The 12 Most Frequent Spanish Verbs Are Irregular. Let's Use Them. Part 2.

Join me for part 2 of the class that teaches the verbs students would most often hear and use in any Spanish context. We'll cover: Tener, Hacer, and Poder. Some prior Spanish learning would help students take full advantage of this class.

Class Experience

During this class, students will:

Predict the meaning and use of the verbs Tener, Hacer and Poder.
Learn the meaning and form of these irregular verbs in present tense.
Differentiate and use all the pronoun forms: yo, tú, él/ella/usted, nosotros, (vosotros), ellos/ellas/ustedes.
Compare and contrast the meaning and use of the verbs while matching the translations in Spanish and English.
Contextualize the verbs creating situations and using the verbs in writing and orally.
Interact while speaking Spanish with other students in pairs and as a whole group through dialogues and games using the verbs. 
Growing up in Spain, I studied English and French in school for years, and I can still remember having the feeling of not being prepared to have an accurate conversation when I had the opportunity to talk with native speakers. How could it be that after all those years of studying I couldn't have an age-appropriate conversation? The truth is that students are often exposed to language in contexts they will likely not experience until later in life and to vocabulary that is not commonly used in their daily lives. Experiencing this gap between book learning and real-world experience in addition to my degrees in foreign language acquisition and teaching enable me to help students get ready to sustain dynamic conversations outside the classroom. Being bilingual in English and Spanish and connecting with my students and their needs for over 20 years, I have the knowledge to explain how structures and language use are similar or different from their own language. 
After the lesson, students will come up with contextualized sentences describing someone or something using Tener, Hacer and Poder. This could be done in writing or audio/video form. They'll share the file as a class post. 
I'll provide students with files. Students just need to come to class ready to learn. :)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Throughout the class, I'll be checking correctness in the use of the target language. In addition, I'll provide students with examples and explanations so that they can self-correct. I'll provide feedback on their homework once students post it. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
