Spanish Lesson Fifty-Six: Discussing Science
Welcome back to Spanish 101! Lol... I know... you're probably trying to figure out where I get the ideas from my lessons. Well, I just come up with them as best as I can. I think it's fun to learn some random things from time to time. Come lesson sixty, I will begin discussing grammar in a greater detail. I think you'll be excited to learn the Seven Compound Tenses in Spanish. They're pretty similar to ours, so it would be too difficult. Also, this will be my LAST lesson until the week of September 2, 2013. I will be focusing on cultivating my latest novel. So be patient. So come back on September 2nd, we'll pick back up with more lessons.
Thanks for reading!

Discussing Science in Spanish
Cooler than math, science is taught in every school possible. It's a broad topic that spans over several distinctions from astronomy, chemistry, physics, biology, earth sciences, and others. So this lesson is just a broad look at discussing these topics in some sort of fashion. I won't be including complex things like how to describe isotopes or all the parts of a eukaryotic cell. I will, however, give a broad definition to some of these words and see if you can incorporate them into your actual Spanish class.
Below there are some words for you to learn. They are broad, as I said before, but they should help you get an idea of how to discuss your favorite subject. Check out this lesson and I hope you all enjoy it! :)
Thanks for checking in to this week's lesson. Today's vocabulary will include scientific terms of a vast variety. I would introduce to many words considering the vastness of the topic we're discussing, but take a look at the chart to your right and you may learn some of the new terms introduced. Thanks for reading and I hope you've enjoyed today's lesson so far.
Also, consider looking online for specific words not found on this list. There are translating tools all over the internet to help you. Never forget about those resources. Finally, consider learning more school and class vocabulary so that you can discuss science in a classroom setting. It'll be fun! Give it a shot!
Cellular Respiration: La Respiración Celular
Photosynthesis: La Fotosíntesis
Process: El Procesos
Catalyst: El Catilazador
Osmosis: El Ósmosis
Oxidation: La Oxidación
Describing Science in Spanish
Hey Readers! So I hope you've enjoyed the vocabulary. Now you know a bit more about discussing science in the Spanish language. You can say "The cell is eukaryotic" now. Isn't than an accomplishment? Of course there are SO many words that can be discussed in this particular topic and I choose not to do this in order to maintain the length of the lesson. So below, let's look at some sample sentences! Don't forget to:
Compare and Contrast:
La Química es mas deficíl que la física. Chemistry is harder than physics.
Like Or Dislike:
No me gusta la biología. I don't like Biology.
Use In Context:
Esta Célula es eucariota. This cell is eukaryotic.
Ask A Question:
¿Qué es la volecedad? What is the velocity?
Answer A Question:
Manuel: ¿Dónde va Carlos? Where are you going Carlos?
Carlos: Voy a la clase de química. I'm going to chemistry class.
Remember: Find new ways to use this vocabulary as you can. There are no limits. Over time, you might be able to discuss a great deal of science with a native speaker! Thanks for checking out this week's lesson!
Oh! On September 2, 2013, we'll go over history! Come back for that one!
