Reflection

You will have noticed that in your answers the form of the verb always ends in -o (trabajo, estudio, paseo, leo, escribo). That is because you are saying ‘I work’, ‘I study’, ‘I go for a walk’, ‘I read’, ‘I write’, and the ending for the first person (I = yo) of regular verbs in the present is always -o.

Listen again to each person talking about what they do in the morning and repeat out loud their answers.
