¿Estás casado? – Are you married? (If we ask a man if he’s married).

We also learnt the numbers from 1 to 20 and we talked about the family.

We also learnt the possessive pronouns to use them with the members of the family:
Mi padre       à       my father
Tu padre       à       your father
Su padre       à       his/her father
Nuestro padre à our father
Vuestro padre à your father
Su padre à their father

We learnt two basic questions about family:
¿Tienes …? - ¿Do you have any…?
¿Tienes hijos? – Do you have any children?
Sí, tengo un hijo y una hija – Yes, I have one son and one daughter

¿Cómo se llama…? - ¿What’s … name?

¿Cómo se llama tu padre? – What’s your father’s name?
Se llama Pablo – His name is Pablo.
Mi abuelo se llama Juan – My grandfather’s name is Juan

Then, we came up with our own questions in pairs to put in practice the questions and answers we learnt during this session.
