¡Hola Speekee! is our 10-week series of free 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.
Watch this video where Marina, Antonio, Nieves, Antonio and Juan Miguel all say ‘hola’ to you - this means 'hello'.
Why don’t you practise saying it back to them? If there’s a group of you, you can practise it with one person saying ‘hola’ and the rest repeating it back. (If you're feeling really adventurous and you have a slide, you could even use that so it’s like the video - if not you could use a chair instead.)
Then you can print off this sheet and fill in the gaps where each Speekee character says ‘hello’ in Spanish. If you don't have a printer, just practise writing 'hola'. You could even try and draw the Speekee characters.
Watch this video where Jim is with the children at the park.
He asks them: '¿Qué tal?' - which means 'how are you?' and they all reply saying 'muy bien' - which is 'great' or 'very well'.
Now it’s your turn to ask and reply! Find someone to practise with, asking ‘¿Qué tal?’ and responding with ‘muy bien’. Take it in turns to ask or reply - make sure you get a chance to do both!
When you’re happy with this, you can add ‘¿Y tú?’ - which means 'how about you?'
If you’re feeling really brave, add 'no muy bien' - which means 'not very well'. This will help you with the activity sheet!
When you are confident with ‘muy bien’ and ‘no muy bien’, print out this sheet and fill in the gaps. If you don't have a printer, just draw your own faces and write the sentences on some paper.
Why not try saying ‘hola’ instead of ‘hello’ every time you see somebody!
