The Befana arrives
January 6th: Well today was another busy day in the classroom. We listened to a story about a ghost and then wrote our own endings. I was working with Giocamo(Jack). We then concentrated on the use of passato prossimo. We revised prepositions and also completed an interpretation of a song by Cesare Cremonini called Latin Lover. We were given a board game that can be used to teach the imperative to students.
After the lessons were over for the day we all gathered in the plazza to watch the descending of the Befana from the bell tower in Piazzo Duomo. The plazza was crowded and there were many firetrucks in attendance. Everyone was out and about dressed up to the nines. We saw many beautiful fur coats but not too many people from the animal rights groups...just as well!Rosemary had an excellent view from her window.
