Unit 1: Personal Identification How to introduce and describe yourself to others
Vocabulario I will pass out your vocabulary for this unit. I have given you the definition of these words. Whenever we begin a new unit or a new topic, I will always begin with the vocabulary for the unit. Many times, I may give you the assignment of looking up and defining the words. Please keep your vocabulary in the “vocabulario” section of your notebook. It is your job to study the vocabulary for the unit. It only takes 10 minutes a night- and it will make a difference! The sooner and the better you know your vocabulary, the easier the rest of the unit will be! Also- be prepared for weekly vocabulary quizzes or some pop quizzes!!!!
Vocabulario Take a minute to look over your words. Go through the list. Make a mental note of the words you already know- and the ones that you are not familiar with, or that you know are difficult to spell. Flash cards are a perfect way to study those tricky words!
Lección 1: Formal Vs. Informal What does “formal” mean? How about “informal”? Name some people that you would classify as “informal”…. Now how about “formal”. In Spanish, there is a formal way to address people- this is called the USTED form. There is also an informal way to address people- this is called the TÚ form. Both USTED and TÚ mean “you” in English. You must decide who the person is that you are speaking with is a formal person or an informal person. Let’s try a few examples together….
Formal or Informal? 1.A friend of your mother 2.A friend your age 3.A doctor that is 30 years older than you 4.Your father 5.Your brother or sister 6.A police officer 7.A judge 8.Your favorite aunt or uncle 9.Your teacher 10.Your principal
Lección 1: Formal Vs. Informal Now, go back to your vocabulary. How would you FORMALLY ask somebody “How are you?” How would you INFORMALLY ask somebody the same question? How would you FORMALLY ask somebody “How old are you?” And INFORMALLY? How would you FORMALLY ask somebody “What is your name?” And INFORMALLY? How would you FORMALLY ask somebody “Where are you from?” And INFORMALLY?
Lección 1: Formal Vs. Informal Are there any questions?
Actividad 1 First, everyone must find a partner. Each pair will get 1 worksheet with “bocas” (mouths) on it. Your goal is to come up with an INFORMAL dialogue on side one of the worksheet. In this dialogue, you and your partner must… 1.Greet each other 2.Tell each other your name 3.Find out the age of your partner 4.Say goodbye When we are finished, these dialogues will be read aloud to the class.
Actividad 1 Next, Please flip your worksheet over to the other side. This time, please create a dialogue that is FORMAL! Have one partner play the role of an elderly person, teacher, principal or a professional. Go back to your vocabulary and be sure to use the correct form of the question you wish to ask. Use the same guidelines and goals as the first dialogue. Have fun and be creative! We will read these aloud when the class has finished.
