A little on pronunciation… H – silent hola (hello) hasta luego (see you later) hoy (today) hacer (to do, to make) J – makes the “h” sound junio (June) julio (July) jugar (To Play) trabajar (To Work) Ll – makes the “y” sound me llamo (I call myself) Ñ – ca ny on año (year) mañana ( tomorrow, morning ) cumpleaños (birthday) Qu – “k” ¿ Qué ? (What?) ¿ Quién ? (Who)


What about all those letters with lines on them and upside symbols? Many vowels in the Spanish language have accent marks over them. They help us know how to pronounce the word. They are an important part of the language so make sure you add them when needed. Also, when you put a question mark or exclamation point at the end of a sentence, you need to put the mark upside down at the beginning… ¿ Cómo estás ? How are you? Estoy así así . (I’m okay.) ¿ Dónde vives ? Where do you live? Vivo en Raleigh. (I live in Raleigh? ¿De dónde eres ? Where are you from? Soy de Canada.


You can also do a Google search for your p articular computer. Search “How To Make Spanish Characters on the keyboard.”


The Basics Señor (Sr.) = Mr. Señora (Sra.) = Mrs. Señorita (Srta.) = Miss


Three ways to tell your name: Soy…. I am… Me llamo … I call myself.. Mi nombre es … My name is…


How Are You? ¿ Cómo estás ? ¿ Qué tal ? Muy = very

 La Cultura de Costa Rica When you read through the lessons on culture and traditions in Costa Rica, be sure to take thorough notes.  As you move through the information, think about how your day-to-day life and family traditions/values are the same and different from people who are from Costa Rica. Be specific in your notes.  There are several culture lessons within each unit.  At the end of every unit, you will complete an “ Actividad Cultural” which includes reflections about the  specific information  you learned in each culture lesson and how they compare to your own life.  You will save time by referring to your notes versus trying to go back into the lesson.
