¡Hola Speekee! is our free 10-week series of Spanish lessons for children at home.
Over the 10 weeks you will cover the following 10 themes:
Greetings. Numbers. Days / Months. Age. Colours. Animals. Family. Food. Likes and dislikes. Hobbies.
Maggie is pricing up the items in her shop. Can you tell which foods she says before she puts a price on them?
Did you catch the foods she mentioned? If not don’t worry, here’s a table to help you:
|Zumo de piña||thoomoh deh peenyah||Pineapple juice|
|Zumo de naranja||thoomoh deh nahrahnhah||Orange juice|
There’s a lot to learn there, but don’t panic! Just try a few at a time. When you think you know them, print out the activity sheet and follow the instructions on there. (Did you notice the prices too? If you can remember the numbers we learnt a few weeks ago, then why not try saying the prices in Spanish, too?) If you don’t have a printer, you can draw your own pictures and write the words on some paper.
Aitana, Victoriano and Ana Belén are queueing at Maggie’s shop. Can you hear what food they’ve bought?
After Maggie’s finished scanning her shopping, Ana Belén asks “¿Cuánto es?” which means “How much is it?”. Then she uses the numbers we learned a few weeks ago to give an answer (this is just any number).
Find a partner and practise asking “¿Cuánto es?”. They can reply with any price. Then swap, so they ask how much it costs and you give an answer.
When you’re confident with that, print out the activity sheet and follow the instructions on there. If you don’t have a printer, just copy out and fill in the sheet on some paper.
