A1 HOMEWORK

23 Jan

Hi everybody!

I’ve been thinking about the homework for next week. We have a lot of things to finish up so you won’t have much homework.

For Tuesday, have a look at the reading on page 44 and the money vocabulary, things which were already assigned. You should also do the reading on page 46 and the grammar on page 144, which I also think were already assigned. 

We’ll try to cover all this during the week and finish the correction of other things that we have from last week. Depending on how we do, I’ll give you a little homework for Thursday, but not too much. I promise!
