Hey!
Thanks for stopping by today.

Today we’ll do some fun practice to help reinforce our verbs in this group of e- i and get them more active in our speech.
It’s a small group of irregular verbs, but it’s a good one! Lots of high frequency verbs in this group.

1.
Here’s the list from yesterday as a refresher:

conseguir*
seguir*
decir*
medir
pedir
repetir
servir
reír
sonreír

 

2.
The ‘Yo’ form for conseguir, seguir and decir are: yo consigo, yo sigo, yo digo

 

3.
Match the noun to the verb

a. un pedido = an order
Quiero una hamburguesa y un pedido de las papas fritas, por favor.

 

b. un dicho = a saying
Bon voyage es un dicho francés y buen viaje es un dicho español.

 

c. una sonrisa = a smile
Ella tiene una sonrisa muy bonita.

 

d. sonriente = smiley, smiling
Ana es muy sonriente (she always has a smile).

 

e. risas = laughter
Oigo las risas de tu amigo

 

f. siguiente = next
When waiting in line you may hear the next available cashier call out ‘siguiente‘.

 

4.
Connect the Spanish to the English

_____ pido             a. we follow
_____ sirven           b. he’s smiling
_____ seguimos     c. they serve
_____ mides           d. I’ll repeat
_____  sonríe          e. you measure
_____  repito          f. I’ll order

 

5.
Say the following aloud several times

a. Necesito conseguir un pasaporte.

b. Ellos sirven sopas y caldos.

c. Yo mido 5’pies y 8″pulgadas. Y tú, ¿cuánto mides?

d. No comprendo, repítelo, por favor.

e. Necesitamos seguir las instrucciones.

 

 

Action steps: Do the above exercises. Use the translation for number 5 if you need. It’s below
Come back tomorrow. We’re starting something new!

I look forward to seeing you then.

Gracias y hasta mañana,
Carolina
