Used in Course: Not used in course

Comment: I used the preterite tense as a teaching-learning activity several times with my
class. Preterite Tense: excercises 7, 8 & 9 of the conjugation of preterite in
Spanish, present a good way for sts to practice the conjugation of past tense of
both regular and irregular verbs...Such exercises also give the sts the
opportunity to learn and to correct their mistakes while they are doing the
exercises...I think my sts really found the drills fun, challenging and a
different technique to acquire the language..Since I asked them to time
themselves, their comment was they prefer not be timed....
My only pedagogical sugesstion is that the drills seem to be out of context, it
would be great to present all the verbs either in a story or in a real context
so that the sts can see the applications of preterite tense in Spanish.

Technical Remarks:
