¡Hola a todos!
Quiero repasar algunas cosas primero.
Let’s review a few of the homework submissions. We’ve received thousands of them, and we’ve identified several common errors that almost everyone can learn from. I´ve made three videos to go through these errors, categorized as word usage, pronunciation, and gender/number of nouns.
Unintroduced nouns usually use hay (just like there is/are in English)
Hay doesn’t need definite articles (el/la/los/las) – just like there is/are in English
Some prepositions need de, and some don’t:
|Need de||Don’t need de|
|Al lado de
Debajo de (coloquial: abajo de)
En medio de
The gu and qu + e/i (soft vowel sounds) sound like English g and k, they don’t get the u sound
Here is each combination:
gue -> gay
gui -> gea (as in gear)
que -> kay
qui -> ki
The ll sound makes a y sound:
Ella -> eya
Other Pronunciation: use Instreamia hover sounds to work on words you aren’t sure about!
Gender of Nouns:
Use Instreamia to look up gender of nouns (la pared, las flores)
Always use the right article and the matching adjective.
