This vocabulary handout includes vocabulary for reactions/starters and connectors including giving reason, opinions, clarifying, extending the conversation, expressing disbelief, happiness, sympathy, disgust, reconcile, exasperation, clarify, express doubt, non interest and answering yes/no question (beyond just sí and no).
Have students start using these every time you do interpersonal activities. When someone says something to them, have them express their emotion with one of these expressions.
Also get students to state their opinion and extending the conversation.
Students have lots of fun expressing themselves with these expressions!
Start using these expressions in level 1 to help students build a foundation that will later help them not only in the real world but for the AP Spanish exam.
