IMPROVERS 3 COURSE, SPRING 2014, CLASS 4

Martes, el 29 de abril, 2014

We began by revising the continuous in Spanish

Está comiendo - he is eating
Están bailando - they are dancing.

We then looked at reflexive verbs with the continuous
Sentarse - to sit down
(the 'se' tells us that the verb is reflexive)
Está sentándose - he is sitting down.

We can put the reflexive pronoun - se - before or after the verb....
Está sentándose .... or....
Se está sentando.

Está afeitándose - he is shaving (or se está afeitando)
Está vistiéndose - he/she is getting dressed (se está vistiendo)
Está relajándose - he/she is relaxing.  (se está relajando)

We moved on to talk about television
Las noticias - the news
Las telenovelas - soap operas
Los documentales - documentaries
Las series policíacas - police series
Los programas de entrevistas - chat shows
Los programas de deporte - sports programmes
Las comedias - comedies
Los concursos - contests
Los reality shows

We also revised how to talk about liking
Me gusta el vino
Me gustan los perros
(gustan for plural)
Le gusta el vino - he/she likes
Le gustan los documentales - he/she likes documentaries

We listened to some people talking about the TV they watch and learned some vocab
Olvidar - to forget
Interestante - interesting
Urgencias - A & E

We then talked about what we watch on TV and gave reasons for what we like
Es divertido - it's entertaining
Es gracioso - it's funny
Es fascinante - it's fascinating
Es relajante - it's relaxing
Me gustan los personajes - I like the characters
We then talked about films
Las películas - films
Las películas de ciencia-ficción - science fiction films
Las películas de risa - comedies
Las películas de terror - horrors
Las películas de época - period films, historical films.
Trata de.... - it's about....
Los personajes principales - the main characters
La película está ambientada en.... - the film is set in.....


For homework we are going to use the expressions learned to describe the story of a film that we know, without mentioning the title. Then the others in the class will have to guess what the film is called.
