Question
What does preguntale a otro (a) estudiante si Siempre have estas actividades

Answer
"Preguntar" is a verb that means "to ask."  (I ask= yo pregunto, you ask= tú preguntas, etc.)

"Pregunta" is the command form for "you/tú" and "le" is the indirect object (him/her).

So, "pregúntale" means "Ask him/her" and "a otro estudiante"  specifies that the him/her is "another student"

"Si" with no accent mark on the "i" means "if"

Pregúntale a otro estudiante si = Ask another student if....

Hope this helps!

Expertise

I can answer questions about the Spanish language itself, as I studied Spanish academically and also spent a significant amount of time living in Chile (as a teacher of English). I can also help with issues of translation, and with interpreting slang or other cultural anecdotes. As an experienced teacher, of both EFL and Spanish, I can answer questions as well about teaching, classroom practice, and the use of technology.

Experience

I am a native speaker of English but have studied Spanish since a young age, as well as living in Chile for 5 years. I learned Spanish as a student myself, and have also taught introductory and intermediate level Spanish courses both privately and at the University level. At the graduate level, I have studied linguistics and sociolinguistics, as well as focusing on language teaching and the use of technology in the classroom.
