INTERMEDIATE COURSE, SPRING 2014, CLASS 4

Miércoles, el 30 de abril, 2014

In this lesson, we learnt and reviewed some adjectives that are used to describe.
Los adjetivos descriptivos

Firstly, we read a short story called La historia de Paula and we underlined the adjectives we found in the text.
Some words and expressions we did not understand:
El chico más celoso del mundo me dejó – The most jealous boy in the world, dumped me.
Yo era la persona más dulce – I was the sweetest person
Tras la ruptura – after the breakup
Mi ansia por recorrer el mundo era indescriptible – My eagerness to go around the world was indescribable.
Partí hacia Nueva York – I headed off to New York.
Me quedé con la boca abierta – My jaw hit the floor
Un restaurante muy pijo – A posh restaurant
Un camarero bastante charlatán – A rather chatty waiter
Un señor bastante pesado – a rather boring person
Un bebé muy llorón – A crying baby
Dar la murga – A very colloquial expression that is used when somebody does not stop talking about something you do not care and you just want him/her to be quiet. You can say ¡No me des la murga! Murga can be also translated as ruido: don’t make noise!
Salir de marcha – to go partying
Criatura – baby
¡Y a mi qué! – I don’t care! Also ¡A mi qué me importa!
De camino a mi casa – on my way home

In pairs, we completed the chart with the adjectives we found before and the ticked the possible combinations we could do.

When the chart was completed, we discussed these questions in pairs and then we shared our answers:
¿Eres una persona curiosa? ¿Te gusta visitar nuevos lugares? – Are you a curious person? Do you like visiting new places ?
¿Eres una persona celosa? – Are you a jealous person?
¿Te gusta disfrutar de paisajes encantadores o prefieres quedarte en casa? – Do you like enjoying charming landscapes or do you prefer staying at home?
¿Te consideras una persona charlatana o eres una persona tímida? – Do you consider a chatty person or are you a shy person?
¿Alguna vez has vivido una experiencia inolvidable? ¿Dónde? ¿Con quién? – Have you ever live an unforgettable experience? Where? With whom?
¿Alguna vez has visitado un monumento majestuoso? ¿Dónde está ese monumento? – Have you ever visited an impressive monument? Where is that monument?
¿Has conocido a una persona pesada? ­¿Por qué era pesado o pesada? – Have you met a boring person? Why was he/she boring?
