Project Description

77749c0a

I have attached four PDFs. Two lists, one with a lot of irregular verbs that take haben, the other with (hopefully) all verbs that need sein instead of haben.

The PDF 'Mein Besuch in Deutschland' is an excercise sheet with gaps. Decide whether you need haben or sein and what the past participle will be. An answer sheet is also attached.

Of course, you can ignore them and do something completely different to practise your past participles, so for your project, just say what you are doing or will do to practise.

PS. I've now added all PDFs from the videos, which should make it easier for you to check something quickly.
