HAVING TROUBLE MEMORIZING?
-- Use flashcards to help you recognize words. THIS IS NOT A GOOD DRILL FOR SPELLING!
--Write the Spanish/French on one side and the English on the other.
--Write the words that are odd in a different color to help you remember them…(accents, stem-changers, “el día”, etc.)
--Always go English to Spanish/French…
--For every 3 times you do your flashcards English to Spanish/French…do them 1 time Spanish/French to English.
--DO NOT take the time to type your words into the computer as a written drill…it is NOT effective and is A WASTE OF TIME!
HAVING TROUBLE SPELLING?
The key to spelling correctly is writing your words out several times...it's a drill!
Use these steps:
--Write your vocabulary words out SEVERAL times each.
--Make a “quiz” in English – you fill in the Spanish/French without using notes. Always pay attention to details (accents, articles, etc.)
--Check your answers.
--REWRITE the ones you missed SEVERAL times, again…
--Retake a “quiz” of the ones you missed…and repeat.
--Slowly mix the trouble words back in with the one's you know well, and retake your quiz!
