NOTE TAKING STRATEGIES 1. Have 2 separate sheets of notes. 2. Write the general information on one page. 3. Any verb infinitive (or conjugated form) you see write on a second page. 4. Highlight any noun with which you are not familiar and put them on flashcards. Put the unfamiliar word in English on one side and the Spanish equivalent on the other.
TO ASK WHAT PEOPLE DO FOR A LIVING You can follow along in the textbook on page 47 ¿A qué se dedica el señor Machado? What does Mr. Machado do? (Literally – To what is he dedicated?) Es programador. Sabe diseñar páginas Web mejor que nadie. He is a programmer. He knows how to design Web pages better than anyone.
WAIT A MINUTE… Why is nadie used at the end of a sentence without the use of a negative before the verb? Mejor que nadie is actually a negative phrase. It does not require an initial negative such as this example: No hay nadie que pueda enseñar mejor que el Jefe. There isn’t anyone that can teach better than Jefe.
TO ASK WHAT PEOPLE DO FOR A LIVING You can follow along in the textbook on page 47 ¿Qué clase de trabajo realiza Marisa? What kind of work does Marisa do? (Literally – What class of job does she perform?) The literal translation makes no sense in English. Es banquera internacional. Sabe hablar cuatro idiomas y dar consejos. She is an international banker. She knows how to speak 4 languages and to give advice.
TO INTRODUCE PEOPLE You can follow along in the textbook on page 47 Éste es mi amigo Juan. (Spanish 1) This is my friend Juan. Ésta es mi amiga Laura. (Spanish 1) This is my friend Laura. Responses: Mucho gusto – please to meet you. Encantado / a – Delighted to meet you. This is nothing new.
A LITTLE SPANISH FLARE. Te presento a mi amiga Carla. I present to you my friend Carla. This is my friend Carla. Presentar must be followed by “a”. The te is used only to introduce someone to the person you know well. Use le if the person is not familiar or is respected. Señor Kress, le presento a mi amigo Roberto. Mr. Kress, this is my friend Roberto. Mr. Kress, I present to you my friend Roberto. Le represents Mr. Kress.
ONE MORE WAY TO INTRODUCE Celia, quiero presentarte a mis vecinos, los García. Celia, I want to introduce you to my neighbors, the Garcías. The te can be change to le as in the previous example. It must ALWAYS stay attached to presentar. Señora Martinez, quiero presentarle a mis estudiantes. Mrs. Martinez, I want to introduce you to my students. Unlike the commands, no accent is required unless you add 2 object pronouns to the infinitive. We’ll talk about those later.
RESPONSES Same as Spanish 1 Mucho gusto Encantado (guys only) Encantada (ladies only)
TO SAY THAT YOU ARE ALSO PLEASED TO MEET SOMEONE El gusto es mío. – Sentence about Carla. The pleasure is mine. Encantada de conocerlos – Sentence about los Garcías. Delighted to meet all of you. Encantada can be made masculine and you could use “te” or “lo/la” for you instead of los (if there is only 1 person to whom you are being introduced). Igualmente – Likewise / Same here.
Dedicarse – to dedicate oneself to Ser – to be (profession) Saber – to know how to Diseñar – to design Realizar – to perform / do Hablar – to speak / talk Dar consejos – to give advice Presentar a – to present someone to Querer – to want Conocer – to meet (someone) VERBS THAT WE SAW…DID YOU GET THEM ALL?
