Weekly Tip & Optional Homework Week of 6/9 for week of 6/16/14

Weekly Tip:

Goal written by one of PBO’s Students: “Aprender más adjetivos y usarlos correctamente.”


If you want to learn more adjectives, it’s really quite easy.

Make a list of 5 people that you know, include yourself, and then write down 3 adjectives that would describe each person. The ones that you don’t know, look them up (wordreference.com).

Once you’ve written down 3 adjectives for each person, see which adjectives you used to describe person #1, would also be appropriate for the others. Then do that with #2, #3 and so on.

By then you should have a list of approximately 15-20 adjectives. Now use that list and think of other things that you could also describe using those adjectives. This way you’re using them numerous times before learning any more…otherwise you won’t retain them.

Once you’ve worked on that for a while you can start a new list. Maybe 3 adjectives to describe each room in your house, your co-workers, your job, your car, your family, your last vacation, whatever you want! And make sure that you use them in class so that your teacher can correct you if needed.


Optional Homework

The optional homework is to write a profile using some of the words & expressions from this week’s class, describing the type of partner that you would want (look below this blog posting for the list).

Por ejemplo:

Busco a un hombre a quien le encanten los perros, que adore el teatro y que le fascine bailar. Quiero un hombre con buena pinta, que se lleve bien con su familia y que le interese viajar.

It can be shorter or longer, but try to use at least 5 of the expressions you learned or need to practice 🙂  Many of these won’t be new, but many get a bit complicated when it comes to the pronouns and conjugations.

For those of you that want more homework: Write a profile about yourself and your likes, using the same list.

Can’t wait to hear these next week!
