Working with prepositions of place

Prepositions are very difficult no matter the language you are learning. Even in Spanish it's a nightmare (pesadilla) to work with them and they don't know anything about logic; e. g. what's the difference between montar A caballo and montar EN burro. Here you have some exercises to practise with them.

Some exercises for our Friday class

Today is Friday and I want to do something special using the computer and internet. Here we have some exercises to practise vocabulary related to family and adjectives . About this last topic, you can find some more adjective practice about personal descriptions on this video.
To practise a bit with the 3rd person in singular you can find this exercise but remember that the most important thing is to distinguish between /S, Z/ on the one hand and /IZ/ on the other (with the extra syllable). See you in class.

Starting our lessons

Here we are with the new lessons. And here I have new material for you. First of all, have a look at the text book web page in this link.
Some students say they have problems with phonetics because they haven't worked with them before and they don't understand the symbols very well. Don't worry because you'll get used (acostumbrado) to them little by little, but I've found this web page that could help you with them and especially with the pronunciation. You can download this programme to practise.
