Question:

How can I learn all of the Spanish verb conjugations, especially with all of the irregulars?

Answer:

Different methods work for different people! It can be helpful to make verb charts (which I can show in sessions) that you can flip back to when you get stuck to refresh your memory. Listening to music in which a particular tense, whether simple or compound, is used can also be really helpful! Music can get stuck in our heads pretty easily, so why not have a verb conjugation stick with it? The most helpful way to remember verb conjugations, though, is to practice using them and to hear them frequently. It's an aspect of Second Language Acquisition called "input" and "output." Learners need to hear what they're trying to learn ("input") and then produce what they're learning ("output")!

Question:

How do I figure out what the thesis of my argument is?

Answer:

My advice is to first write an outline of what you want to argue. After jotting down the main points you want to prove, it's easier to find the thread that connects these points. Don't worry about making your thesis a "three-part thesis" or crafting it so that it prompts a five-paragraph essay format (unless specifically required, of course); the most important thing is that your thesis is an arguable claim and that you can support it with evidence.

Question:

Is the letter "y" a vowel or a consonant?

Answer:

The letter "y" can be a vowel or a consonant, depending on the word in which it is used. In the words "myth" and "hymn," "y" is used like a vowel and is pronounced like a vowel. In words such as "beyond" or "yesterday," however, "y" is a consonant. Look out for the variation between an "i" sound and a strong "Y" sound!
