I was speaking correctly; my husband- solely using infinitives; Каte- present participles; the German friend was misusing modal verbs every now and then. In spite of this, everyone seems to get each other perfectly well.
As for me, i got desperate.
The question arises: Why on earth to teach Verb tenses and aspects, subjunctive, modals and like? All can get on well without it.
И вообще, темно, сыро и зима впереди((((
