People and family

In this course, we will learn how to describe people and their appearance, and how to talk about family members. We will also practise colours and useful phrases for when you go shopping for clothes. In terms of grammar, we will learn how to use number + partitive and verb + partitive combinations, among other things. In addition, we will practise word stress in pronunciation.
