Assessments Offered
Oral assignments - Feedback provided Vocabulary assignment (Game Quizz) At the end of each class, there's a game suitable for their age using one of the platforms authorized by Outschool. Students simply click on a provided link in the chat to join, without the need to create an account, ensuring a safe experience. Additionally, after each class, I post instructions for assignments to be completed at home. These assignments include two activities: a game quiz consisting of 10 to 12 questions to practice the vocabulary from the class and posting an audio or video in the classroom or privately to practice their oral skills. While these assignments are optional, they are highly recommended to accelerate the Spanish learning process and build confidence in speaking the new language. I provide feedback on these assignments.
