Unit 1 Personal identification
Vocabulario I will now pass out your vocabulary for this section of the unit. We will be studying description words and reviewing the verb ser. There are a lot of words in this unit- please be sure to study every night! Please take a few minutes to go over your words and jot down any notes.
Lección 2: Ser & Descriptions We can now use ser and our new vocabulary to describe ourselves to others. We use ser to describe our physical features and our personality traits. Below is a review of the ser chart which we already learned. SER= To be Yo soy- I amNosotros somos- we are Tú eres- you areVosotros sois- you are Él es- he isEllos son- they are Ella es- she isEllas son- they are Usted es- you areUstedes son- they are
Lección 2: Ser & Descriptions Now, we can put ser and our vocabulary together to form a complete sentence which describes ourselves or other people. To ask somebody what they are like we say: “¿Cómo eres tú?”( informal) or “¿Cómo es usted?” (formal)
Lección 2: Ser & Descriptions The formula to answer the previous question would be: Subject pronoun + ser + description word(s) Ex: Yo soy baja y simpatica. *remember to always answer the question first in a yes/no question!
Lección 2: Ser & Descriptions Reminder- girls: you must change all of your description words which end in the letter “o” to the letter “a” to make them feminine. We must also add an “s” to the description words if we are describing more than 1 person! Any description word ending in –e, -l or –r are neutral. You do not have to change the gender of these words. Ex: Ella es popular Antonito es inteligente.
Lección 2: Ser & Descriptions Más ejemplos : EXS: Yo soy baja y comica- I am short and funny. Él es antipatico y inteligente- he is mean and smart. Nosotros somos amigos- We are friends. Tú eres tonta y estudiosa- you are silly and studious. Ellos son altos, feos y gordos.
Lección 2: Ser & Descriptions To make a negative statement about yourself, all you have to do is place the word “no” before the verb ser in the sentence. For example, if you want to say “I am not tall” you would say: Yo no soy alta. You may also see sentences where the subject pronoun is dropped. This is okay to do once you feel more comfortable with using the verb. Ex: Soy alto- I am tall (the yo is dropped)
