BEGINNERS 2 COURSE, AUTUMN 2015, CLASS 8


 We began by revising the colours in Spanish
Rojo – red
Azul – blue
Marrón – Brown
Rosa – pink
Negro – black
Blanco – White
Amarillo – yellow
Verde – green
When we use these colours with a noun, they have to agree with the noun
Eg. Un suéter rojo – a red jumper (masculine singular)
Zapatos rojos – red shoes (masculine plural)
Botas rojas – red boots (feminine plural)
We mentioned that adjectives not ending in “o” or “a” do not have a masculine or feminine form
Un suéter azul, una corbata azul
But they do have a plural form
Zapatos azules

We then revised verbs we use to talk about pastimes
Pasatiempos - pastimes
En mi tiempo libre - in my free time
Escuchar música - listen to music
Nadar - to swim
Aprender - to learn
Pasear en el campo - to walk in the countryside
Jugar al golf/fútbol/tenis - to play golf.....
Cantar - to sing
Bailar - to dance
Dormir - to sleep
Leer - to read
Ver la tele - to watch TV
Ir de copas - to go for a few drinks
Ir de compras - to go shopping
Tocar un instrumento - to play an instrument
Montar en bicicleta - to ride a bicycle

¿Qué te gusta hacer en tu tiempo libre? - What do you like doing in your free time?
Me gusta ir al cine - I like going to the cinema
Note: We always use the infinitive with "Me gusta..."
Los deportes – sports

We then looked at how to form the present tense in Spanish
AR verbs
Tocar – (to play an instrument)
Toco – I play, tocas – you play, toca – he/she plays
We don´t need to use the pronoun (yo, tú, él, ella)
ER verbs
Comer – (to eat)
Como – I eat, comes – you eat, come – he/she eats
IR verbs
Vivir – (to live)
Vivo – I live, vives – you live, vive – he/she lives
Irregular verbs
Hacer (to do) – hago, haces, hace
Dormir (to sleep) – duermo, duermes, duerme
Ir – to go – voy, vas, va
Jugar – to play – juego, juegas, juega
                                                                                       
We finished by asking and answering the following question…..

¿Qué haces los fines de semana? – what do you do at the weekends?
