This week we were able to play a great game conjugating verbs in the present tense! All of the girls worked hard to remember the patterns that Spanish has for conjugating -ar, -er, and -ir verbs and we had fun pushing our brains and each others’. There were two worksheets (fichas) that drove a lot of the work before and during this game. Many of you have requested that they be posted here, so, without further adieu, here they are: the Crash Course and Verbos Para Practicar
¡Qué semana más divertida! We got to know each other more, set some ground rules, and did some crash course español.
Something that came up in all of the classes has been our friend Google Translate. Once again, Google Translate is NOT your friend for trying to learn Spanish. Because of the conversation that resulted from this, I am excited to offer you a better resource for looking up individual words you don’t know. It’s called Word Reference and you can find it here. I love it because it not only provides a translated word, but it also includes idiomatic expressions and phrases related to that word (SUPER COOL!).
Espero que tengáis un buen fin de semana, hasta lunes.
For our first assignment, please prepare a short presentation, 1-2 minutes, en español, about yourself. This doesn’t need to be anything more than a simple verbal presentation, but if you would like, you may bring a visual aid.
In your presentation please include:
Where are you from?
3 fun facts (what you like to do, what’s your favorite class, or whatever you want us to know about you).
These will be presented on Friday September 18th. I can’t wait to hear what you’ve prepared!
