Named for the town’s patron saint, San Fermin, who is commemorated on July the 7 th each year, it includes daily bull fights but prior to that, they release the bulls and run along side them in the streets.
El tiempo R R R Remember, “el tiempo” can refer to time, but it depends on the context of the sentence. Today we are talking about it in reference to the weather. ¿ ¿ ¿ ¿Qué tiempo hace? = What is the weather? H H H Hace calor. = It is hot. H H H Hace frío. = It is cold. H H H Hace sol. = It is sunny. H H H Hace viento. = It is windy. T T T The verb “hacer” usually means “to make” or “to do” but it is an idiomatic phrase here and means basically, “it is.”
¿Qué tiempo hace? = What is the weather? The previous examples used the idiomatic verb, “ hace ” but there are two kinds of weather that are verbs on their own: Llueve = Rain Nieva = Snow So instead of saying, “hace nieva” you just say “nieva” or “llueve”
Las estaciones Las estaciones / The seasons: la primavera = Spring el verano = Summer el otoño = Autumn/Fall el invierno = Winter Example: ¿En qué estación hace frío? In what season is it cold? Answer: En el invierno.
