    Learning Log – Ventanas – Lesson 5

    You can use this learning log to guide you through your learning journey. 

    This is a list of can do statements that you will be working towards checking off in this lesson. For each one, list two things you did to learn the material. Be aware that you may need many more than two for some of the topics. Do as many as you need to until you are confident that you know the material well enough to get the grade you would like on the exam and to reach the stated objective. There are often links in the book to websites that have exercises to help you practice the topic on that page.  There are two parts to this assignment.

    Part I

    1) I can tell what I and others like and dislike using the verb ¨gustar¨. (studyspanish, language&culture, Me gustas tú)
