Spanish Lesson Thirty-Three: School and Classes

Updated on September 22, 2013

Hey Readers! It's Sunday again. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend thus far. It's time for another Spanish lesson! I've decided to not be so grammar-centric these last few lessons to give everyone a break. The grammar stuff is a bit dull at times, so I figured you all would enjoy more themes. As I mentioned in the last lesson, we will be learning the Subjunctive in lesson Thirty-Five. Don't worry, it's not too complicated. It is another tense in Spanish as there are so many. Today's lesson is about school and classes. It's kinda simple on the surface and easy to learn. You'll learn about how to say certain classes, tools/supplies, etc. I hope you all enjoy it! I also invite you all to view previous lessons. Click on the link--->here.

Today's Goals: To be able to discuss the school environment as wells as supplies, classes, and teachers. To be able to understand and utilize the vocabulary featured in this lesson.

Today's Vocabulary

Hey everyone! I hope you're ready for today's vocabulary. There will be the usual hodgepodge of words in addition to the charts pertaining to this theme. I really hope that these words are helping everyone get a bit more information every time they come to a lesson. Pick a few of the vocabulary words each lesson and try to adjust to using them. A lot of these words I've learned for the first time, so I'll have to go back and review them on occasion. There's nothing wrong with that. Check out the vocab, do the warm-up, and meet me for the lesson!

Today's Tips: Make flashcards and have a friend quiz you! Test your might!

When discussing school stuff, make sure you use the appropriate articles to specify the words and use verbs to go along with your vocabulary. Try to spot out words and use them accordingly when you're in class. That's the best way to remember them. :)
