Today´s class was centered around the present and the past. We talked about life circles, things we used to do when we were little and important dates, people and places in our lives.


We reviewed a whole bunch of Idioms, among others: beat around the bush, get your hands on something, put something behind you, be a sucker for something, be thick-skinned, storm out or storm off etc.

We also reviewed prepositions of time: at, in, on.

Here are some useful links if you wish to practice some more:
