Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"-Today we practiced things that "I see" "Yo veo...", and "I hear" "Yo escucho." We used colors, things seen around the house, and sounds that we hear every day. -We learned new feelings "I'm cold, I'm Hot", "It's hot, it's cold"."
"The students reviewed the verbs ser and estar by completing some sentences. More practice on reflexive verbs was given to them. They also practiced forming sentences in simple present tense, and they were introduced to some irregular verbs in the present tense."
"The student and I discussed the direction he would like to take for his Spanish tutoring sessions. He wants to focus on conversational Spanish. I suggested a few websites for support and will be suggesting some books also, including workbooks. I wanted to have the level of Spanish that he understands and for that purpose we went over some basic phrases, vocabulary, and verb conjugations."
"The weather conditions in Spanish were covered today. The student practiced pronunciation, writing, and listening comprehension. In a dictation, he wrote ten sentences using lots of vocabulary and different verbal tenses. His listening understanding and Spanish pronunciation has improved."
"This time we practiced talking using the past tense. The student is getting used to using this tense each time more. He still needs practice with conjugations using the past tense. Since he prefers learning while talking rather than by memorizing, then this session was ideal for him."
"This was a fun class. First thing we did was go over the student's homework. It's important to remember where the accents go. She did a good job. Then we studied the fruits in Spanish followed by typical Spanish/South American desserts. I brought the student one of these desserts so she could try it. It was "Quesillo", known as "Flan" in other countries. I hope she liked it! We also played a game of guessing to learn the Fruits. Next thing, we did some written exercises on Contractions (al, del). She committed to finish part of her homework for next class. (Sentences with Present and Preterite)."
