As we have been celebrating diversity this week I thought it would be nice for Room 10 to learn to speak some words in a different language. This was a great opportunity for Chaska to teach us how pronounce the colours in Spanish.
She came up the front and read out the words and then we had a try. Chaska was very good at giving us feedback on how well we were pronouncing the words!
We learned that the letter j is pronounced as an 'h' sound in words such as red /rojo.
The trickest word to say was anaranjado/orange. We need some more practise with that!
Here are the words we learned
Thank you for your expertise Chaska!
Chaska said there were variations for some colour names too.
