Hello lovely people, it's Friday which means we get a new set of weekend workouts, literally my best part of the week.
Inma, I love the dictations, even though I'm not very good at them yet, however I have two general questions about them, and wondered if you could help.1. Vocabulary - When I listen to lessons, even lessons A1, I encounter vocabulary that I don't know. When the dictacions are written, are you using this as an opportunity to expand our vocabulary, or are you writing within what you expect us to know? I don't mind which, I just wondered if my vocab is weak. I use it as a learning opportunity!
2. English translation - I believe that the dictations are the only place where we don't see an English translation of what was said / written. Is this intentional? As per my point above, I sometimes don't know the words even when they are written, and I use SpanishDict to translate. This has some disadvantages, for example in today's A1 exercise, Spanishdict translated "partes" meant as anywhere in your text, to "private parts", as in on a human :-)Thanks, now back to work.
Thank you very much for your detailed reply, all is good now. And three more days to Friday
