This week we revised the possessive pronouns – Los pronombres posesivos.
Mi coche – my car                            Mis coches – My cars
Tu libro – your book                        Tus libros – Your books
Su abrigo – his/her coat                Sus abrigos – his/her coats

We read an email about two people talking about their new apartment and we underlined the possessive pronouns.
Nuestro ático – Our attic
Nuestro dormitorio – Our bedroom
Su estudio – his/her office
Su dormitorio – his/her/their bedrooms
Nuestra au pair – Our au pair
Su dormitorio – his/her/bedroom
Nuestras cosas – our stuff

Some words we did not understand:
Correo electrónico – email
Sentimos mucho – we are very sorry
Por fin – Finally
El cuarto pequeño – the small room
Ya hemos ordenado nuestras cosas – We have already tidied up our stuff
Aún / todavía – still

We also talked about the pronouns to describe what is ours:
Este es mi libro – This is my book               Este es el mío – This is mine
Este es tu bolso – this is your bag              Este es el tuyo – This is yours
Esta es su casa – this is his/her house    Esta es la suya – This is his /hers
Este es nuestro hijo-this is our son         Este es el nuestro – This is ours
Este es vuestro dinero – this is your money     Este es el vuestro – This is yours
Esta es su casa – this is their house          Esta es la suya – This is theirs

We worked on a dialogue. We completed it and we listened to it to check our answers.
¿Dígame? – Hello?
Hola Gustavo, soy Ana. ¿Puedes traer TU estéreo a mi fiesta? EL MÍO está estropeado – Hi Gustavo, this is Ana. Can you bring your stereo to my party? Mine is broken down.
Lo siento pero EL MÍO está estropeado también – I´m sorry but mine is broken down too.
¿Qué puedo hacer? – What can I do?
¿Por qué no llamas a Enrique? SU estéreo es muy bueno y SUS cds son buenos también – Why don´t you ring Enrique? His stereo is very good and his CDs are good too.

During the lesson we also talked about the words that are stressed on their third last syllable. They are called ESDRÚJULAS. Some info about it:
note: sílaba tónica means “the syllable that is stressed”
