  • Before moving on to Chapter 6, 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

    • Recall vocabulary related to food.
    • Discuss meals.
    • Anticipate common expressions that are likely to be used in restaurants where Spanish is spoken.
    • Manipulate sentences to avoid repetition in conversation.
    • Discuss ongoing actions in the present tense.
    • Describe my professional goals
    • Apply knowledge of geography and vocabulary relating to nationality to talk about myself and the peoples of the Spanish-speaking world.
    • Assess situations to determine whether the verb ser or the verb estar should be used.
    • Differentiate between muy, más, and mucho.

    ¡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.

    What do you currently feel is your greatest strength with Spanish? What do you attribute this success to? Is there something you are doing in this area that you could apply to weaker areas?

    ¡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:
