Basic Spanish | Lesson 19 | Telling dates Basic Spanish | Lesson 19 | Telling dates Presentation Transcript

  • ¡Hola! Lesson 19 on Basic Spanish!
  • Revision English Spanish Monday lunes Tuesday martes Wednesday rcoles Thursday jueves Friday viernes Saturday bado(s) Sunday domingo(s) Same plural form
  • Revision English Spanish Today is Monday Hoy es lunes What day is it tomorrow? a es manaña?
  • We use el to express ‘on’ when referring to a particular day of the week and los to express ‘on’ when the action occurs repeatedly: I’m not dancing on Saturday = No bailo el bado I don’t study on Saturdays = No estudio bados Revision : Using days of weeks in conversations
  • 1 Telling dates Lesson objectives
  • In today’s lesson we will learn about asking and telling dates Dates
  • Now that we know how to tell what day it is, let us also learn how to tell the date It is essential to know the names of the months for this Months = Mes mes . . .? means ‘In what month….?’ Let’s get started…
  • Names of months English Spanish January enero February febrero March marzo April abril May mayo June junio July julio August agosto September septiembre (or setiembre) October octubre November noviembre December diciembre not capitalized
  • If you notice carefully, most of the names of months in Spanish are similar to their English versions Eg: February = febrero May = mayo June = junio July = julio Remembering names of months
  • If you remember the numbers from 0-15 well, it is very simple to form the remaining. For example: 6 = Seis 16 = Dieciséis (note the accent mark) 26 = Veintiséis (note the accent mark) 36 = Treinta y seis 7 = Siete 17 = Diecisiete 27 = Veintisiete 37 = Treinta y siete Do you remember
  • Lets now learn how to ask ‘What is today’s date?’ As we know, in Spanish, possession (eg: today’s) is shown by using ‘de’ which also translates to ‘of’ (eg: today’s -> of today) Hence, we will ask ‘What is (the) date of today?’ Asking dates
  • Asking dates What is today’s date? (What is the date of today?) l es la fecha de hoy? Remember : With ‘what + is (es) we use ¿Cuál?
  • We learnt earlier, that Cuál is usually used before 'es' and other forms of 'ser' to mean ‘What’ What is (the) date of today? = ¿ l es la fecha de hoy? Do you remember?
  • To tell dates we say: the + number + of + month = el + number (except for 1st) + de + month We will learn how to tell years in future, for now we’ll focus on telling dates of the month Telling dates
  • Hoy es… el + number (except for 1st) + de + month Example : el ocho de enero = the 8th of January (January 8th) Telling dates
  • To tell the first day of each month we don’t use uno, we use primero el primero de enero = the 1st of January (January 1st) First day of the month
  • May 5th el cinco de mayo February 3rd el tres de febrero December 25th el veinte y cinco de diciembre Examples
  • 1 2 3 Today is April 6th Try yourself Hoy es el seis de abril Hoy es abril de el seis Hoy es el siete de abril
  • 1 2 3 Today is April 6th Solution Hoy es el seis de abril Hoy es abril de el seis Hoy es el siete de abril
  • 1 2 3 Today is February 15th Try yourself Hoy es quince de febrero Hoy es el quince de febrero Hoy es el quince febrero
  • 1 2 3 Today is February 15th Solution Hoy es quince de febrero Hoy es el quince de febrero Hoy es el quince febrero
  • In Spanish, dates are written as DD/MM/YYYY and not MM/DD/YYYY Eg: March 5th 1982 = 05/03/1982 Culturally speaking
  • Revision : Names of months English Spanish January enero February febrero March marzo April abril May mayo June junio July julio August agosto September septiembre (or setiembre) October octubre November noviembre December diciembre not capitalized
  • Hoy es… el + number (except for 1st) + de + month Example : el ocho de enero = the 8th of January (January 8th) Revision : Telling dates
  • To tell the first day of each month we don’t use uno, we use primero el primero de enero = the 1st of January (January 1st) Revision : First day of the month
  • Culture Leaf
  • Las Fallas is one of the most famous festival in Valencia Las Fallas is undoubtedly one of the most unique and crazy festivals in Spain Spain is a country known for its unique and odd fiestas Valencia, a quiet city with a population of just over 1 million, swells to an estimated three million flame-loving revelers during Las Fallas celebrations Culture leaf : Las Fallas
  • Culture leaf : Las Fallas Las Fallas literally means ‘the fires’ in Valencian The focus of the fiesta is the creation and destruction of ninots (‘puppets’ or ‘dolls’), which are huge cardboard, wood, paper-machè and plaster statues A popular theme is poking fun at corrupt politicians and Spanish celebrities The children’s falla in calle Poeta Altet
  • Culture leaf : The ninots remain in place until March 19th, the day known as La Cremá (the burning) Starting in the early evening, young men with axes chop cleverly-hidden holes in the statues and stuff them with fireworks The crowds start to chant, the streetlights are turned off, and all of the ninots are set on fire at exactly 12am The same falla blazing
  • In the next lesson, we will learn how to ask and tell about age and birthdays What’s next?
