Title: Using the Interpretive Mode to Introduce Verb Formation
Description:

This lesson is intended to be the first introduction to verb conjugations in level one. This introduction to conjugation relies on students discovering verb conjugations and testing a hypothesis by using the interpretive mode of communication. Students will initially watch a short clip in the target language, create a hypothesis on how verbs are conjugated, and finally will put their hypothesis into action in a simple interpretive mode activity.
