Let's talk in the past!
Topic of the Day - Sharing a Story / Memory in the Past Tense
Think of a memory from your childhood, the story of how you met your spouse/partner, an adventure you had with a friend, or another significant memory. What was the situation? What happened? Who was there? Why is this an important memory? Be prepared to share a story with the class and also ask other students about their stories.
Here are some questions to get us started:
¿Con quién estabas?
¿Qué pasó después?
¿Por qué es especial o importante este recuerdo?
¿Cómo conociste a .... tu pareja/esposo/esposa/amigo/amiga, etc?
¿Hace cuánto tiempo?
Be prepared not only to answer these questions, but to also ask your partner questions. Make sure that you are taking turns asking questions and giving information - just like a real conversation!
Feeling nervous about Conversation Class? Think about how you would answer the questions above. Look up some words beforehand.
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. :)
