Let’s wrap it up! Lessons 1 – 5.

Every 5 lessons we will dedicate one lesson to sum up all we’ve learned in the previous 4 ones. To make learning a reality we need to review all of our previous knowledge so nothing gets left apart!

Think of learning as a house construction. To build a house correctly, we have to make sure that the bricks at the bottom are well settled, so we can keep on building in order to our house not to fall down. We are therefore the builders of our own learning process.

Let’s keep building then!

In the first lesson “Ser, estar y tener. Describing locations in Spanish” we learned personal and possesive pronouns, we learned the three basic Spanish verbs ser, estar, and tener and how to conjugate them. We also learned how to describe our city using these three verbs, and added extra vocabulary in our lesson of Spanish Vocabulary: places.

In our second lesson “Personality adjectives in Spanish” we learned how to describe people by their personality and character, and positive and negative adjectives.

In our third lesson “Physical descriptions of people” we learned how to describe people using adjectives of physical appearance. How people are and how do they look. We also had the chance to practice with some exercises.

And finally, in our fourth lesson “The numbers” we learned to count up to millions, some interesting facts about measurement units and the difference between the United States Customary Units and the International System of Units.

Not only that, but we also learned how to manage ourselves with quantities when dealing with money (Survival Guides: Banks and Money) and had interactive exercises and an infographic to make it even funnier!

Today, we have a battery of interactive exercises for you to practice and realize how much Spanish you know already!

There are many accents in Latin America, every country has its own accent. The variety of accents do nothing but enrich their linguistic heritage. Even though the Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America share the same language, accents can be very different and tricky. That is why the last exercise will be a bit different and we bring you this video for you to get familiarized with so many accents! don’t worry if you don’t recognize them at first, you’ll with time. Try doing the exercise the video proposes.
