I have multiple goals for the subject of Spanish this year. [SMART Goals]
- Firstly, I would like to practice my conjugations for (most) verbs ending in -AR, -IR, and -ER. I will achieve this by learning and practicing the conjugations of 2 new verbs every day of the week for a month. This will help me to learn approximately 60 new verb conjugations every month. Since I have a Spanish dictionary at home, I will use this as a resource to help me choose my verbs that I will be studying. At the end of each month, I will write some sentences using the conjugated form of the verbs that I have learned.
- Furthermore, I want to practice my reading skills which will undoubtedly expand my vocabulary and show me multiple sentence structures. I plan on reading short excerpts or texts in Spanish once a week. I will either borrow these books from the library, browse some from home, or even read online PDFs or texts. I will keep a list of the books/texts that I have read each month. (Like a reading log)
- Lastly, I will practice my oral skills, increase my vocabulary, and improve on sentence fluency by speaking in Spanish with my friends or with my dad as he can speak Spanish fluently. Everyday I will have (or attempt) a conversation with my friends for 10 minutes. This will help me (and my friends) to share some vocabulary terms that we didn’t know and share new expressions.
