Weekly Tip & Optional Homework: Week of 3/3 for week of 3/10/14

Weekly Tip: 

Goal written by one of PBO’s Students:

“Pasar más tiempo estudiando español.”  (Spend more time studying Spanish).


I have compared learning a language to working out a million times.  This is another area where they’re very similar.

If you don’t set aside time to exercise, you’re never going to do it.  The same goes for Spanish. 

I would recommend setting aside 15 minutes every day (at the same time), to work on your Spanish (if you have more time, great, but 15 minutes is a good amount of time if you do it daily).  This way it’s part of your routine. 

Maybe you’re watching a telenovela while you make breakfast?

Maybe you’re doing one grammar exercise in a workbook every day before you jump in the shower?

Maybe you’re participating in the conversación del dia on Facebook every day before you head to work?

Maybe you’re reading in Spanish while you eat lunch?

It could be anything, but I highly recommend scheduling it if it’s a priority for you 🙂


Optional Homework

The optional homework is to listen to these 4 songs (they’re all a favorite song from our adolescence) and choose your favorite.  We’re going to vote next week, and then in a few weeks we will sing the winning song and review the lyrics.  ¡Qué entretenido!
