This 86-slide PowerPoint "Accents in Spanish" explains the following:

  • The rules for accents and pronunciation
  • The rules for the division of syllables including "diptongos, triptongos", strong and weak vowels
  • Combinations of letters that are never divided
  • Acentos diacr­íticos (for example, the difference between "sólo"and "solo", "tú" and "tu")
  • Palabras llanas, agudas, esdrújulas and sobresdrújulas
  • Digital versions of all resources for Google platforms and distance learning

At the end of this section of the Accents PowerPoint is a cute story using most of the differentiated accents illustrated with photographs.

Each section of the Accents PowerPoint has practices immediately after the explanation for checking for understanding, guided practice and closure activities which can be used as competitions. Answers are included in all activities. Students internalize the rules by pronouncing common words as they would be pronounced without accents. They say where the emphasis is in each word and why.

This Accents PowerPoint can be used with levels one all the way to Spanish Four. The explanation of accents and practice can be used for level one. The rest can be used for level four.

Word documents include:

  • Test on all accents, orthographic and diacritic
  • A dialogue in which students must write in accents according to the pronunciation they hear
  • Instructions for a story which students must write in which they include words with "acentos diacríticos" and words without (For example: esta vs. ésta)
  • model story with "acentos diacríticos"
  • A practice activity in which students translate the sentences based on the accents and put in the accents based on the meaning.
  • Student Handout: "La división silábica; las reglas de la acentuación; las palabras agudas, llanas, esdrújulas, sobresdrújulas; los acentos diacríticos"
  • "I can" goal statements for students evaluation
  • Digital versions of all documents
