We also learnt the possessive pronouns in singular to use them with the members of the family:
Mi padre       à       my father                             Mis padres – my parents
Tu padre       à       your father                   Tus abuelos – your grandparents
Su padre       à       his/her father                 Sus hermanos – their brothers

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
No, no tengo hijos. – No, I don’t have any children.

¿Cómo se llama…? - ¿What’s … name?
¿Cómo se llama tu mujer? – What’s your wife’s name?

Se llama Pablo – His name is Pablo.
¿Cómo se llaman tus tíos? – What´s your uncle´s and aunt´s names?
Mis tíos se llaman Luis y Marta – Their names are Luis and Marta.

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