About This Assignment

An important part of learning any language is learning to speak and communicate. This lets you express your own ideas and opinions, tell other people about yourself, and describe your likes and dislikes. In this course, you learned vocabulary and phrases to discuss time, days of the week, likes, dislikes, and many different actions. For your final project, please prepare and deliver a three-minute presentation to describe your schedule.

Here are some guidelines to follow for your project:

  • Choose whether to discuss your daily or weekly schedule, making sure you can comfortably speak on the topic for three minutes.
  • You should use a variety of -ar, -er, and -ir verbs in the present tense.
  • Also, include descriptions using the vocabulary you learned for discussing pastimes and community.
  • Record yourself delivering your speech using a camera and save the recording. (Your computer webcam should work just fine.) Make sure you set up the recording to capture your gestures and expressions.
  • You may refer to notes or index cards during the speech; however, please be sure to maintain eye contact with the camera.
  • You are not required to use visual aids for your presentation, but you are encouraged to do so if you feel they would be helpful or appropriate.
  • Avoid using translators, since they are not reliable.
