Practice Pronouncing Expressions About Familias and Celebraciones!
Dígalo is a game that enables students to simultaneously practice pronunciation and memorize vocabulary. On one side of the card is a phonetic version of a common expression, if not a whole sentence, associated with the theme of this chapter, chosen to simulate how one would use words and conjugate verbs in that context. On the other side is the actual Spanish version that the student’s teammates will guess, and the English equivalent, upside-down. Vocabulary inspired by the Realidades textbook series by Pearson. Some assembly required upon printing.

About the Author
Audrey Yates Irias started learning Spanish at age 10 in a FLEX program in her elementary school, because her aunt lived in Puerto Rico. She was so enamored with learning languages that she dove in head first, and took multiple years of Spanish and French in high school. Following her passion, she was a double major in Spanish and French Education and a TESOL minor, at Illinois State University—during which time she studied in Spain and France. She taught for 11 years in both traditional as well as virtual classrooms. In 2016, she earned her master’s in Translation and Interpreting from the University of Illinois.
Audrey enjoys spending time with her daughter, dancing, teaching students one-on-one, and developing curriculum that benefits students and teachers of World Languages.
