BTN Term 3 Greece In Trouble (comparing)

In my BTN my 3 recalls were Greece are having money troubles, the prime minister has excepted money from other countries apart of the european unions and austerity leads to rising taxes, fewer jobs and less pay.

In Daphne’s BTN she said Her recalls were Greece doesn’t have as many jobs any more/opportunities. The comparison is we are both talking about jobs. Her second one said  the prime minister of Greece has accepted money from other countries apart from the European Union. The comparison is that we both said Greece has excepted money from the European unions. Her last recall was Greece is having so money problems.

Her understandings were the  Greeks in Greece are upset and angry because of Austerity that leads to less payment for jobs, fewer jobs and rising taxes. The comparison is that we both wrote about austerity and what it leads to.her last understanding was in Greece they are having money problems/trouble because they have used to much money. The comparison is that we both said they have spent to much money and that is why Greece does not have a lot of money.

Lastly her question was will Greece ever recover from these financial problems. Mine was how long will it take until greece can get more money and pay back the loan? The comparison is we are both asking how long it will take for them to get more money working.
