You will have the privilege of doing a “bienvenida” this term. This is a presentation of a welcome to the class.
We went over the requirements in detail. Srta did a sample one.
We signed up for days to do it. As soon as everyone has signed up – the lists will be posted in the classroom as well as on the General information page on this website.
Here is a copy of the requirements. Term 2 Bienvenida
We sang the song “El amor es un bichito” as a competition.
We started talking about comparisions.
Simple comparisons need “más or menos” and “que”.
Pick 4 famous people – they can be living or dead or real or fictional- but must be famous. (Most people would know who they are.)
Get a full sheet of paper – On the front side at the top, write the first name – below it, write 2 sentences comparing yourself to that famous person using más or menos and que. For example:
Soy más mágico que Harry.
Tengo menos amigos pelirrojos que Harry
Then drop down to the middle of the page and do the second person. Do the 3rd and 4th person on the back. Leave a large blank section between each person.
This assignment must be done BEFORE class starts next time. We are going to modify and add to it. If is isn’t done before class starts – it will drop to 1/2 credit.
