We have had extra practice on greeting your friends in Spanish and asking how they are, using numbers to add and count among others things, and pointing to objects and saying their names using the indefinite or definite articles.  So please:

• Remember to reinforce the following material by practicing the given patterns on
use of colors, animals and shapes and numbers in combination with the indefinite  and definite articles through Alan's Technique. Remember that you must be able to use the articles in singular and plural forms in sentences (See pp. 4-14, book: ¿Qué Tal?  ¡Viva el Español! Spanish 1A).

Remember to:
•  Increase your vocabulary by using "Alan's technique (from FluentU blogs@fluentu.com):
      -  Before you go into the shower, identify 5 words that you want to learn.
      -  Create a sentence that links those 5 words.
      -  The sentence doesn't have to make sense. It just has to be highly memorable.
      -  Keep repeating that sentence to yourself in the shower.
      -  See if you can remember it until you're done showering.

Voila!

You'll find that the words are stuck in your head."
