For this sixth meeting, as many teams have done, we decided to hang out in Pyynikki observation tower. The weather was so bad that we thought about meeting at a place where we could be warm and talk calmly.
We went through differente verb times: past, present perfect, past perfect… The main aspect to highlight is that germans don’t use the past simple to refer to actions in the past that were completed, but the present perfect. Sam told us that many german speakers wouldn’t even know how to conjugate some verbs in past simple. The use is more literary.
I had to leave really early because this time I was pretty busy but I could just hear and learn those tenses and teach Sam, with my mexican colleagues, the same grammatical aspects in Spanish.
