Getting started with Spanish 2

Week 2: Everyday activities


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

You will see that this week introduces quite a bit of new vocabulary and grammar, especially the conjugation of new verbs in the present tense. It is really important that you learn these, as there is nothing more frustrating when learning a new language than starting to say a sentence and getting stuck because you can’t remember the word or the verb form you need!

Have you got a good dictionary? Do you use a dictionary online? You might need to refer to one for at least one of the activities this week, so think about how you plan to look words up when you need to. There are many online dictionaries available, or perhaps you prefer to use a printed version. Either way, find a dictionary that suits you and that is also reliable and accurate.

Enjoy the week!
