We then described films and used some interesting vocabulary

We then, in groups, produced our own films using some more vocab

We also talked about superstitions

For homework we had to do the exercise on page 14, "Le gusta, no le gusta"
This is practicing saying "she likes/ he likes" for which we need the pronoun "le"
