Week 2: Names and introductions


¡Bienvenido/a a semana 2! Welcome to Week 2!

Described image

It’s natural to ask someone’s name when you first meet them, but you don’t always meet people in the same circumstances. Meeting a parent at a children’s birthday party is not the same as meeting the person who’s going to interview you for a job.

This week you’ll learn the formal and informal expressions used in Spanish to introduce yourself when you meet people for the first time.

Keep writing in your language notebook the things you want to remember. We’ll give you some more tips for this such as adding examples to your notes.

Enjoy the week!
