Persuade me in Spanish! Two examples

I’d like you to come on holiday with me. I fancy a road trip to take in some beautiful countryside, a steam railway and finish it off with a day at the spa. Can you persuade me to do something even better than that? Let’s look at the vocab and the language, and study together to raise our nivel de español. ¿Vamos?

Your challenge, should you choose to acceptarlo, es escribirme sobre lo que vamos a hacer de vacaciones juntos. Use plenty of future tenses, and remember! Make it persuasive, or I won’t come!

La idea es aumentar nuestro nivel de español. Do you have any favourite phrases from today’s lesson? Make a note, and share the best ones in the comments.

Hasta la próxima,

Ruth 🙂

La idea es escribir sobre tus preferencias, reconociendo lo malo de lo que te gusta y lo bueno de lo que no te gusta. If you would like to share your work, email me, or simply put it in the YouTube comments. Podría ser valioso y entretenido para nuestra pequeña comunidad leer sus ideas.

Lesson 1: Words you know!

I teach español to children who have eleven or twelve years, once o doce años, and I want to share what I am doing with you.

You might be a school teacher or you might be a home educator.  Lo importante thing to know is that you don’t have to speak español yourself to deliver these clases to your niños … it is perfectamente posible to learn with them as we go along.  If you have any doubts please get in touch with me … I will do everything I can to help.

I am a fan of slow and steady, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring!  It just means that I recognise that other people might learn as slowly as I do, so I revisit the same words y frases throughout el curso.

¡Let’s comenzar!  Each clase lasts aproximadamente una hora, 1 hour.  Download the powerpoint, watch el video, and message me with any questions whenever you like.  I hope you enjoy estas clases as much as I do.

Un saludo,
