Chapter Objectives:

Before beginning this chapter, it is important to recognize which skills and tasks you will be expected to learn to perform. Do you already have some previous skills or knowledge in these areas that you can use to your advantage? Are there any topics that you foresee being difficult? If so, it is a good idea to pursue additional assistance to get ahead of any potential issues. You are the master of your education—you have the power to take ownership of your learning!

In this chapter, I will:

Discuss everyday activities

Express obligation and necessity

Ask and provide information

Describe likes, dislikes and preferences

Discuss cultural, historic, economic, and geographic information about Mexico

Chapter Overview:

Welcome to chapter 3, “Qué hacemos.” In this chapter you will describe the way you and others live and examine how daily activities can reflect culture and other values. You will begin by sharing some of your daily habits and routines with classmates. Afterward, you will reflect on how those daily routines may or may not be representative of your values, perspective, or culture. Finally, you will discuss what parts of your routine are important to you and what parts you hope to change. You will talk with classmates about what prevents you from living the life you want to live and discuss how some of those obstacles might be addressed. As always, you will build vocabulary and grammar skills to help you express yourself and understand what others share
