Beginner Spanish Practice MP3 CourseBeginner Spanish Practice Video Course

This is an interactive Spanish video where you have the opportunity to practice Spanish at beginner level with a native Spanish speaker.

In this Spanish lesson we will practice more about telling the time in Spanish. This follows on from the previous lesson which also looked at telling the time in Spanish. Knowing how to read a clock in Spanish is another of those basic skills that are totally essential if you are to survive in a Spanish-speaking country. It is also a great way to start practicing with people on the street and strike up a conversation. In this Beginner Practice Lesson we will look specifically at relevant questions related to telling the time in Spanish and how to answer them. We will practice describing in Spanish what we do at different times of the day using some of the useful, basic verbs we have seen previously in the course.

Please try to watch the video first before looking at the lesson notes. Answers to all tasks involved in the lesson will be given at the end of the post. Try not to look at the answers until you have tried a good few times to give your own responses.

This lesson practices the information taught in Beginner Spanish Lesson 30: Telling the time in Spanish (Part 2) from my Beginner Spanish Course.
