We listened to an au pair describing her typical day
Dar un paseo – to go for a walk
Recoger – to collect, pick up
Planchar – to iron

We then went on to learn some reflexive verbs
These are verbs that have the pronouns “me, te, se, nos, os, se” attached.
Often these verbs have the idea of “self”, though not always in English

Levantarse – to get up
Cepillarse los dientes – to brush your teeth
Sentarse – to sit down
Levantarse – to stand up
Acostarse – to go to bed
Afeitarse – to shave
Maquillarse – to put on makeup.

To conjugate these verbs we need the reflexive pronoun – me, te, se, nos, os, se – which goes before the verb
Me llamo – I call myself
Te llamas – you call yourself
Se llama – he/she calls him/herself
Nos llamamos – we call ourselves
Os llamáis – you (plural) call yourselves
Se llaman – they call themselves

We practiced some questions using reflexives…
¿A qué hora te levantas….?
¿A qué hora te afeitas….?
¿A qué hora te acuestas…..?

For homework we had to match the adverbs of frequency on p.21, the exercise is to match the English with the Spanish translation

A veces – sometimes etc.
