Last night was my Spanish 01 class. I have this class two nights a week (T and Th).
I didn't learn too much in terms of new information... I already know the alphabet and I can count to 100...
I can ask the time; ask you your name; and ask your how you are doing...
I also know how to say hello and good bye...
In our house, Spanish is used when our kids are in trouble:
Most of the students in the class did not purchase their books yet - so we didn't have the first lesson we should have and we didn't get homework assigned. We do have an exam next Thursday on the first three chapters!
The homework was 1) buy the books and 2) logon and register with the on-line workbook 3) know how to spell your name in Spanish (both first and last names) 4) know how to say your phone number in Spanish
All very easy.
The instructor loves to speak in Spanish - so only half the class understood what he was talking about and about a quarter of that half understood every word. I was in the 1/2 that understood the gist and laughed when appropriate.
This will be a fun and a challenging class once we get going.
