What did we do?
Thomas asked us what we were doing on vacation. Andrea and her husband were on holiday. They spent a few days in Athens, the capital of Greece. Those two had a good time. Remarkable: If they had traveled a month later, her husband wouldn’t have had to pay for museum, bus, bahn and so on.
Elke wasn’t traveling, she was home. I was home, too. I and my husband have renovated the kitchen.
Then Thomas gave us one worksheet. The story war „money, money, money“. We’re working on No. 2a and 2b.

Hello dear lover of the English language,
Yesterday we met the first time after a very long break because of Corona. And so we had to talk about a lot. Unfortunately, we didn‘t talk only in English, because our English knowledge was a little bit rusty.
So we talked about the situation at schools, where two of us work, and how we survived the long time of lockdown. By the way we had to sit in a distance of 1.50m and had to use a mouth-nose -protection outside the classroom.
Oh, I almost forgot, yesterday a young man called Jan joined our course. He is a student here in Schmalkalden and he also wants to improve his English.
There isn‘t any homework for the next time.
I‘m looking forward to next Tuesday.
Have a great time and stay healthy.
