We will repeat them two more times so that you will have the hang of how to say it.

Raeven: Se escribre ereh, ah, eh, veh, eh, eneh (Raeven) Y tu?

Tyler: Se escribre teh, eee-gree-eh-gah, eleh, eh, ereh


2."Courtesy Phrases"

We are teaching people courtesy phrases so they can learn how to use polite manners. This will help you when someone gives you something or helps you out. We would start by teaching them simple phrases like i.e. If some one gives u something you would say Gracias (Gra-see-as)-thank you ,and they would say Denada (Dae-nad-a)-your welcome. Or If someone ask's you how are you, you would say Muy Bien (Muy-be-in) - Very Good Ytu? (E-Two)  -and you. We will repeat them until the student or whoever understands the whole concept of courtesy phrases.      



Raeven: !hola!

Tyler: !Hola!

Raeven: Como estas?

Tyler: !Muy Bien!  Y tu?

Raeven: Igualmente

Tyler: OK



We are also teaching people how to say numbers and phone numbers. They are also useful in plenty different ways. We will start off by teaching them 1-10 i.e. uno,dos,tres,cuatro,cinco,sies,siete,ocho,nueve,diez! Then the pattern will change 1-15  i.e. once, doce, trece, catorce, quince. But after those 15 numbers the pattern changes again 16-20 i.e. diecisies, diecisiete, dieciocho, diecinueve, diecinueve, viente. The pattern stays the same from 20-100. If you know all the ten's and mutiples of ten you will know the pattern. The pattern is Viente, Treinta, Cuarenta, Cicuenta, Sesenta, Setenta, Ochenta, Noventa, Cein. After every number u say the numbers 1-9 until you get to the next whole number. This can be used if someone ask's how old your are or if they was askin for your number.

Raeven: !Hola!

Tyler: Cual es tu número de teléfono ?

4.Weather Explanation!

We feel that everyone should know the weather. So why not teach them? We will start by teaching them how to spell the weather, and seasons. Then we will teach them how to say it. This wont be hard it will only take two lessons. Lesson 1 spelling the four seasons such as el  otoño (autumn), el invierno (winter),  

La primaver (spring) el verno( summer). We will also teach them how to spell the weather, such as frio (cold), calor ( warm), viento (windy) sol (sunny), fresco(cool). This can be useful when someone ask's you whats the weather like or how does it feel today you could answer them with a correct answer better than guess.
