    As we conclude our final chapter, 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:

     Discuss things that have happened using the present perfect.

     Give commands and make suggestions.

     Discuss things that may or may not occur.

     Discuss wishes and desires one holds for others.

     Make recommendations.

     Recall vocabulary related to special occasions and important life moments.

     Discuss the future.

     Discuss matters using the conditional.

    ¡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:

    3. ________

    ·

    Study strategies I find useful:
