About This Week

This week, we will continue with our unit, En el consultorio. We will learn how to talk about habitual and ongoing actions in the past by use of the imperfect tense. We will review the preterite tense and apply the usage rules for both of the past tenses. Being able to use the preterite and imperfect tenses in Spanish is advanced skill, so this is a topic that you will see recycled throughout your language study. Be prepared to take an assessment over preterite v. imperfect on Monday, 9/11.

We will also learn how to form adverbs from adjectives this week.

Please check the blog daily, stay current with your VHL assignments, and come to tutoring for extra support. My tutoring hours are Thursdays and Fridays from 7:45-8:15 A.M.
