Welcome to today's Spanish lesson on accents! In this class, we will be exploring the importance of accents in Spanish and how they affect pronunciation and meaning.

But before we begin, let's have a quick warm-up activity to get our brains ready to learn!

Warm-up Activity

  1. Find a partner and introduce yourselves in Spanish. Remember to use the correct accent marks!

  2. Next, come up with as many words as you can that have accents in them. Write them down, and we'll go through them as a class.

Why are Accents Important in Spanish?

In Spanish, accent marks serve a crucial role in indicating the correct stress and pronunciation of words. Without the correct accent mark, a word can completely change its meaning. For example, "éxito" (success) with an accent on the first syllable is very different from "exito" (exit) without an accent.

In addition to pronunciation, accents are also important in written Spanish. They help readers understand the correct meaning of a word, especially in cases where two words may be spelled the same but have different meanings (such as "el" and "él").

So, as you can see, accents are not just fancy decorations on top of letters - they play a vital role in Spanish language and communication.

Let's dive deeper into some of the different types of accents in Spanish and how they work.
