Conversemos juntos supports peer-to-peer communication by enabling your students to work with each other – speaking, listening, and eventually thinking in Spanish without hesitation. Built on the principle that one learns to speak Spanish by speaking, Conversemos juntos employs a variety of activities to emphasize oral communication in a carefully supported manner.
Choose the downpour outside, the weekend, or the upcoming holiday; every student wants to share his or her thoughts and experiences.
Each student is encouraged to fulfill the role of teacher to another student while working on the activities presented. Fitting one of the 50 conversation topics to the moment gives additional context for learning new vocabulary. Students learn and teach each other by taking turns speaking.
Novice learners may require more supervision and will rely heavily on the book for vocabulary and grammar while more advanced students can use the questions presented as a departure point for personal observations or further inquiry.
By speaking to each other, your students will develop the language reflexes necessary to communicate accurately and meaningfully.
