The Spanish Leaving Certificate comprehension sections consist of four comprehensions, two long and two short. The two short comprehensions are straight comprehensions where you read the text in Spanish and respond in English. However, the two long comprehension sections are rather more complicated. They truly challenge the student to demonstrate their knowledge of the foreign…
We have created some Spanish Vocabulary Notes with examples (and sometimes photos) to help you learn this fascinating language. Note that the pages are entirely in Spanish so that you can learn the main word and other ones associated with it in its description / explanation.
A great way to learn Spanish vocabulary is by reading texts, stories or articles that are completely in the language. That is why we have written are own short reading passages in Spanish about different topics.

In this episode, Sr. Norton talks with Michelle about her school day. Classes, transportation, clubs and friends are discussed during the short dialogue.
The dialogue is played two times. The first has short pauses inserted between sentences to give the listener time to process. The second time plays straight through.
Extra credit: After the dialogue, there is a humorous interview between Michelle and her father.

This lesson is part of the course "Conversational Spanish I: Spanish basic sentence patterns". The complete course consists of 20 lessons including repetition-, substitution- and response drills for you to be fluent speaking Spanish in no time.

In this lecture you will be exposed to repetition drills of the basic dialogue.
You will now hear the same dialogue but broken into pieces, this way you can adapt yourself to the Spanish phonology. Repeat every word or phrase you hear as accurately as possible.
Repetition drills provide a controlled practice stage in which you have the chance to focus exclusively on Spanish and start to familiarize yourself with it. What you say and how you say it is controlled by the activity and restricts you to the target item. You are not required to speak spontaneously, and therefore do not have to focus on what you want to say at the same time as considering how to say it.

NOTES Telling the time, very clearly expressed on this page. Expand your knowledge. Take it one step further by looking at these phrases. Do you want to see it…

Write shorter sentences. It's much easier to write concise, accurate sentences than it is to keep track of what's happening in a long, meandering sentence. Short sentences are often punchier anyway. Choose one mistake to eradicate per assignment. Sometimes it can be hard to juggle all the different things you have to look out for - agreement…
