Last night I had my second spanish lesson, I really enjoyed myself… it was all about :
- Saying Hello and Goodbye
- Introducing yourself
- getting to know people
Buenos dias = Good Morning (this can be used in the mornings up to early afternoon and also use if you have not yet had your lunch)
Buenos tardes = Good afternoon & good evening (if its still light outside)
Buenos noches = Good evening (if dark outside)
Como esta? = How are you?
Bien, Gracias = Fine thanks
Y Usted? = and you?
(Yo) soy… = I am …
(Usted) es…. = You are….
These 2 can be turned around.. for instance
Soy yo = thats me
es usted = are you
Getting to know people
Commo se llama? = Whats your name? (usted)
Como te llama = Whats your name (tu)
Me llamo = My name is
Perdon? = excuse me?
Mucho gusto = pleased to meet you
Encantada (f) or Encantado (m) = I am delighted
Sooo thats what I learned last night… I have some homework to do for next week, whereby I have to respond in spanish to questions being asked… there are 4 parts to this excecise, here is an example…
- Buenos dias
- (I have to greet and introduce myself) = Buenos dias yo soy Sarah…
- Mucho gusto. yo soy patricia fonseca
- (I didnt catch her name & have to say excuse me?) Perdon?
- Patricia Fonseca
- (I then have to say I’m pleased to meet her) Mucho gusto Patricia
I bought my Collins Spanish Dictionary & Grammar book (ISBN 0-00-722388-9) last night after my lesson, I also have a list of 2 other books which will help me, they give excercises and tutorials too which will help me on my way … I’m off to finish my homework and also to practice pronouncing the alphabet again 🙂 .
I’m also getting the kids involved and teaching them what I learn too.. so that we can all practice together…
until next tuesday … Hasta luego (see you later)
