Your most important weekly homework assignment is talking with a fluent Spanish speaker. The best conversation partners are ones you can meet with face-to-face each week. It's good to ask for only 10 minutes weekly of their time, so as not to be an imposition to them. Most Hispanics will happily give 10 minutes a week to someone learning their language.
Sometimes your conversation partner might only be able to speak with you by phone, Zoom, or online chat, which is fine, as well.
If, some week, your speaking partner is unable to talk with you before the Homework Sheet is due on Sunday at Noon, turn in the Homework Sheet on time, anyway. Do not wait to turn in your HW Sheet, and take the lower grade.
You can make-up this assignment later by meeting with your partner for a longer period of time, or by having two meetings with your partner in one week.
If you make up the speaking time later, ask your mom or dad to email your teacher, saying that you completed the assignment, and your grade will be raised. Here are some places to find face-to-face conversation partners:
Relatives or friends of friends
Local ministries to the Hispanic community, such as Pregnancy Resource Centers
Public libraries, which often have bilingual conversation groups, or even ask for the librarian who speaks Spanish
Local Hispanic stores and restaurants
Non-Hispanic stores, like Walmart
Online Conversation Partners

Wednesday evening Spanish conversation group at the Salmon Creek library location. The Salmon Creek location is the best for language learners in Vancouver apparently.
