In case any of you are up for a laugh (and I mean laughing at me), check out the Spanish homework I just submitted:

1.)
Imagínese que Ud. es el/la director/a de mercadotecnia de una compañía de telecomunicaciones. Tiene una junta importante mañana con los otros directores de la compañía. ¿Qué les va a decir?

Conteste usando UNA de las expresiones a continuación:

Quiero que Uds. . . .
Insisto en que . . .
Es importante que . . .


Quiero que Uds me escuchen, porque tenemos problemas muy grandes. Hay gatos locos que viven en nuestra oficina. Temo que los gattos vayan arruinar nuestros negocios.

2.)

Los directores le han dicho a Ud. que hay un problema con la promoción del nuevo producto.

Ud. les pregunta, "¿cuál es el problema?"

Ellos le responden:

Dudo que . . .
Es imposible que . . .
Negamos que . . .

Termine UNA de las frases con una oración completa. ¡Sea creativo/a!


Conocemos estes gatos! Negamos que puedamos terminar el plan de la promoción a tiempo. Estes gatos locos pidan que nosotros los alimentan todo el tiempo! Es muy caro y una distracción muy grande. Queremos que es necesario que venten la compania.

3.)

Ud. piensa en el problema. Claro que Ud. no está de acuerdo con lo que le dijeron, pero sabe que hay una resolución.
Respóndales a los directores utilizando UNA de las frases a continuación.

Creo que . . .
Estoy seguro/a que . . .
No hay duda de que . . .

Estoy sugura que hay una otra solución. A les proveamos capacitación. Pueden trabajar con nosotros, o podemos ventarlos al circo. Que piensan, mis colegas?

Wow, I'm impressed. What I'm not getting is why you keep mentioning some crazy cats?

because the assignment is just so boring. i can't imagine a more boring use of a language than talking about meetings. And my cat was going crazy, so I brought him - and a million of his friends - into the board room.

This is related to the reason that I know how to say things like, "I would like a large pizza with many leaches" and "Oh no! I have lost my geologist! Do you know where I can get another?" in Russian.

Ha! Sounds as useful as my German: "Help! I've been struck by lightning!" and "I am a watermelon."

Both said with pretty good accents, I'm told.

I'm surprised to see Cema in G'club. Those guys have a decent MBA program, too.
