Thank you, Leslie! This was a great review, and I learned new things. I need to practice my verbs, but look forward to doing so after Christmas break with my students! I currently teach in Bolivia, and though I teach in English, I communicate with my students' parents in Spanish. This course was so helpful. I'm about to go review and give feedback. Thank you so much, and have a wonderful 2019!
