Review Verb Vocabulary and Pronunciation Practice

  • May 27, 2014 · 6:30 PM

Dear All:
WE ARE MEETING THIS WEEK IN GARY'S HOUSE AND NOT AT THE COFFEE SHOP! He lives one block from the Phoenix. I will e-mail you the address once you RSVP. Please do so by noon on Tuesday to save us all the headache. Meeting at Gary's really helped with the noise problem we were having at the coffee shop in hearing the rest of the group. This worked really well last week! Thank you, Gary! Then we can walk over together to the Phoenix for the 7:30 group. If you are driving, you can park on Gary's street (and not have to pay for the parking lot at the Phoenix!). Our next lesson: review of verbs as vocabulary and reading practice (where we take turns reading in Spanish). We will play games and review the verb list from linguasorb (see below) to work on understanding the meaning of the verbs we are most likely to encounter. We will also conjugate them in the verb forms we have done thus far (present, preterite, and future). 

You may want to study this before Tuesday: http://www.linguasorb.com/learnspanish/most-common-verbs 

Here's how it works:
* RSVP if you want to come. You MUST RSVP so that we can make enough copies of the work we are doing for everyone! 
*You must also be signed up with the ability to e-mail you so that I can send you the address (which is a private house and, as such, will not be disclosed on the site). If you are not signed up with a link to e-mail you, please e-mail me through my link to get the address. 
*'We will work together by doing a review of the topic of the evening and some exercises. 
* If you cannot make a particular session, but wish to attend regularly, you can e-mail me BEFORE the scheduled session and I will try to make a copy for you and give it to you when next we meet. 

Confused? Contact me or catch me on a Tuesday night! 

I also started a message board on our discussions tab with ideas for those who want resources for learning/improving their Spanish. Please share ideas, whatever your own level may be!!! http://www.meetup.com/spanish-79/messages/boards/thread/43281992/#[masked]

Cheers,
Norah 

P.S. If any of the more fluent and native speakers want to come and assist, I would welcome the help!

    Josué- we were talking last time about how hard it was to do vosotros because none of us had it in school. I'm thinking about just including it in the handouts for those who are interested but skipping actually reviewing it, if that works for folks. ¿Pero puedes explicar a Chris porque no es necesario para nosotros? ;-)

    Yo le caigo... Y no pasa nada si nos olvidamos del "vosotros" a la hora de estudiar =) (mi sugerencia)

    Andrea- that would be great! I was hoping to do tongue twisters and we could use some more fluent folks to model reading them!
    All:
    Tongue twisters are a great way to work on pronunciation! Of course, I get tripped up even in English! You'll find many pages if you use your search engine of choice and type "Spanish tongue twisters". Here's something to get you started: http://spanish.about.com/cs/pronunciation/a/trabalenguas.htm
