The 4 activities in each of our Spanish lessons progress step by step to help you the beginner gradually master the topic vocabulary. These activities are based on "3 stage questioning", a method of learning that quickly and easily builds your confidence as you work through a short series of lesson activities that strengthen your knowledge of the Spanish that you want to learn.
When you have completed the lesson for a topic, you should try some of our Spanish games before finally doing the test for your chosen topic. See the Help box below for detailed instructions on how to use our lessons to help you learn your Spanish more easily.
You start the lesson with an activity that introduces the Spanish Holidays words or sentences you will be learning. You will see a set of pictures one at a time, and for each picture you will see the written word and hear the Spanish audio for that picture.
You can repeat the audio for the picture by clicking on the brown telephone sign to the left of the picture. Move between pictures using the arrow buttons at the bottom. Say the words after you hear them. Also write down the words you see on the screen. Writing down the words a few times will help you to remember the vocabulary much better than just saying it.
In this activity, you will be shown the pictures from the topic Holidays one at a time. A voice will ask you whether this is a picture of... then play the Spanish audio and show the written Spanish words. You must decide whether these words from the Holidays topic match the picture or not. If you think they do, press the tick button. If you think the words are for a different picture, press the cross button.
If you are right, you get a gold star. If you are wrong a sign appears telling you what the correct answer was, and you get a red star with a cross. You can roll over these stars (gold for right, red and white if you got it wrong) to check the language for the items you got right / wrong and to see the text again for that item.
This activity moves on from the "Yes / No" activity and offers you two possible answers to each question. So, you will see a picture from your chosen topic Holidays then a voice will ask "Is this a picture of... or is it a picture of ..." and you will have to choose which of the answers is the one that matches the picture.
You choose an answer by clicking on the written words for that answer. You can play the audio for each answer again by clicking on the brown telephone button beside the written answer. The program will let you know each time whether you answered correctly. The Full lesson gives you 10 questions in the order that you learned them. The Quick refresh mode (flash version only) shows you 5 random pictures from the topic you are studying. At the end of the activity, you can choose whether to repeat it or move on to the next one.
The final activity in the lesson shows you many possible answers for each question and you must choose the correct one. You are shown a picture from your chosen topic Holidays and below it are a list of possible written answers from this topic. Rolling over an answer will play the Spanish audio for that answer. For each picture, click on the writing that matches the picture. The program will tell you whether you are right or not.
The Full lesson will show you 10 pictures in the order that you learned them. The Quick refresh mode (flash only) will show you 5 random pictures from the topic. The written answers are always in the order that you learned them in the Full lesson.
When you complete the "What is it?" activity, you can choose whether to go on to play some games with Holidays, or whether you want to repeat some or all of the activities in this Holidays lesson. You should expect to get 8/10 answers correct in most of the activities before going on to play the Spanish games for Holidays.
