Basic Spanish, Lesson 21, Fun Drill

I taught a Spanish class today that the students really enjoyed, so I decided to try to see if I could duplicate it a little here for you guys.

¿Quieres ir a la puerta? = Do you want to go to the door?

Si, quiero ir a la puerta. = Yes, I want to go to the door.

Va a la puerta. = Go to the door.

¿A donde vas? = Where do you go?

Voy a la puerta. = I go to the door.
¿Donde estas? = Where are you?

Estoy a la puerta. = I am at the door.

¿Quieres ir a tu silla? = Do you want to go to your chair?

Si, quiero ir a mi silla. = Yes, I want to go to my chair.

Va a tu silla. = Go to your chair.

¿A donde va? = Where do you go?

Voy a mi silla. =  go to my chair.

Voy a mi silla. = I go to my chair.

Siente te. = Have a seat.

¿Donde estas? = Where are you?

Estoy en mi silla. = I am at my chair.//I am on my chair.

***********************************

Now, let’s see if you can do what my students did.

Teacher: ¿Quieres ir a la puerta?

Student: _____________________

Teacher: ¿A donde vas?

Student: _____________________

Teacher: ¿Donde estas?

Student: _____________________

Teacher: ¿Quieres ir a tu silla?

Student: _______________________

Teacher: Va a tu silla. Siente te.

Teacher: ¿Donde estas?

Student: ______________________

Teacher: ¿Quieres ir a casa? = Do you want to go home?

Student: Si, quiero ir a casa. = Yes, I want to go home. ///No, no quiero ir a casa. = No, I don’t want to go home.

Teacher: Vamanos a casa. = Let’s go home.

Now, do this drill with another person again and again until it gets easy. I began just by walking to the door, and saying to my student, “Voy a la puerta.” After that, I stood at the door and said, “Estoy a la puerta.”Next, I walked to the chair at the front of the classroom and said, “Voy a mi silla.” After I sat down, I said, “Estoy en mi silla.” After that, the students took turns, and I told them to go to the door one by one and asked them all the questions. We did it about three times, and then they finally all began getting it right. First, figure out what the answers to the questions are by looking under the pictures, then let someone ask you the questions while you go to the door and then back to your chair, and you answer all the questions as you are going.
