ELEMENTARY COURSE, AUTUMN 2018, CLASS 9


This week we revised the past tense (Pretérito) and we learnt how to express dates in Spanish.
1000 mil
800 ochocientos
900 novecientos
1975 mil novecientos setenta y cinco
1967 mil novecientos sesenta y siete
2000 dos mil
2018 dos mil dieciocho
We worked on the exercise on page 21. Some words that we did not understand
Pasé mi infancia y juventud – I spent my childhood and youth
Terminé – I finished
Ese mismo año – That same year
Tuve a mi primera hija – I had my first daughter

We also worked on the verbs from first person to third person
Nací – nació
Fui – fue
Terminé – terminó
Me casé – se casó
Trabajé – trabajó
Estuve – estuvo
Viví – vivió
Tuve – tuvo

To wrap up our lesson, in pairs we talked about our events in life.  Some examples:
Nací en mil novecientos ochenta – I was born in 1980
En el año dos mil fui a la Universidad – I went to college in 2000
Me casé en dos mil dos – I got married in 2002
Me mudé a España en dos mil diez – I moved to Spain in 2010
Volví a Irlanda en dos mil catorce – I returned to Ireland in 2014
