Clase de Conversación: el 6 de agosto 2022

Updated: Aug 5

Optional: students can prepare and bring their own questions related to Topic of the Day. This helps move the conversation along and also gives students practice forming sentences and using new vocabulary. Be prepared to not only ask your questions, but also answer them.


Topic of the Day - What would you do?


We'll be using the conditional tense in clase today. The conditional can be thought of as the equivalent of using "would" in English. Some examples:

Yo comería = I would eat...

Nosotros compraríamos = We would buy...

Ellos irían = They would go...


Some questions to get us started:


¿Qué harías con un millón de dólares?

¿A dónde irías?

¿Qué comprarías?

¿Te mudarías?

¿Qué harías con tu tiempo?

¿Seguirías trabajando?

¿Tendrías nuevos hobbys?

Si tuvieras la oportunidad de estudiar otra carrera:

¿Qué estudiarías?

¿Qué harías?

¿Por qué?

Si tuvieras la oportunidad, ¿escogerías regresar al pasado, o ver el futuro?

¿Qué verías en el futuro?

¿Dónde visitarías en el pasado?

Si fueras un animal, ¿cuál serías?

¿Por qué?

Tu amigo te pide ayudar planeando una fiesta.

¿Qué harías para ayudar?

¿Cocinarías algo rico? ¿Qué cocinarías?

¿Invitarías a la gente?

¿Escogerías el sitio? ¿Dónde sería?

¿Ofrecerías tu casa para la fiesta?

¿Decorarías? ¿Cómo?

¿Planearías algo extravagante o algo sencillo? ¿Por qué?


These questions are ideas to get us started, but keep in mind they are only a starting point - and we don't have to get through all of them! Teacher and students ask follow up questions and provide additional information to keep the conversation going.

Feeling nervous about Conversation Class?

Think about how you would answer the questions above. Look up some words before class.


Prepare a few questions to ask your partner: when you ask the questions during conversation instead of always answering the questions, it can help you feel in control. It also gives you a break from speaking.


Need more of a challenge?

Prepare questions that get you out of your comfort zone, and be prepared to answer them as well. Use these questions with the teacher for level-appropriate conversation.


Remember:

We are all here to practice our Spanish and feel more confident in a new language. Mistakes are expected, and it's how we grow!


Nos vemos en clase. :)
