Spanish Lesson Forty: Writing A To-Do List

Updated on September 22, 2013

Happy Sunday Readers!

I bet you've all been waiting for the next project! I figured this was a great way to get everyone involved and doing something that would perhaps make Spanish livelier. It'll definitely make Spanish easy to incorporate into your lives and your vocabulary. I must say, I'm excited about the progress we've made over these forty lessons. We've come a long way. No we'll keep moving forward. Don't forget we'll do this every ten lessons, so keep a lookout for them. Once you've complete the project, shoot me an email and tell me how you did. You can find my email on my profile.

Today's Vocabulary: To reiterate past knowledge and be able to place emphasis on delegating tasks in Spanish. To be able to create a comprehensive list of chores your family and/or roommates.

Today's Vocabulary

Vocabulary is the essence of the Spanish language. Without words like adjectives, verbs, and nouns, it will be very difficult to increase your level of fluency. So, basically, you'll have a hodgepodge today just like every week. Some of these words I've seen before and a lot of them I haven't seen. I, like you, am still learning and still growing. My fluency may or might be greater than your own. Though through my experiences, I can say I've retained a great deal and can easily explain these concepts. That's why you're here right?

Today's Tips: Review previous lessons when you're stumped. There may be some things you may have missed. Practice makes perfect.

To Feign/To Prentend: Fingir

Adjectives*

Hungry: Hambre

Thirsty: Sed

Sleepy: Sueño

Confident: Confianza

Careful: Cuidado


*Note: Each adjective must be used in correlation with the verb "tener" to have its meaning ring true. For the subject, you must change the verb and add the adjective above. These are also known as idiomatic Expressions. Look here.

Tengo sed. I have thirst OR I am thirsty. Tener much be conjugated to reflect the subject in order for the meaning to pertain to the proper subject. Tener means "to have" and the adjective is what they "have".

Warm-Up

There is normally a quiz following the vocabulary, but since the quiz is coming after this hub, there's no need to add a quiz here. In fact, you'll have more quizzes in the lessons starting back with lesson forty-one. So today, take a load off and let's start out project!

Oh! If you're curious what lesson forty-one will be about, just think about the Seven Simple Tenses. There are only three more. Which ones have we not learned?

Writing A To-Do List (Requirements)

Hey Everyone! Today's project is Writing A To-Do List. This lesson is pretty simply and involves creating a chart. Pretend that you're creating a chore list or to-do list for each person in your household. Just create chart with the days of the week as headers, the person's name for each row and then in the spaces fill in the chore or task. This is a great test of your knowledge. :)

  • Create a title. This can be anything you think it should be.
  • Create the chart. You should have seven columns and a row per household member
  • Create tasks. Put in each box a task that must be completed by that person on that day. Be as specific as possible.
  • If there is a task, be sure to use the proper verb and follow correct grammar rules.
  • Let's see your chart!!

Homework

This week is over! :) I hope you all enjoyed this lesson and if you don't understand the words I used in my chart, send me a message and ask me. You can also use Google Translate to help you with some things to. I highly recommend it!! Last week's Spanish homework is below. Since you had a project, I won't give you any more verbs to conjugate until next Sunday. So get ready to get back on the wagon next week!

Oh! Next week we'll learn a new tense. Can you guess which one? Did I already tell you? Well, either way you'll know when Sunday comes. I think it's the easiest tense in Spanish. There's not much to it, I promise. Have a nice Sunday!

¡Hasta Luego!
