IMPROVERS COURSE, AUTUMN 2014, CLASS 4

Lunes, el 20 de octubre, 2014

We began by revising last week's class

El cuerpo - the body
La cabeza - the head
La nariz - the nose
La oreja - the (outer) ear
El oído - the (inner) ear
La boca - the mouth
los labios - the lips
Los dientes - the teeth
el pelo - the hair
la cara - the face

el cuello - the neck
el brazo - the arm
la mano - the hand
el dedo - the finger
el estómago - the stomach
el corazón - the heart
la pierna - the leg
el pie - the foot
el hombro - the shoulder
la espalda - the back
la piel - the skin

Then we talked about various illnesses
Me duele el pie - my foot hurts
Me duelen los pies - my feet hurt
Tengo la pierna rota - I have a broken leg
Tengo el brazo roto - I have a broken arm
Roto is an adjective, and so has to agree with the noun
el brazo roto
la pierna rota

We then learned a simple conversation

¿Qué te pasa? - What's wrong with you?

¡Qué lástima! - that's too bad

Deberías ir al médico - you should go to the doctor.

Me duele la cabeza - my head hurts

Sí, estoy mal.

We also learned some other ways of giving advice
Consejo - advice

Deberías - You should
Debes - you must
Hay que - it is necessary to...

...ir al médico/dentista - go to the doctor/dentist
......descansar - rest
