Espero que todos disfruten de esta semana de vacaciones!

We are half way there… I encourage you for continuing BUILD classes even though we all have a million other things going on.

Espero que todos se encuentren muy bien. In today’s class we discussed directions. Here they are, please look at them and review them. We will try and integrate them in our later classes. Here are also the numbers in tens (10,20, 30 and so on)




Spanish 2A

To find out

what is happening

in Spanish 2A

this semester,

head on over

to our blog!

I was really happy to see new and returning faces 🙂 Hope that everyone had as much fun as I did. For next week please look over the short introductions as we will start with them and then add to them and start new ones. I have posted here what we went over in class. Please remember there are time when there are no direct translations, I have done my best to translate them directly for you so they might sound funny in English. See you all next week 🙂

Click on any of the three pictures and they will get bigger 🙂

Please click here for the link to today’s class notes 🙂

And also, we are not meeting next week as it is Thanksgiving (gobble gobble!) but we are planning to have one last class on Thursday, December 1st.

As part of my CALL and Pedagogy class I have been learning how to run a moodle site from the teacher’s perspective. As a result, I have set up a moodle site for our BUILD class, in order to give me some hands-on experience with real information.

I invite everyone interested to check it out.


You can sign in as a guest for our purposes. After you click on “log in as guest”, click on the “courses” button on the left hand side.

Next click on “BUILD Spanish 2B” and you should be in our very own moodle!

I am putting all of our resources that we have been using (and will be using) in class on the moodle.

I would love to hear any feedback you may have for me. 🙂 This is a new learning experience that I want to make the most of!

¿Qué tal amigos? Here is the link to the class notes from today’s lesson on present indicative verbs. I updated the charts from the post I put up on Nov. 4th (lección seis- parte b), so now they match the order in which you have them on your verb sheets :).

¡Gracias por venir a clase! Hasta luego…

Spanish 1a Thursday (Nov 3rd, 2011)

Hola amigos. Aquí les doy el vínculo para la explicación de como conjugar los verbos del indicativo presente. / Hi everyone. Here is the link for the explanation of how to conjugate verbs in the present indicative, which we’ll be learning about next week.

This will be useful information to browse through ahead of next week’s class if you’re interested, as I have all the space I want to explain how it’s done :).

Thanks for participating in our song activity yesterday, it was really fun!
