Oral dialogue part i strategies

Oral Dialogue Part I Strategies

1. Do not give just yes/no responses

2. Do not restate all or essential parts of what the teacher has just said.

3. When you are stuck, say something in Spanish. Silence is very uncomfortable.


Oral dialogue part i strategies1

Oral Dialogue Part I Strategies

1. Each utterance must be a Checkpoint A idea. This can be achieved by adding… but, because, or by adding a question after your simple response.

2. Do not go to the main point immediately. Put yourself in the situation and expand the conversation.


What is checkpoint a

What is Checkpoint A?

  • can rely on visual cues and prior familiarity with the topic;

  • • understand simple language containing only the highest frequency grammatical patterns

  • and vocabulary items;

  • • read the material several times in order to achieve understanding.

Deduce the answer by focusing on key words used in context which will lead you to the correct answer.

Eliminate the answers that you do not hear.

Do not focus on dates and names.

  • Do not assume that words in the reading are repeated in the answer.

Part III Reading Comprehension

  • Relate the main idea with vocabulary that you already know and deduce the meaning of other words by how they are used in the paragraph.

  • Look for cognates and root words to assist you in finding the answer.
