2. Donna and Bill had lunch together yesterday


Donna and Bill had lunch together yesterday. They’re both in the same Spanish class, so after class was over, they went out to eat at a restaurant. Donna ordered a big plate of french fries and Bill ordered a hamburger. They shared a milkshake.

Bill helps Donna with her Spanish. He’s a very good student, and he learns new things very quickly. He likes helping Donna because she’s a very nice person, and he hopes to go out with her more often.

Donna needs to spend more time studying, but she works in the evenings and sometimes she doesn’t have enough time to study. She doesn’t always understand the teacher because the teacher speaks entirely in Spanish and sometimes he speaks too quickly.
