Session Summaries by Languages Tutors

Pico Rivera, CA Languages tutoring
During this session, I continued to work on the subjunctive with the student. We first reviewed the homework I left her. She did well in translating the verbs and nouns that she was familiar with, and she also conjugated them correctly. I then asked her to translate a few sentences from Spanish to English. She did very well in this exercise. After that I had her practice conjugating irregular verbs. She still has a difficult time translating some irregular verbs. I told her I would review those with her again before her final exam. For homework, I asked her to write five sentences in the imperfect tense, and five in the preterite tense to review her memory before the test.

We spent most of yesterday's lesson reviewing the student's homework, which was covering the simple future. She is doing really well with forming the future tense. Her biggest challenge with this set of homework was using context clues to figure out which tense needed to be used in fill-in-the-blank exercises. I notice that when she runs into a sentence with two or more words that she doesn't know off hand, she often gets overwhelmed and gives up on trying to figure out the sentence, but when we go word by word to figure out the context clues, she almost always figures out the meaning. After doing her homework we began reviewing for the oral portion of her final, the prompts for which she has already received. Again, she would often get discouraged and want to give up if she didn't know all of the exact words to answer one of the questions, but I encouraged her to try not to directly translate from English but instead to work with the Spanish vocabulary that she already has to express her thoughts as creatively as she can. I think she was quite encouraged to realize that she actually was able to express quite a bit using this kind of circumlocution. She is going to review the prompts, and we will continue practicing at our next lesson.

During our second session, I began keeping a list of important words that the student had trouble with; I continued that practice in this session. Whenever he couldn't remember a key word, I wrote it down. At the end of the session I did a cumulative review, which went pretty well. Using the test as a springboard, we went into a deep study of constructing the past subjunctive, especially with irregular verbs, as well as usage differences between the conditional and future tenses. He has greatly improved in using analytical processes instead of simple recall to figure things out.

We read and discussed an article on a French bill about hive collapse, pesticides, and biodiversity and an article about the Cleveland Republican convention. We went over a few French idiomatic expressions and reviewed how to conjugate verbs in the present of the subjunctive. We also had a dictation. We were able to use French during our conversations. Great session.

We reviewed liaisons with French pronunciation and also completed review exercises with the irregular verbs: aller, avoir and tre. We also practiced with numbers 0-30 which we had learned for the first time last week and continued to work on ten basic regular -ER verbs. She has a worksheet and several new review guide sets assigned for homework to be completed by our next session this Thursday. She continues to be a sincere and hard-working student, asking plenty of questions to further her comprehension during lessons.

We reviewed the fundamentals of passe compose and began using verbs with the other endings, ir and re. The student adapted to this quickly and practiced sentence writing prompts that helped him reinforce previous past tense verbs (particularly er verbs). He also practiced a few reflexives in the past tense. He is starting to understand both concepts.
