PRE INTERMEDIATE 2 COURSE, SPRING 2016, CLASS 3

We began by revising the superlatives in Spanish
El animal más grande es la ballena azul
El contado más húmedo es Kerry
Vocab that came up….
Ancho – wide
Estrecho – narrow

We added some other superlatives
Cork es el contado más grande de Irlanda
Denis O’Brien es la persona más rica de Irlanda

We then went on to talk about the future in Spanish using a weather forecast
Una previsión meteorológica – a weather forecast
Cielos despejados – clear skies
Chubascos – showers
Fuertes – heavy
Débiles – weak, light

To make the future we simply add the endings to the infinitives
Endings…
é, ás, á, emos, éis, án
Trabajaré – I will work
Comerán – they will eat
Viajaremos – we will travel
Pasaré la aspiradora – I will hoover

We also have some irregular verbs
Hacer – hare, harás, hará……
Salir – saldré, saldrás, saldrá….
Poner – pondré, pondrás, pondrá, ……
Poder – podré, podrás, podrá…..
Tener – tendré, tendrás, tendrá, tendremos….

WE then looked at some predictions for the future and decided if we agreed or not
Estoy seguro/a de que Irlanda nunca ganará el Mundial de fútbol.  – I am sure that Ireland will never win the World Cup
Probablemente el clima irlandés no mejorará en los próximos 50 años – the Irish climate will probably not improve in the next 50 years.
Mejorar – to improve (major – better)
Empeorar – to get worse (peor – worse)
