t like to take serious action , so take notice of this.
- Homework: Grammar, unit 14, wk: p.15
- Reading: A photocophy titled "It was a cold, dark, night".A predicting story using the simple past and the past continuous.
- Listening and reading: As you had problrms with the last listening we had done on Thursday , we did it again. St.B.p. 19 . "The lovers of La Bastille". First, we read the introduction and then the listening activity.

- Homework: A drawing for you to describe (you can star on Tuesday and the deadline is Thursday, this means everybody have to do it that day) ,grammar , unit 106.

- Grammar: Grammar, units 38,39,40 about conditionals and the structures "Iwish; if only". We just did the activities I was most interested in , the remaining exercises were left for homework. This activity took us longer than I expected because of the writing and speaking practice. More conditional exercises and their answers.
