we added some verbs

We also looked at liking and disliking
me gusta cocinar - I like cooking
¿te gusta cocinar? - do you like cooking?

For the third person we use "le"

We then went on to learn about the present tense

nada - he/she swims (or "you swim" (formal - usted))
Normally we don't use the pronouns (yo, tú, él/ella) before the verbs. They are optional.

como - I eat
comes - you eat
come - he/she eats - you (formal) eat

Jugar - to play

Ir - to go, voy - I go, vas - you go, va - he/she goes
Hacer - to do, hago - I do, haces - you do, hace - he/she does

we also learned some expressions of frequency

a veces - sometimes
nunca - never

We practiced the questions...
¿Qué haces en tu tiempo libre?
¿Qué haces los fines de semana? - What do you do at the weekends?
