IMPROVERS 2, 2014, CLASS 4
Martes, el 12 de febrero. Class 4.
We began by revising emotions in Spanish, and deciding which words we use with Tener, and which with Estar
We also revised the concept of False Friends - Falsos Amigos - and added some new examples
Decepcionado - does not have any connection to "deception", it means "disappointed".
Conductor - a driver
Constipado - to have a cold
Sensible - sensitive
We then practiced the conversation that we began last week, when we asked other people's opinions and gave our own...
¿Qué piensas? - what do you think?
Pienso que.... - I think that...
Estoy de acuerdo - I agree
No estoy de acuerdo - I don't agree
We then moved on to talking about cities
In Spanish we have two equivalents to the English verb To Be - Ser and Estar. It is important to be able to distinguish between them....
Barcelona está en el noreste de España. - We use "está" because we are talking about location - ubicación.
Barcelona es una ciudad turística. - We use "es", which is the verb Ser, because we are describing - descripción.
We learned the names of other cities in Spanish...
We then did an exercise to guess a city that another student had thought of...
¿Está en Europa?
¿Está en la costa?
¿Es una ciudad grande?
¿Es una ciudad turística?
