Review Post: 5/1, 5/8

This week we have the home as one of our themes.
On Monday in our Business Spanish we did outside home repairs and on Monday (coming up) stay tuned…

 

We’ve had the question, ¿Cómo se dice? – How do you say? and talked about how this is a great phrase to be proactive building vocabulary that you need.
¿Cómo se dice I have a question en español? – Se dice Tengo una pregunta.
¿Cóme se dice zanahoria en inglés? – Se dice carrot.

 

Now let’s learn ¿Qué es esto?

With ¿Cómo se dice?, you don’t need to have the object in front of you.
With ¿Qué es esto?, you have the object in front of you. This is great to use when shopping in an open air market.

Today we’ll apply it around the house:
el hogar – home
