SPANISH CONVERSATION 1
We are mixed ability & we learn from one another taking turns to lead the class. In the past we have chosen subjects to talk about for the next week so we could prepare and read from our notes if we wished.
We have done role play - in a restaurant, on the phone, asking directions & some weeks we talked about what we had done during the previous week. We also look at verb tenses, the use of ir & tener & Spanish idioms. We have read short passages to improve our pronunciation sometimes from Living Spanish & listened to Spanish CDs and Slow Spanish Oration with notes that we can download from attachments sent by Email. At present we have a native speaker who comes along to the class to enlighten us and correct our faults.
