5 Oral Dialogue Part I Strategies
1. Do not give just yes/no responses 2. Do not restate all or essential parts of what the teacher has just said. 3. “Hello” and “How are you?” may serve to initiate a conversation but can not qualify for credit.

6 Oral Dialogue Part I Strategies
1. Each utterance must be a Checkpoint B idea. This can be achieved by adding… but, because, or by adding a question after your simple response. 2. Do not go to the main point immediately. Put yourself in the situation and expand the conversation.

7 What is Checkpoint B? - Speaker can initiate and sustain a conversation. - Speaker can use common verb tenses… present, past and future. - Speaker can use word order accurately. - Speaker can be understood by a native who is used to dealing with foreigners - Speaker can demonstrate a wide range of vocabulary to expand the topic. - Speaker can give more than one simple utterance.

20 Part II Listening Comprehension
15 passages - 1 question per passage 1-9 questions in English 10-15 questions in Spanish All questions are preceded by a sentence given in English.

21 Strategies for Listening Comprehension
Do not read questions or answers while the teacher is reading the paragraph. Deduce the answer by focusing on key words used in context which will lead you to the correct answer. Eliminate the answers that you do not hear. Do not focus on dates and names.
