I. Antes de escribir

Answer the following questions about the place where you live during the academic year. Write the answers in paragraph form in Spanish. Write a paragraph between 90-110 words.

  1. En qué lugar de la ciudad vives? ¿Vives en un apartamento, una casa o una residencia en el campus?
  2. ¿Tienes compañer@s de apartamento/casa/habitación? ¿Cómo son? Describe a tus compañer@s.
  3. ¿Cómo es el lugar donde vives? Describe el lugar en detalle (por ejemplo, número de habitaciones, muebles, colores, etc.).
  4. ¿Cuál es tu cuarto/lugar favorito? ¿Por qué?
  5. ¿Quién hace las tareas del hogar? ¿Qué tareas haces tú?
  6. ¿Te gusta vivir en ese lugar o te gusta más la casa de tus padres? Explica tu respuesta. (Your instructor can help you with this question).

II. A escribir 

Now write your paragraph and…

  • Remember to use the vocabulary from the four modules we have seen.
  • Pay attention to gender and number when you use articles, nouns, and adjectives (e.g., la sala es pequeña), and to the correct verb conjugations (e.g., yo vivo, mis amigos y yo vivimos). Be careful with the use of the verb gustar!
  • Use connectors and conjunctions to connect your ideas. For example, use y, también (also), sin embargo (nevertheless), además (also), pero (but). Your instructor can help you to use these words correctly.
  • Complement your paragraph with:
    • At least two photos that show where you live at the university (e.g., neighborhood, outside view of your apartment/photo of your room, etc.).
    • If you use photos that you have not taken, please do not forget to cite the source. We recommend that you use open images (i.e., copyright free). You can find this type of images using the search engine offered by Creative Commons ( Also, you need to provide attributions for all of them.

III. Después de escribir

Now read your paragraph, and focus on the following:

  • Content: Have you included all the information required? Are your photos big and clear enough to convey your message?
  • Grammar:
    • Articles and nouns: Do they agree in gender and number?
    • Gustar, -ar, -er, and -ir, and irregular verbs: Have you conjugated your verbs correctly?
    • Descriptive adjectives: Are your adjectives in the correct position? Do they agree in gender and number with the noun they describe?
    • Possessive adjectives: Do they agree in number (and gender in case of nuestro/a) with the noun they modify?
  • Cohesion: Have you connected your ideas with the suggested connectors and conjunctions?

Go over your text, improve it, and write a new, polished version.
