Things to remember about Spanish:

1. The easiest way to learn the vocabulary is to make flashcards. Spanish on one side and English on the other.

2. Learning a language requires some memorization and LOTS OF PRACTICE.

3. Practice makes perfect. Going home and practicing how to say things and what things mean will only help you. Always go with your first instinct. (You will usually be right).

4. Study your vocabulary EVERY night. Recognize the words and what they mean. Don't know a word? Look it up. There is a dictionary in the back of your textbook and there are Spanish dictionaries available to you. Spell them out in Spanish. Wirte each word out multiple times, sound it out, say it, repeat it.

5. ALWAYS ask for help BEFORE it gets to be TOO late. I am here to help you, but I don't know if you need help unless you ask. Let me help you....

Here's a cute, simple story about why it is important to be bilingual:

Once upon a time, there were three mice and one cat.

The first mouse ran and the cat was hunting him. The mouse said "Eek! Eek!" And the cat ate him.

The second mouse ran and the cat was hunting him. The mouse said "Eek! Eek!" And the cat ate him.

The third mouse, who was very intelligent, ran and the cat was hunting him. The mouse said "Woof! Woof!" And the cat ran away.

Moral of the story: It's important to be bilingual.
