¿ ¡ á é í ó ú ñ Á É Í Ó Ú Spanish 101 – Elementary Spanish 1 Day One information: Instructor prefers to be addressed as Professor/Mrs./Profesora Carbajal Final exam is not a “comprehensive” exam, however language courses are inherantly comprehensive as each lesson builds upon previous lessons If student is late to class, approach Profesora to ensure attendance is recorded for the day No late work is accepted, however electronic submissions may be accepted if emailed to Profesora Carbajal before 8 AM (class start time) Review Days are the day before the exam, also workbook assignments are due at midnight the night before the exam. Additional practice for study is available on Canvas (pre & post tests, study guides, & helpful websites) and Heinle program (chapter reviews & practice activities) Assignments listed on Canvas (A+ symbol means graded assignment) – Modules section has expectations for each day’s preparations and assignments Señorita > Señora unless you are absolutely positive the woman is married Con permiso – “excuse me” in regards to physical interruptions, entering the room late, etc Disculpe – “excuse me” in regards to social interactions Perdón – “Excuse me” in regards to “I’m sorry” situations – e.g. stepping on someone’s foot Accents (Diacritical marks) are used on words that break the rule of emphasis. Normally, if a word ends in a vowel, n, or s, stress will land on the 2nd to last syllable (penultimate syllable) Additionally, accents are used to differentiate meaning in written Spanish between two words spelled the same but have different meanings: e.g. él = he, el = the Alphabet sounds are constant, with the exception of “g” & “c”, which changes depending on the vowels around it Conjugating “ser”, an irregular verb Singular, Present Tense Plural, Present Tense Yo (I) Soy Nosotros (We) Somos Tú (You, informal) Eres Vosotros (You guys, Sois informal, Spain) Él (He) Es Ellos (Men/Mixed Group) Son Ella (She) Ellas (Women) Usted (You, formal) Ustedes (You guys, formal) Verb conjugation with unique pronouns (yo soy/tú eres) allows for you to drop the pronoun, since the conjugated verb can only have the one type of subject meaning Negation of sentence meaning (opposite) is done by placing “no” in front of the verb – then considered part of the verb, and thus must be there in order to have correct sentence structure Asking a question in Spanish is done verbally by intonation – a raised tone at the end of the sentence, as well as with question words. Written questions are visible with question marks and question words. Irregular verb #2 – “hay” – means there is/there are, and does not conjugate All interrogative words have accents to differentiate from other meanings of the same spellings. “Cuál” is used much more frequently in Spanish, often in the same context that an English speaker would use “What” ¿Cómo? “How was that?” is what is used for when you don’t understand/didn’t hear the speaker – ¿Qué? is considered very rude, and like you’re yelling at the speaker La especialización es __________ practice in class today. “¡La especialización es la biología!” Conjugating ar verbs, present tense Singular Plural Yo verbo Nosotros verbamos Tú verbas Vosotros verbáis Él verba Ellos verban Ella Ellas Usted Ustedes Example: mirar – to look/watch Yo miro Tú miras Él mira Nosotros miramos Vosotros miráis Ellos miran
