From day one, students wanted to know how to obtain information from me and to give instruction to others but, were a little intimidated to express themselves in Spanish. I began these questions, commands and expressions as a way to give every student a common foundation for communication starting on day one. If they enrolled after we had finished with all of them, I gave them the complete set with key so they could join in on the fun. These topics withstood the demands of time and class levels and served their purpose well for over 25 years. Many of these expressions were developed by popular demand and used and loved by the students who came after.
There are lots of fun expressions and students will appreciate having something extra to say to each other and happily “own” a quantity of expressions that they can use on a daily basis in the classroom. Since this is an introductory activity, it is an excellent place to work on the Spanish sound system. The “abecedario” will compliment this activity and this will support your efforts teaching the Spanish alphabet.
You will have days where you get creative and figure out ways to combine or alter the questions and expressions by substituting or bringing in some of your own personalized vocabulary and there are many underlined words with a word (in parenthesis) that can be substituted for words that are more common to your area
