Throughout have improved on my Spanish skills through multiple aspects. The most important elements that helped me to develop were the activities and exercises this year.
To start off, I am most proud of the success that I have achieved this year. This success includes my ability to speak and comprehends the Spanish language throughout written, listening, and reading exercises. I think that the conjugation helped me the most since it was very similar to that of the French language, which helped me to progress rapidly.
I will consider myself as a Spanish speaker. Although I may have started taking the Spanish program this year, I am now able to hold basic conversations in the language, and I am now able to understand things that are written and said in Spanish.
If I could restart this year again I would organize my notes a lot more clearly and spend the time a lot more carefully. When looking back at my notes, I have found that my handwriting was messy, and all of my understandings were on different pages.
I think that I have a lot of places to improve to be able to enter phase 3. Below is the list of things I should be able to do until next year:
- Conjugation: Although I am confident in terms of the past, present, and future tenses, I still have to improve on my imperative conjugations because I am a bit unsure. In addition, I have to work on special verbs (unusual verbs- I forgot what they were called rn oops)
- Expressions: Since I have learned a lot of new expressions this year, I would like to further apply these into my learning or when I am writing or speaking to allow people to understand what I am saying easily.
- Accents: I would like to have a better understanding of where my accents are, and how to emphasize certain accents to pronounce my words easily.
Thus, I had lots of fun in Spanish class with Ms.HIll this year. I have learned a lot of things, and I look forward to learning more next year.
