Part B: Past Perfect
Tell the story of your partner’s day yesterday, starting when they fell asleep and working your way backwards through the day, e.g. “When you fell asleep, you’d already brushed your teeth” and “When you brushed your teeth, you’d already got into your pyjamas”. When you make a mistake, you get one point for each correct sentence until then and it is your partner’s turn to guess your day (also in reverse order).
What’s the difference between:
“wear my clothes” and “get dressed”?
“clean my flat” and “tidy my flat”?
“play with my friends” and “meet up with my friends”?
“hang out with my friends” and “go out with my friends”?
“wake up” and “get up”?
