( 3 min) My Last holiday It was the summer of 2014, when I went on a holiday with a group of friends. We had bought our tickets before we agreed on meeting at the airport two hours in advance. But, on the day, when we got at the airport, we found out that two of our friends hadn’t arrived yet. We gave them a call, but no reply. We couldn’t do any more, so we took the flight and went on. To our amusement, by the time we arrived at our destination, we discovered that our friends had already booked in. When we met, they told us that they had booked their flight for 10 am, but our flight was at 10 pm. It was incredibly lucky; we had both booked at the same hotel. After we spent a fantastic time on our holiday, we decided on going on holiday every year, but all on the same flight. Answer the question below T/ F I went on holiday in 2013? I didn’t buy my tickets first? We arrived to the airport first? We phoned our friends from Istanbul? We arrived at the hotel first? Monitor the Ss. CCQ: correct the F statements ( 2 min)
