Many of you have asked for the site for Word Reference again to help you with your homework for Friday. Remember, keep it simple! I want you to start with small ideas and get those on paper. The more we practice our Spanish, the more we’ll be able to talk about, but for right now, let’s use the words in our dictionaries and the adjectives that I gave you today in class. If you need anything, please send me an e-mail or come see me in the Cascade Room.
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.
