Reflexión Unidad 3

Three new things I learned in this Unit are:

  • What participios are and how you use them.
  • I actually learned a lot of historical information during this Unit which really shows that we are now transitioning between learning the language and learning the history of the countries.
  • The difference between the preterit and the imperfect. I now mostly know when to use which one and I am capable of using both in my writing.

Four Questions I still have are:

  • Which cultures specifically focused on story telling, maybe even did it as a daily ritual/routine?
  • Is it somehow related to bedtime stories that parents tell their children nowadays?
  • What is the use of the present perfect? When do you use it?
  • Did people used to use legends to learn about ‘history’ or why did people start telling each other stories?

Things that went well during this unit are:

  • I am proud of my writing during this unit. It was a lot easier for me to use my own words rather than translations.
  • My fluency and confidence in speaking spanish improved quite a bit. I am still no where near speaking without errors but I have managed to improve it a bit.

My goals for the next Unit are:

  • To improve my studying habits. This was something i was good at in the first unit but during this unit I stopped doing this. I would like to restart this habit.
  • Expanding my vocabulary by adding all of the new vocal to my quizlet and using it to study.
  • Doing extra curricular activities so that continuing to learn becomes less challenging.

    Hi Vivien! You raise some great questions about the history and purpose of oral story telling. I suggest you bring these up to your English teacher and see if they have a response. I think that people have been using stories as an effective way to pass on history and morals to the next generation.
