  3. María del Mar. Tú míralo tal como está puesto en el blog. TE PONGI UN EJEMPLO:

    AFIRMATIVO: I was on the beach
    INTERROGATIVO: (Sólo tienes que poner al revés las palabras "I" y "WAS" (o "WERE" para las personas "YOU", "WE" y "THEY". Ejemplo: Was I on the beach? / Were You on the beach?

    NEGATIVO: Como dices, "WAS NOT" y "WASN'T" es exactamente lo mismo. Puedes elegir el que más te guste. Ejemplo:
    I was not on the beach (si lo prefieres, puedes poner "I wasn't on the beach"). Es lo mismo.

    ESPERO QUE TE HAYA SERVIDO DE AYUDA. SI SIGUES TENIENDO DUDAS, DÍMELO MAÑANA EN CLASE. BYE-BYE, MARÍA DEL MAR! :)
