¡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 the video where bestfriends Julia, Ana Belén and Maggie introduce themselves to us.
‘Me llamo (own name)’.
Now it’s your turn!
Practise introducing yourself. Then you can introduce yourself to someone else.
When you feel confident with this, print off the activity sheet and follow the instructions on there, or if you don't have a printer just copy the sentences onto some paper.
Dani and Ana Belén love going to the park. Watch this video where Dani rings Ana Belén to organise a trip there.
You will learn what some of their conversation means another time, so here’s the important bits to know for now:
Dani: ¿Qué tal?
Ana Belén: Muy bien. ¿Y tú?
In English, this means:
Dani: How are you?
Ana Belén: Very well, how about you?
Now you can practise saying this! It’s best to find someone else to do it with, so you can take it in turns to ask and reply.
An example conversation would be:
Person 1: Hola. ¿Qué tal?
Person 2: Muy bien. ¿Y tú?
Person 1: Muy bien.
If you’re feeling adventurous you could also use ‘no muy bien’, which means ‘not very well’.
You could also build on the previous activity and introduce yourself first with your name.
When you have practised this a few times, print off the activity sheet and follow the instructions on there. If you don't have a printer, just draw your own faces and copy the sentences onto some paper.
