I have learned how to talk about my daily routine, and how I prepare for school. I also learned how to talk about my family and the use of preterite and imperfect tense. I can use the affirmative and negative tú command and talk about the weather in past tense. I can also use había and hubo properly. I can talk about different foods I bought and ate. I can also talk about my shopping experience and tell stories in the past tense. I know how to use reflexive pronouns and direct and indirect object pronouns. I can also use comparatives and pagar + infinitive. Lastly, I can speak and interact better in Spanish.
Compared to my language, Spanish uses different words for males and females. It also conjugates verbs differently with every pronoun and not just based on number like the English language. There is only one type of past tense and adjectives are formed by adding '-ly' in the English language unlike the preterite and imperfect tenses in Spanish. The sentence structure is also very different. For example, in English, colors come before nouns but in Spanish, colors come after nouns. Also, in English, there is no special way to talk about weather and when giving commands, you do not need to change the verb but add stress. Also when using comparatives in English you either add more/most/less/least or change the verb completely but in Spanish its mas ... que. Also the use of this and that is not based on gender in the English language.
The thing I found most interesting about the Spanish culture is their eating and daily habits. They eat about five times a day which is much more than we eat in the US. Also, unlike the US, different food items are bought in separate markets instead of a grocery store. The Spanish life is also more social than life in the US. Lunch is considered to be the most important meal in Spain but breakfast is the most important meal in the US. In Spain, there is a national siesta everyday and businesses close from 2:00 - 5:00pm for people to go home and rest before resuming again and staying till late at night. Lastly, Spanish food is very different from Mexican food in that it is less spicy. Paella is the national dish of Spain and I like seafood so I think I will enjoy it.
Durante el curso, tomamos un falso viaje a España. Me levanto temprano por la mañana para duchar, cepillar mis dientes, lavar mi cara, arreglar mi pelo y vestirse. Antes salí de los Estados Unidos, alquilé un apartamento por mirar los avisos clasificados en el sitio web de el agente inmobiliario y en el periódico. El apartamento era muy cómodo y cerca de un metro por tanto saliendo era fácil. El barrio era tranquilo y amable.
Cada domingo, iba a la catedral para rezar. Durante lunes al viernes, iba a la escuela donde hubo ocho clases; el álgebra, el teatro, la biología, la física, la historia de los Estados Unidos, la historia mundial, los negocios y la química. Eran muy fáciles y interesantes. Los profesores eran muy buenos. Contestaron todos mis preguntas y explicaron muy bien. El sábado iba nadaba o tomaba los fotos en el parque. También veía fútbol y la lucha libre en la televisión.
Todos teníamos diferentes que hacerse en la casa. Arreglaron el cuarto y hacían las camas. Mi madre prepara la comida, mi hermano sacó la basura y mi hermana cuidaba de las mascotas y lavaba los platos. Mi hermana y yo fuimos al mercado con nos madre a veces. Compramos la carne al carnicería, pan al panadería, pastel al pastelería y frutas del mercado de las pulgas. A veces, ella compró helado de la heladería cuando habíamos bien educada. Mis amigos en España enseñaron cocinar la empanada, el tamal, la milanesa, la paella, y el mole. En el restaurante, you siempre comi la medialuna. Para ponarse en forma, hacer aeróbicos y nunca fumar o tomar alcohol.
Trabajaba de tiempo parcial a la niñera de lunes al viernes y voluntaria el sábado y el domingo. Por eso, tenía muy poco tiempo para jugar. Asisto a muchas celebraciónes como bautizos y bodas, así que me fui de compras mucho. En el cumpleaños de mis hermanas hacer un picnic.
Un día, fui testigo de un accidente. Los coches chocaron unos a otros y hubo un inciendo. Afortunadamente, los paramédicos y los bomberos llegaron rápidamente y rescataron las victimas. Fui a la comisaría porque fui testigo. Cuando era tiempo de regresar a los Estados Unidos, compré el recuerdo para mis amigos como bolsas, cerámicas, pinturas y figuras. La mayoría eran hecho a mano y tradicionales.
I hope to learn to speak and write better Spanish if I take further courses in the language. I would also like to learn Spanish folklore, rhymes, music and the roles of different genders and ages in the society. I love history so I will want to know more about the Spanish history like its monarchy.
l took my Spanish I as an online course too so it was a bit similar. However, this course was different because I had a teacher and due dates. It was also more interactive and there were many more projects. Nevertheless, it made learning simpler and it was good to have a teacher to ask questions and RLCs every unit to get most of the information revised. The only part of the course I did not like was the use of the eLinguaFolio especially for those of us who had not done Spanish I on NCVPS and do not plan to take another Spanish course on NCVPS. I feel it should have been optional.
I liked the culture cafes and the BBC Mi Vida Loca episodes most. It made the learning experience fun and I got to learn more Spanish words and world history. I also liked the idea of a printable vocabulary sheet that comes with powerpoints that can be viewed at any time. Lastly, I like the fact that the RLCs almost make it like a face-to-face class. As I mentioned in my previous answer, I do not like the use of eLinguaFolio. I do not believe it is necessary or relevant to the course. I think NCVPS should design a software that is more tailored to the course. Also, I do not think some of the instruction was clear enough making me have to re-do some work.
I think having a teacher like Sra. Teryn Odom who was very hands on made the learning much easier. She was always there to answer questions, and sent out useful information frequently. She graded fairly and left constructive comments to help me improve my Spanish skills. I also liked the printed vocabulary sheets that made it easier to study and the RLCs. They particularly helped me a lot because I remember best when I have heard something and not just read about it. I feel like more emphasis should be made on grammar in the future because it is equally as important as vocabulary. For example, guided notes will be very useful. I should definitely spend more time on the course in the future and practice with as many educational resources as possible. I should also practice the skills I'm picking up with speakers so I can perfect them.
I think my teacher helped me best with her time, constructive comments and frequent emails about useful tips to excel at the course and understand the content. She also sent us reminders so we did not miss out on anything and answered any questions we had. I think she is a dedicated teacher because she was very patient and understanding. I think she tried her best and could not have done anything more seeing that this is an online class.
