Course Description: This course is an introduction to learning Spanish for middle-school aged students. Students will learn to listen and to read with awareness in order to discover word meanings and relations. The course begins with a 55-lesson introduction to language families and cognates (with special emphasis on Latin and the Romance languages), with exercises to help train students’ eyes and ears to see relationships between words and become more skilled language learners. Students then spend 20 lessons practicing these skills with an exclusive focus on Spanish before moving into the main beginners’ course in Spanish. The focus of the Spanish course will be on learning vocabulary and practicing pronunciation. Listening, speaking, reading and writing skills will be developed. Topics covered include: greetings, the body, clothing, numbers to 100, colors, shapes, family, weather, the calendar, and food.

Materials:

  • Spiral notebook or lined paper in a separate section of a binder for foreign language, to write down vocabulary and to copy sentences.

Lesson 1

Welcome to your first day of school! I wanted to give you one important reminder before you begin. Many of your lessons below have an internet link for you to click on. When you go to the different internet pages for your lessons, please DO NOT click on anything else on that page except what the directions tell you to. DO NOT click on any advertisements or games. DO NOT click on anything that takes you to a different website. Just stay focused on your lesson and then close that window and you should be right back here for the next lesson. Okay?

  1. If you didn’t get here through My EP Assignments, I suggest you go there and create an account.
  2. Before you start actually studying Spanish, we’re going to spend some time developing our language-learning skills. This will help you when we start focusing on learning Spanish.
  3. This week, we are going to learn about how languages borrow words from each other, and how this can help our learning of Spanish. English has borrowed a lot of words from Latin, Greek, and French.
  4. So let’s get started. First, we’re going to practice looking for related (borrowed) words between languages. Let me give you an example of how English borrowed from the French: Avion in French means airplane. Now, I don’t think the words avion and airplane are related, but I think avion and the English word aviation are related. When you encounter new words, you will use your powers of observation to make connections like that to uncover their meanings and remember them more easily.
  5. Look at this list of French words. Try to guess the meaning of each word.
  6. This is the end of your work for this course for your first day. You are allowed to move at your own pace (this is homeschooling), but it’s intended you complete one lesson a day.

Lesson 2* (Note that an asterisk * indicates that there is a worksheet on this lesson)

  1. English has borrowed a lot of words from Latin, the language of the ancient Romans.
  2. (*)Look at this list of words in Latin. Use this worksheet (or start a Spanish notebook) and write the Latin words down in the Latin column. Then, next to them, write down what you think each word means in the English column. Then you can highlight the answers at the bottom of the Latin Vocabulary page to see how close you were. (Once again, you may be wrong. That is okay. It’s not about the answers. You aren’t actually learning Latin. You don’t have to learn the meanings of these words. I’m training you as a language learner.)
  3. Save the worksheet; you’ll be using it again on Lesson 4.

Lesson 3

  1. It’s not only English that borrows words from other languages. Spanish has borrowed words from English as well. Can you guess the meanings of these Spanish words? Accidente, Animal, Color, Director, Distancia, Error, Familia, Grupo, Hotel, Idea, Mapa, Piano, Restaurante
  2. Word that look and sound similar and have a similar meaning in two different languages are called “cognates.”
  3. Not only do languages borrow words from each other, but it’s also important to know that languages come in “families.” The families probably began at the Tower of Babel (see Genesis 11 in the Bible to read this story about how different languages started). Then, groups of people speaking the same language stayed together, travelling together, and ended up in different places around the world. Over time their languages developed and changed, and new languages evolved from those languages. Think of how many Americans came from England. Did they develop a different type of English from the “original” English of England? Yes, we use some different vocabulary and speak with a different accent. And the English used in England changed over time. You can see that as well in the King James Bible. It was written in English, but it’s a different English than we know today. Do we say, “Thus saith?” No, our language has changed, and that’s just over hundreds of years. Languages change.

Lesson 4

  1. Spanish is a so-called “Romance” language; it is in the family of Romance languages. This has nothing to do with anything romantic; it just means that Spanish, along with other Romance languages such as French, Italian, and Portuguese, comes from LATIN. The Latin language, as you may know, was the language of the ancient Romans. When the Romans settled in different parts of Europe, and stayed there, the way they spoke in the different areas gradually got more and more different until you had Italian in Italy, French in France, Spanish in Spain, etc. So what does this mean? It means that you’ll find lots of similarities between words in Latin, Spanish, Italian, and French.
  2. English is not a Romance language, but has borrowed a lot of words from the Romance languages.
  3. Take that worksheet from Lesson 2 and type the English words into this French dictionary. See what similarities and differences you can find. If you find some French words that are similar to the Latin and/or the English, write them down on your sheet in the French column.
  4. You are related to your siblings. There are ways you are the same, and ways you are different. You don’t have to be identical to be related. (There are no right answers. The only wrong answer is saying, “I don’t know” and giving up. Turn on your powers of observation and make some guesses, some assumptions.)
  5. Make sure you use accent marks when you copy French or Spanish words. Accent marks are those little lines above and sometimes below a letter.

Lesson 5

  1. Look up the Spanish words for those English meanings (your list from Lesson 2) and see if you can find any similarities. Write down on your worksheet (in the Spanish column) any of the Spanish words that you think are related to the Latin or French.
  2. Do you see any French and Spanish words that are related? Do you think any of the English words are related? I’m asking what you see and think. I’m not giving answers to these. You are practicing your observation and thinking skills.

Lesson 6

  1. OK, so now you know that languages can share some words, or have some words that are similar in both languages, because of borrowing and because of family resemblances between languages.
  2. Now we’re going to step up your language-detective skills a notch. You’re going to be listening to the same story for five days in a row, and doing different things with it each day. The story is going to be…wait for it… all in Spanish! Don’t worry, it’ll be fine. You don’t have to understand everything. Why the same story so many times? Because with languages, repetition is the key to learning! You might as well get used to that idea now.
  3. (*) Listen to this story in Spanish. (Turn off English captioning/subtitles. If it’s showing up, click on the CC to turn it off.)Be on the lookout for any Spanish words that you think look familiar and you think you could guess the meaning. When you see and hear a word that you think is related to the English, pause the video there and copy the Spanish word down. Here’s another sheet if needed.
  4. Be sure to write them down exactly, including accent marks. Sometimes one letter or one accent mark can make a big difference in meaning.

Lesson 7

  1. Listen to the story one more time. (Turn off English captioning. If it’s showing up, click on the CC to turn it off.)
  2. Now, get out your sheet and write down in the English column what you think each of the Spanish words that you wrote down on Lesson 6 means. Again, it’s OK if you’re wrong!

Lesson 8

  1. Listen to the story in Spanish again. (Turn off English captioning. If it’s showing up, click on the CC to turn it off.)
  2.  Look up the French words for those English meanings you wrote down on Lesson 7, and see if you can find any similarities to the Spanish. Any French word that you think is related to the Spanish, you will write down on your sheet on the line with that Spanish word in it. If you don’t see any similarity, choose a word to write down for that meaning.
  3. You may find more than one French word listed in the online dictionary. That happens in English too. You can say, for example, either sofa or couch. They mean the same thing. Car and automobile are the same thing. Plane and airplane are the same thing. So don’t get frustrated if French has more than one word for something. If there is a list of options, look for one that is related to the Spanish.

Lesson 9

  1. Listen to the story in Spanish again. (Turn off English captioning. If it’s showing up, click on the CC to turn it off.)
  2. Look up the Latin words for those English meanings from Lesson 7, and see if you can find any similarities. Write down on your sheet any of the Latin words that you think are related to the Spanish or French. Do you think any of the English words are related?

Lesson 10

  1. Listen to the story in Spanish one more time.
  2. This time click on the CC to turn on subtitles. What was it saying? Had you understood the story? Did anything surprise you?

Lesson 11(*)

  1. You may have noticed that I never had you look up the meaning of any Spanish words; I only had you guess. Why? Because when you are living in another country, you often learn by observing, making assumptions and then testing them. You don’t always know the exact meaning of everything you see and hear.
  2. Now, believe it or not, you’re going to be doing the same thing you did before, but this time the story will be in FRENCH! “Wait, I thought I was learning Spanish!?” you may be thinking. You are, but this will help train your ears and eyes to pick out familiar words and just in general to notice details about words, all of which will help you when we dive into Spanish.
  3. So for today, listen to and watch this story in French. (Turn off subtitles.) Be sure to follow along with your eyes as you listen with your ears. You are looking for and listening for words that you think you can guess what they mean.
  4. (*) Write them down under the French column of your sheet. Here’s another sheet if needed.
  5. Feel free to pause the video as often as you need to. Definitely look at the words on the screen, because in French, the word may look almost the same as the English when written, but sound COMPLETELY different and strange when pronounced!
  6. The sounds of French might be strange to you, and what you hear sometimes might not seem to line up with what you see…but that’s OK! It’s all part of training your brain to be a good language-learner.

Lesson 12

  1. Listen to the story again in French. (Turn off subtitles.)
  2. Write down what you think might be the English meaning for each word you wrote on Lesson 11.

Lesson 13

  1. Listen to the story again in French. (Turn off subtitles.)
  2. Look up the Spanish words for those English meanings from Lesson 11, and see if you can find any similarities. Write down on your sheet any of the Spanish words that you think are related to the French.

Lesson 14

  1. Listen to the story in French. (Turn off subtitles.)
  2. Look up the Latin words for those English meanings from Lesson 11, and see if you can find any similarities. Write down on your sheet any of the Latin words that you think are related to the Spanish or French. Do you think any of the English words are related?

Lesson 15

  1. Listen to the story in French.
  2. This time turn on the subtitles. Click on the CC and see how well you did guessing the meaning of the story.

Lesson 16(*)

  1. This week, we’re going to continue training our eyes and ears, but we’re going to do it with a story in Portuguese, which is also a Romance language (meaning it comes from Latin) very similar to Spanish. They speak Portuguese in Brazil, Portugal, and a few countries in Africa.
  2. For today, listen to and watch this story in Portuguese. (Turn off English subtitles.) Be sure to follow along with your eyes as you listen with your ears. You are looking for and listening for words that you think you can guess what they mean. As you saw with French, sometimes the Portuguese words will sound very different than they look.
  3. (*) Print out another sheet if needed.
  4. . When you find a word that looks familiar, pause the video and write it down under the French column of your sheet (you should probably cross out the word “French” and write “Portuguese”).  Feel free to pause the video as often as you need to.

Lesson 17

  1. Listen to the story again in Portuguese. (Turn off English subtitles.)
  2. Write down what you think might be the English meaning for each word you wrote on Lesson 16.

  2. Look up the Latin words for those English meanings from Lesson 17, and see if you can find any similarities. Write down on your sheet any of the Latin words that you think are related to the Spanish or Portuguese. Do you think any of the English words are related?

Lesson 20

  1. Listen to the story in Portuguese.
  2. This time turn on the English subtitles. Click on the CC and see how well you did guessing the meaning of the story.

Lesson 21(*)

  1. My most embarrassing language-learning moment was when I was first learning Turkish. We were living in Macedonia, and I was using Rosetta Stone, a language learning program that doesn’t tell you what the new words mean. I got it in my head that this one word meant “need.” We visited some friends in Turkey and we went shopping. I was able to use some Turkish words and felt good about myself. As we were leaving one store, the owner pointed out some underwear in a bin and asked us if we were interested in buying any. I thought I told him that we didn’t “need” any. His mouth dropped open and his eyes bugged out. I learned later that I had really told him that we didn’t “use” underwear.
  2. This week we’ll do something a little different. We’re going to listen to a new version of “The Three Little Pigs” in English…but some of the words are spoken in Latin. These might not be words that sound or look like the English, but they are words you should probably be able to guess the meaning of from the context.
  3. (*) Print out another sheet if needed.
  4. When you come across a Latin word, you’ll pause the video and write it down in the Latin column.
  5. Listen to this story in English and Latin.

Lesson 22

  1. Listen to the story again.
  2. Write down in the English column your guess as to what the Latin words might mean.

Lesson 23

  1. Listen to the story again.
  2. Look up the Spanish words for those English meanings from Lesson 22, and see if you can find any similarities with the Latin. Write down on your sheet any of the Spanish words that you think are related to the Latin.

Lesson 24

  1. Listen to the story again.
  2.  Look up the French words for those English meanings you wrote down on Lesson 22, and see if you can find any similarities to the Latin and Spanish. Any French word that you think is related, you will write down on your sheet on the line with that Latin word in it. If you don’t see any similarity, choose a word to write down for that meaning.

Lesson 25

  1. Listen to the story again.
  2. Now, use this Latin dictionary to look up the English meanings of the Latin words you’ve been seeing all week. Did you guess their meanings correctly?

Lesson 26(*)

  1. This week, we’re going to continue training our eyes and ears again, but we’re going to do it with a story in Italian, which is also a Romance language (meaning it comes from Latin). They speak Italian in Italy, the home of the ancient Latin language.
  2. For today, listen to and watch this story in Italian. (Turn off English subtitles.) Be sure to follow along with your eyes as you listen with your ears. You are looking for and listening for words that you think you can guess what they mean.
  3. (*) Print out another sheet if needed.
  4. When you find a word that looks familiar, pause the video and write it down under the French column of your sheet (you should probably cross out the word “French” and write “Italian”).  Feel free to pause the video as often as you need to.

Lesson 27

  1. Listen to the story again in Italian. (Turn off English subtitles.)
  2. Write down what you think might be the English meaning for each word you wrote on Lesson 26.

Lesson 28

  1. Seeing how words are related can help you figure out the meanings of English words too. What if you heard someone talk about “deconstructing” something? What clues are there? What are related words? You know that “construction” is building things. You maybe know that the prefix “de-” is like the prefix “un-,” meaning not or the opposite. Maybe you know words like “declutter” and “deactivate.” So, the opposite of constructing or building things. “Deconstruct” means to take apart.
  2. Listen to the story again in Italian. (Turn off English subtitles.)
  3. Look up the Spanish words for those English meanings from Lesson 27, and see if you can find any similarities. Write down on your sheet any of the Spanish words that you think are related to the Italian words.

Lesson 29

  1. Listen to the story in Italian. (Turn off English subtitles.)
  2. Look up the Latin words for those English meanings from Lesson 27, and see if you can find any similarities. Keep in mind that sometimes you might find that there is no translation for a certain word in a different language. That might happen for Latin especially, since the ancient Romans didn’t have some things that are common today, like telephones and email. They also apparently didn’t have a word for elves, which come into this Italian story 🙂 Anyway, write down on your sheet any of the Latin words that you think are related to the Spanish or Italian. Do you think any of the English words are related?

Lesson 30

  1. Listen to the story in Italian one last time.
  2. This time turn on the English subtitles. Click on the CC and see how well you did guessing the meaning of the story.

Lesson 31(*)

  1. (*) OK, back to Spanish again. Listen to this story in Spanish. (Turn off English captioning.) Be on the lookout for any Spanish words that you think look familiar and you think you could guess the meaning. When you see and hear a word that you think is related to the English, pause the video there and copy the Spanish word down (print out another sheet if needed.)
  2. Don’t forget to write the words down exactly, including accent marks. Sometimes one letter or one accent mark can make a big difference in meaning!

Lesson 32

  1. Listen to the story one more time. (Make sure the English subtitles are off.)
  2. Now, get out your sheet and write down in the English column what you think each of the Spanish words that you wrote down on Lesson 31 means. Again, it’s OK if you’re wrong!

Lesson 33

  1. Listen to the story in Spanish again. (Turn off English captioning.)
  2.  Look up the French words for those English meanings you wrote down on Lesson 32, and see if you can find any similarities to the Spanish. Any French word that you think is related to the Spanish, you will write down on your sheet on the line with that Spanish word in it. If you don’t see any similarity, choose a word to write down for that meaning.

Lesson 34

  1. Listen to the story in Spanish again. (Turn off English captioning.)
  2. Look up the Latin words for those English meanings from Lesson 32, and see if you can find any similarities. Write down on your sheet any of the Latin words that you think are related to the Spanish or French. Do you think any of the English words are related?

Lesson 35

  1. Listen to the story in Spanish one more time.
  2. This time, click on the CC to turn on English subtitles. What was it saying? Had you understood the story? Did anything surprise you?

  2. (*) Write them down under the French column of your sheet.  Feel free to pause the video as often as you need to. Once again, you should definitely look at the words on the screen, as well as listen carefully to them; in French, the word may look almost the same as the English when written, but sound COMPLETELY different and strange when pronounced! Or sometimes it may look very different, but sound similar…Here’s another sheet if needed.

  1. One more time with Portuguese now. We’re going to listen to and watch this story in Portuguese. (Turn off English subtitles.) Be sure to follow along with your eyes as you listen with your ears. You are looking for and listening for words that you think you can guess what they mean. As you saw before, sometimes the Portuguese words will sound very different than they look. Also, sometimes the first part of the word will look familiar, but the ending will be strange. Just remove the ending in your mind and guess what the word might mean.
  2. (*) Print out another sheet if needed.
  3. When you find a word that looks familiar, pause the video and write it down under the French column of your sheet (you should probably cross out the word “French” and write “Portuguese”).  Feel free to pause the video as often as you need to.

  2. Now, use this Latin dictionary to look up the English meanings of the Latin words you’ve been seeing all week. Did you guess their meanings correctly?
Lesson 51(*)

  1. This week we’ll do Italian one more time. You remember that it’s a Romance language just like Spanish, right? Listen to and watch this story in Italian. (Turn off English subtitles.) Be sure to follow along with your eyes as you listen with your ears. You are looking for and listening for words that you think you can guess what they mean.
  2. (*) Print out another sheet if needed.
  3. . When you find a word that looks familiar, pause the video and write it down under the French column of your sheet (you should probably cross out the word “French” and write “Italian”).  Feel free to pause the video as often as you need to.

Lesson 55

  1. Listen to the story in Italian one last time.
  2. This time turn on the English subtitles. Click on the CC and see how well you did guessing the meaning of the story.

Lesson 56

  1. Let’s take a break and watch this video on the benefits of learning Spanish!
  2. From this point on, we’re going to be focusing just on Spanish.

Lesson 57

  1. OK, now we’re going to take another step towards training your ears to hear and understand a different language. We’re going back to Spanish.
  2. Listen to this video and try to identify some sounds you are hearing that are different from English. Repeat some words after the speaker. That’s a great way to learn the sounds of a new language.

Lesson 58

  1. Now, listen to this video of speakers of Latin American Spanish speaking in English (the first little part is in Spanish). You’ll hear that they have a strong Spanish accent when speaking English, and some words are difficult for them.
  2. What clues about the sounds of Spanish can you pick up on from listening to their accent? What English sounds do they have trouble with? (Maybe Spanish doesn’t have those sounds.)
  3. What different English sounds do they pronounce as the same sound?
  4. What strange or different sounds do they use in their English? (Maybe those are sounds that Spanish has, which English doesn’t.)
  5. There are no right or wrong answers. But listen carefully (and it’s OK to laugh along with them….you’ll have some trouble with some Spanish words too, so we’re all in the same boat!)

Lesson 59

  1. Today, listen to this video and try to listen for the Spanish word la. It means the, and you’ll hear it a lot. Pretend it’s a hearing test. Raise your hand every time you hear it.
  2. You’re training your ears. The speakers in this video are speaking very slowly, so hopefully it will be easier to pick out the words than if they were talking at normal (fast) speed.

Lesson 60

  1. Now listen to the video one more time, and this time listen for the word una, which means a or an, as in “a lesson” or “an octopus.” When you hear it, STAND UP!
  2. Then sit back down again so you can stand up the next time you hear it!

Lesson 61

  1. Listen to this video (start at 0:34), where they are talking (a bit faster) about food. Make sure the CC (English subtitles) are turned off. Occasionally they show specific words that they want you to learn across the screen in big green letters.
  2. You don’t have to learn them, but try to listen carefully and hear the words they are showing you in the conversation. Usually they show the word right as it’s being said.
  3. It’s OK to back up a bit and listen again if you miss it. Try to hear the word you see on the screen and repeat it as best you can. It doesn’t have to be perfect 🙂

Lesson 62

  1. Listen to this video and each time you hear the word español, shout (or say quietly if you really need to be quiet) español!
  2. Do you know what that word means that you’re shouting? “Spanish” in Spanish!
  3. By the way, the little squiggly thing over the n shows that it’s pronounced like the “n” sound in “onion.”

Lesson 63

  1. Listen to the video again just for about two minutes, and this time, you are listening for the “r” sounds, which you will notice are pronounced differently in Spanish than they are in English.
  2. This is probably the hardest sound in Spanish for English speakers to make. You can turn on the CC (Spanish subtitles) if you want help finding the “r” sounds, and pay attention to how they sound.

Lesson 64

  1. Let’s focus a bit on the “r” sound of Spanish. Just watch this short video on the pronunciation of “r.”
  2. Don’t worry too much about the details; just listen and do your best to repeat.

Lesson 65

  1. Go back to this video and now, listen for the word para (which means for). Each time you hear it, jump up and shout (or say quietly) para!
  2. Do your best on that “r” sound.

Lesson 66

  1. One more time, listen to this video and listen for the very cool-sounding word palabra (which means word). Also listen for the plural palabras (meaning words).
  2. Each time you hear it, turn to the nearest person or pet, and repeat it with a serious look on your face. You’ll freak them out. It’ll be fun.
  3. If you are alone, you can just do the shouting/saying it quietly thing. Again, try your best on that “r” sound.

Lesson 67

  1. Do you remember what a “cognate” is? It’s a word that’s very similar or the same in two different languages. Spanish and English share many cognates.
  2. You actually already know many Spanish words; you just don’t know that you know them!
  3. Watch this video and listen to the speaker pronouncing the 10 cognates in Spanish. Try to guess what each one means just by listening. Write down your answer after each one (feel free to pause the video).
  4. Then you can check your answers below by highlighting after the word “answers.”
  5. Remember, you don’t have to memorize these now, and it’s OK to get some wrong. You’re just working on training your ears!

Lesson 68

Lesson 69

  1. Now let’s do the same thing we did before with capital cities and countries, but this time with Central America (where they also speak Spanish).
  2. It’s not quite as catchy as the rap was, though…but do your best to repeat and learn something about the geography of the area.

Lesson 70

  1. Go to this Voice of America news site in Spanish and listen to about 5 minutes of this news broadcast with news from Venezuela. Listen for about 5 minutes and try to identify as many words as you can.
  2. You’re listening for words that are similar to English, but are (of course) pronounced in a Spanish way. It will help to remember that the English ending “tion,” as in “celebration,” comes out as “ción,” as in celebración. 
  3. You don’t have to write them down today; just listen attentively and see how many words you can pick out.

Lesson 74

  1. Now, before we actually get into actual Spanish lessons, we’ll take two days listening to short, simple videos in which a guy from Spain tells a story all in Spanish, using hand gestures and drawings.
  2. Actually, when you are in a different country and speaking a language you don’t know well, “sign language” and drawings are often used to communicate.
  3. Do your best to follow the story. Don’t feel bad if you don’t really understand much; but you might be surprised! Here’s the first video, about a sick hamster.

Lesson 75

  1. Here’s your next video, about how Spain doesn’t have a tooth fairy. Again, just listen, enjoy, and do your best to understand some things. What does Spain have instead of a tooth fairy?

You aren’t going to know all of the words that you would normally say in English or how to use them, but you can use what you know to get your point across. Don’t worry about being perfect. You only fail if you don’t try.
