    Before moving on to Chapter 2, reflect upon what you can do with the language. Check off all of the things on the list below that you can do.

    For any actions you cannot yet do, review the topic and seek out additional resources such as tutoring, extra help from your instructor, online materials, etc.

    After completing this chapter I can:
    •  Understand basic written and spoken greetings and goodbyes
    •  Greet and say goodbye to another person
    •  Apply knowledge of formal and informal situations to treat people I meet appropriately
    •  Understand basic introductions in written and spoken form
    •  Introduce myself and others to another person
    •  Recite the Spanish alphabet
    •  Recognize letters of the Spanish alphabet when they are used to spell words and when they are pronounced within words
    •  Discuss differences between the Spanish and English alphabets and pronunciation of letters
    •  Recall the Spanish words for common class subjects
    •  State which classes I am currently taking
    •  Determine when to use a definite article versus when to use an indefinite article
    •  Recognize patterns that help determine the gender of nouns
    •  Recall nouns related to student life, as well as their gender
    •  Manipulate nouns to make them singular or plural

    ¡A reflexionar sobre los objetivos!

    Goal setting, Paso 1. As we are working to be our best language learners, we need to regularly check in on our progress toward our goals. Use the questions below to reflect upon the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the chapter.

    My two short term goals were:

    1. ________

    · Did you follow your action plan? In what way(s)? What worked? What didn’t work?

    · ________ I have achieved this goal/ ________ I made progress toward this goal/ ________ I have not made progress toward this goal and should make a revision to my goal or my action plan.

    2. ________

    · Did you follow your action plan? In what way(s)? What worked? What didn’t work?

    · ________ I have achieved this goal/ ________ I made progress toward this goal/ ________ I have not made progress toward this goal and should make a revision to my goal or my action plan.

    My one long-term goal was:

    3. ________

    · Did you follow your action plan? In what way(s)? What worked? What didn’t work?

    · ________ I have achieved this goal/ ________ I made progress toward this goal/ ________ I have not made progress toward this goal and should make a revision to my goal or my action plan.

    How do you feel about your initial greatest fear about learning Spanish? Better? Worse? Why?

    ¡A revisar los objetivos!

    Goal setting, Paso 2. Before moving on to the next chapter, take a moment to update your goals and/or action plans. It is okay to keep goals that you set for yourself previously if you are still working toward them.

    My two short term goals with action plans:

    1. ________

    ·

    2. ________

    ·

    My one long-term goal with an action plan:

    3. ________

    ·
