INTERMEDIATE COURSE, 2017, CLASS 9

To begin we learned what we call the Past Continuous, or the Pasado Continuo in Spanish

Estar + gerund
in other words...

estaba + verb-ando
            verb-iendo

Yo estaba cocinando - I was cooking
Nosotros estabamos bailando - we were dancing
Ella estaba nadando - she was swimming.

this has the same meaning as the Imperfecto...
Estaba cocinando = cocinaba
Estábamos bailando = bailábamos
Estaba nadando = nadaba

We did some practice of this on p.15
Carlos estaba tocando la guitarra cuando el incendio empezó.
Carlos tocaba la guitarra cuando el incendio empezó.

We then listened to Maria Jesus and Rosa telling stories...
tomar el fresco - to get fresh air
saltar - to jump
tejanos - jeans
sospechar - to suspect
sonámbulo - a sleepwalker
encerrar - to chase after
de broma - joking
pegar un susto - to get a fright
