Martes, el 08 de abril, 2014

We began by revising some vocab around travel and transport
El billete - the ticket
Una ida y vuelta - a return ticket
Una ida - a one-way
Un viaje - a journey
Viajar - to travel
Un retraso - a delay
Facturación - check in
Salidas - departures
Llegadas - arrivals
La tarjeta de embarque - the boarding card
La puerta - the gate (in an airport)

We then practiced some conversations
¿Puede decirme..? - can you tell me...?
¿Puedo pagar con tarjeta de crédito...? - can I pay by credit card?
¿A qué hora llega el tren....? - What time does the train arrive?
¿A qué hora sale el tren...? - What time does it leave?
¿Cuánto dura el viaje? - How long does the journey take?

We then went on to revise some verbs
Comer - to eat
Beber - to drink
Abrir - to open
Sentarse - to sit down
Quitarse la ropa - to take off clothes
Ver - to see, watch
Bailar - to dance
.....and also clothes
Una chaqueta - a jacket
Pantalones - trousers
Un traje - a suit
Una camisa - a shirt
Una camiseta - a t-shirt

We then did the exercise on p.8 of the course
Verdadero - true
Falso - false
Está bebiendo - she is drinking

We learned the continuous tense in Spanish
Está quitándose la chaqueta - he is taking off his jacket
Está comiendo - he/she is eating
Está bailando - he/she is dancing

We make this tense by combining the verb Estar....
Estoy, estás, está, estamos, estáis, están

......with the gerund, or the -ing form, in Spanish
Bailar (to dance) - bailando (dancing) ........ "ando" for AR verbs
Comer (to eat) - comiendo (eating).......... "iendo" for IR/ER verbs


Está viendo los discos - he is looking at the records
