Warm up 1.2 -Describe one of your family members using 3 adjectives we just learned in Spanish. -REMEMBER: o is used at the end of the adjective to describe a male and a is used at the end of the adjective to describe a female.
The verb ser = to be First lets look at our subject pronouns in English… I I am tall. you You are tall. he He is tall. she She is tall. it It is tall we We are tall. you (plural) You (plural) are tall. they They are tall.
Now lets look at our subject pronouns in Spanish… yo = I tú = you (informal) él = he **NOTA: el without an accent means the ella = she usted = you (formal) nosotros (as) = we vosotros (as) = you (plural) WE WILL NOT CONJUGATE FOR THIS FORM ellos = they (masculine or mixed gender) ellas = they (feminine) ustedes = you (plural) (formal)
In this chapter we will only be working with the following subject pronouns… yo = I tú = you (informal) él = he ella = she
The verb ser = to be yo soy I am tú eres You (informal) are él/ella es He/she is Yo soy alto. I am tall. Tú eres alto. You (informal) are tall. Él es alto. He is tall. Ella es alta. She is tall.
The verb ser… To make a sentence negative, you simply put no in front of the verb. - Antonio es alto. Él no es bajo. *Antonio is tall. He is not short. - Yo soy gracioso. Yo no soy serio. *I am funny. I am not serious.
Now lets learn some question words… Who? = ¿Quién? What? = ¿Qué? How? = ¿Cómo? Where? = ¿Dónde? From where? = ¿De dónde? Of what nationality? = ¿De qué nacionalidad? No? / Right? = ¿No?
Lets combine the verb ser with a question word… 1. ¿de dónde eres tú? (From where are you? Where are you from?) **Since the question is in the you form what would we respond with? - Yo soy de __________. (I am from _________). 2. ¿de dónde es ella? (From where is she? Where is she from?) - Ella es de _________. (She is from ________).
