Miercoles y tarea para 28/11

During class on Wednesday, you'll complete the verb categorization chart and turn it in. Then you'll need to complete the entire big indirect object packet. It really isn't that bad. Finally, you be getting a packet to review the use of traer, pedir and servir in the preterite. So turn in the chart on Wednesday and turn in the IO and traer/pedir/servir packet on Monday after break. If you work hard you should be able to get pretty much all of it done in class on Wednesday.

What Gets Lost in Translation?

Here is the podcast we started to listen to about language, culture and translation. What happens when things get lost in translation?

Tarea para 21/11

Practice stem-changing verbs in the preterite. Remember none of the -AR and -ER verbs change stems in the preterite: only -IR verbs do. There are two types of stem-changes with -IR preterite verbs: e to i and o to u and only the Ud and Uds forms change. Do parts A and B on

Also, do this additional verb conjugation drill. Only one of these verbs is stem-changing, the rest are irregulars that we have previously studied.

Do up to and through "Quiz 40" in the indirect object pronoun packet that we started today.

!Que les vaya bien!
