We revised some vocabulary connected to technology

We looked at sinónimos

We then went on to read the text on p.8 about El Primer Turista Espacial
Some vocab….
El espacio – space
Turista espacial – space tourist
Los tripulantes – the crew
Estadounidense – Americano

We also looked at ways of answering the questions in the LC where you are asked to find an expression in the text that means the same as a given one in Spanish….on p.8ç

No tienen mucho dinero – andan escasos de fondos
Here we begin both expressions with a verb in the third person plural, ending in “n”

Habían dicho que el viaje podía seguir = había dado luz verde al proyecto
Here, the “habían” and “había” are connected, the grammatical connection can help us find the answer

Homework is to finish p.8

We then looked at the Presente tense and pasatiempos
We especially looked at the first person
Poner – pongo
Saber – sé
Conocer – conozco
Dar – doy
Venir – vengo
Decir – digo
