Hi Rocio,

It's Graham. (We use it's when we say who is speaking - soy yo = it's me)

I won't correct you right away. I'll wait until Ásun tries the exercise too.

If you see that she hasn't written anything, could you remind her to do it before the next class?

See you.

2.Have you got any brothers or sisters? / Do you have any...?

3.What does he do?

4.How often do you go abroad? / How many times a week do you go to the theatre?

5.Where were you born?

6.What are your hobbies? / What do you do in your free time?

7.What does he look like?

8.What was the hotel like? (What about the hotel? = and the hotel?)

9.What are you doing?

10. Both of your questions are grammatically correct but don't fit the answer. The question should be: Why are you smiling?

11.What did you do last weekend? / Did you do anything exciting on Saturday? No, we just stayed at home.

12.Did you enjoy Paris? / (Did you go anywhere for your last holiday? Doesn't really fit the answer)

13.What time did you leave work yesterday? /(What time did you go out last Sunday afternoon? Doesn't really fit the answer)

14. Where were you yesterday evening? / What did you do at the weekend? I was trying to get you to ask the question: What were you doing at six o'clock yesterday?

15.Where are you going to go after the wedding? / Where are you going to visit for your holidays?

16. Would you like to come to the cinema with us? / Would you like to see a horror film? (doesnt' really fit)

17.When are you flying? (get the flight)

18.Have you done your homework yet? / Have you cleaned the windows yet?
