Interrogatives: Asking Questions

Forming questions in Spanish involves knowing what word order to use, and how to use either an interrogative (question word) or conjugated verb to ask your question.  Asking and answering questions form the heart of communication, so this is very important to know!  Use these resources to explore further.  El Preguntón playlist

Certain core concepts are extremely important for students to master completely.   You can't do math very well if you don't know the difference between "+" and "-".  You can't do Spanish well unless you know the core ideas either.

I always say that students should know these items "backwards, forwards, and in their sleep."  They will be given multiple opportunities to pass.  Their course grade will be an I (Incomplete) until they have mastered both tests at 100%.  Spelling (including accent marks) counts.  Study guides are attached below.

For students in Spanish 2 semester 2, their course grade will be Incomplete until they have mastered both tests at 100%.  Spelling (including accent marks) counts.  Study guides are attached below.

Interrogatives (Question words)
19 Preguntas: Who, what, when, where, why?... etc.  Students must give English to Spanish and Spanish to English with 100% accuracy, including spelling.

To progress from novice to intermediate level as a learner, you need to be able to ask and answer questions in Spanish.
