Lesson 4 Dialogue Assignment

PART 1: If you’ve practiced the phrases from Lesson 4 (check out pages 183-186 of the book), you’re ready to see these phrases in a real-life context.

PART 2: You should also practice these sentences, with correct pronunciation.(All of these sentences are from the dialogue above, so you can hear how they’re pronounced in the video.) We haven’t learned the meaning of every word yet, but it’s important to start pronouncing whole sentences, even before understanding them.

PART 3: If you’re a member, record yourself saying these sentences at this link so that we can critique your pronunciation.

  • I only want that she be well and that you be well: Sólo quiero que ella esté bien y que tú estés bien.
  • Yes, Sebastián, he isn’t around anymore: Sí, Sebastián, él ya no está.
  • He’s not around? What do you mean he’s not around?: ¿No está? ¿Cómo que no está?
  • I want to be with her: Quiero estar con ella.
