A deductive grammar lesson, practice, and conversation activity to learn the differences between saber and conocer, two often confused verbs in Spanish.
First, students review the conjugations of saber and conocer (note that both verbs are irregular in the first person singular, "yo" form)
Next, students view a graphic with saber and conocer and try to determine which verb is used according to the situation. A bank with the uses is provided to assist with this portion. When students think they have collocated each use correctly, review the correct answers as a class.
Then, there is a list of 10 questions that need to be completed with the tú form of saber or conocer. Students should complete each question with the correct verb and the answers reviewed with the class when finished.
Finally, students answer the questions and then interview or converse with a partner (or partners) about them. You can ask students to recap by sharing something they learned about their partner during the conversation (this means they will need to use the third person singular or él, ella, Ud, form of the verb in their answer).
