The following chart is one I created for my Spanish students to help with sentence structure and the two moods, which I refer to as environments. I share it with you here as a reference aid for your initial Spanish writing practice. By no means is this a complete and perfect tool as it is not intended to replace the deeper understanding of the Spanish moods and therefore open to scrutiny and feedback. In addition, I tell the students that when creating complex sentences using both moods, they may only travel horizontally and never vertically or diagonally within the four quadrants.
On the motivation to study a foreign language… Mostly I was motivated by my personal relationships/friendships with my Spanish teachers throughout Waldorf [Education]. They were always people who inspired and challenged me.
