¡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.
Dani loves football. In this video he tells us all about it, including when he plays it.
You don’t need to understand most of the conversation for this topic, so here’s the bits you should know:
Interviewer: ¿Cuándo juegas al fútbol?
Dani: Juego los miércoles y los viernes.
Interviewer: When do you play football?
Dani: I play on Wednesdays and Fridays.
So now it’s your turn! Once you have practised the days of the week (which are listed below), try and say them in full sentences, like Dani.
Once you have done that you can print off 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.
Here’s Maggie and some of her friends from school telling us their birthdays.
If you have some card and a pin you can make a wheel like in the video. If not, don’t worry - you can still easily practise the months! Here’s a reminder of the months to help you:
Once you feel confident with these, you can add dates too, like Maggie’s friends.
You probably looked at numbers last week, so here’s an example of how to say the full date:
El (the) quince (fifteenth) de (of) marzo (March).
Now you can say your birthday, by adding Mi cumpleaños es el...
So ‘My birthday is on the 15th of March’ would be ‘Mi cumpleaños es el quince de marzo’.
When you’re happy 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.
