We read some books that took place in India like The Road to Mumbai and The Monsoon.
We focused on greetings ("Hola," "Como te llamas?," "Me llamo _________," "Como estas?," "Estoy __________," and "Adios."
We worked on how to sit properly at the piano.
We didn't study a composer this week because we didn't have a composer for India.

All in all it was a great week.
