Hangout Details for Week 1
Okay, so during this hangout, you’ll practice describing your routine and describing yourself, as well as asking some questions
Part I – Everyone share their routines (Assignment 3) in Spanish (30 minutes)
This is pretty simple, everyone in the hangout will share their routines. If you need to use your assignment 3 and read from it, that’s fine. If you can do without it, that’s even better!
Here are a few questions you can use to ask other people more information if they don’t say it:
- ¿A qué hora te levantas?
- ¿Dónde trabajas?
- ¿Qué te gusta cenar?
- ¿Qué comes en el desayuno?
- ¿Dónde trabaja tu novio(a) / esposo(a)?
- ¿Cómo vas al trabajo?
Practice asking about each other
Just like we did for the last hangout, you can ask questions about other group members! This is great practice for matching verb conjugations with the correct subject. Use the questions from above to ask about each others’ routines.
Here are the instructions (same as last week)
For example, let´s say we have 4 people in our group: John, Sue, Bob, and Robin
John would ask Bob: Bob, ¿Cuántos años tiene Sue?
Bob would either answer:
- “Sue tiene 20 años. “
- No sé. ¿Sue, cuántos años tiene?
After Sue answers “Tengo 20 años”, Bob would say to John,
“John, Sue tiene 20 años”
Next, it´d be Bob´s turn to ask someone else a question. Then you´ll go around the room asking each other questions about each other, until everyone has had a chance to ask and answer a question.
Note: This isn´t the time to get everything perfect correct or to stress about it. If you notice someone making a mistake, kindly correct them. More than anything though, just get comfortable trying to put sentences together.
Part II – Practice Making Sentences
It seems like most people didn’t get to do this in the hangouts, so I’m adding it to this week’s hangout too.
I made a little chart to facilitate this next exercise. It may seem silly, but here’s how it will work.
Sentence Making Chart
Robin gives Bob a subject and a verb, and Bob has to make a sentence. For example, Robin gives Bob “Nosotros” and “Comer”.
Bob creates the sentence “Nosotros comemos postre.” Then Bob gives a random subject and a verb to the next person, until everyone has had a few tries forming sentences.
