Product Description
This exercise for beginning Spanish students fosters making educated guesses and detecting patterns in unfamiliar grammar and vocabulary. Two phrases or words are given with meaning, and students are invited to use the pattern established in the first two examples to infer the meaning of the last word or phrase given.

Example: If "dame" means "give me" "dime" means "tell me" and "abrazo" means "hug" what could you reasonably conclude that "abrazame" means?

Includes six such questions and an example.

The purpose is to encourage critical thinking skills in language learning, instead of relying on teacher or dictionary to introduce new vocabulary.

Can also be used to teach generalizations and conclusions, for students preparing for the ACT.
