Study the lección 1 story summary using the Historia (Spanish and English versions), noting and emphasizing new vocabulary and constructions. The story summary will be discussed in class, but if you miss that class or need extra copies, go to the links below. Remember that anything in the story summary could appear on the Spanish to English section of the exam.

There are a few exercises in the text than can be useful for practicing the story line materials. Below, you will find discussions of these exercises and links to the answers and English translations. I will provide the English equivalent of the Spanish in each exercise so that you can check your comprehension and perhaps try to put the English back into Spanish, using the text as your answer sheet.


(Page 6) --- Actividad A. ¿Quiénes son? (Who are they?)

Make sure that you know what these sentences mean. Check your answers against the answers online, and then practice putting the English sentences back into Spanish.

Make sure that you know all the vocabulary items on this list. I suggest that you make a vocabulary list with with Spanish on one side and English on the other so that you can use the list as a vocabulary quiz.



We also need to consider several exercises in the workbook. Again, I will provide discussions of the exercises and links to the answers and English equivalents. Selected exercises will appear on your exam. Check the exam description for details.

I want you to choose the appropriate character, but I also want you to make sure you know what everything says. Click below for the answers and the English equivalents. It would be good practice to try to put all the sentences back into Spanish from the English.
