s18. Intro to Spanish – Week 4


My favorite part of class today was hearing how you guys have been getting to use your Spanish with guests and in your daily life!!!

Oh yeah and here’s the other content that we covered…

Improve your pronunciation in Spanish…

Today we went over pronunciation in more detail through practicing consonants with vowels.  Why practice pronunciation?  For increased confidence; increased comprehensibility; decrease “foreignness” of the sound of Spanish to your ear.

To get additional practice with pronunciation feel free to check out these little online lessons that go over what we went over in class:

Asking where someone is from and continuing the conversation…

We also learned how to ask someone where they’re from, and ask a few more things about their origin.

Check out this handout from class: –>Where are you from and continuing the conversation<–

And follow along with this audio file to review and practice pronunciation…

 

 

Practicing your pronunciation through singing worship songs in Spanish…

If you’d like to see the lyrics to this song in Spanish AND English (it’s cool to see how the translation is similar but also different)…. here they are: –>Aquí estamos para ti – en español y en inglés<–

A little bit about the various ways to say “you” in Spanish…

We also went over these notes about versus usted versus ustedes… –>Different ways to say you<–

And discussed when this is relevant for Care Center volunteers.
