Spanish Lesson Ninety-Four: Fall and Fall Activities
Welcome back to Monday! I'm so excited to introduce to you the LAST themed lesson for our Spanish learning journey. For over two years, I've been introducing new themes and grammar lessons for your journey. Now, after this week, there will be no more of that. We will be reviewing up until the penultimate lesson. I will discuss some of the benefits of being bilingual (or multilingual) and then, at lesson one hundred, we will say goodbye.
Don't worry, though, in January 2015, we will begin a new Romance Language: Portuguese. Get excited for that. Once you've learned one, you can learn them all! So yeah, this week we're discussing Fall and Fall Activities. I hope you enjoy it! :)

Te Gusta El Otoño
This last lesson is themed and will be based off of Fall Activities in the Spanish language. Take a moment get acquainted with the vocabulary and meet me down in the lesson section. I will provide sample sentences to practice with. To the right of that section is a quick review on conjugating Reflexive Verbs. If you need help, go back to the lesson I mentioned to help you review.
Sometimes it takes some time to reacquaint yourself with certain aspects of the language. The real test is immersion. If you can do that, go for it!
Vispera de Todos Los Santos
Welcome to the last themed lesson in this series. Can you believe there have been over ninety lessons? I can't believe it myself!
Today's vocabulary consists of words that come in line with this week's lesson. There will no longer be a vocabulary section in these lessons save for the vocabulary review. It will be a master list of ALL the vocabulary that has been featured in previous lessons. So, take a break with this lesson and learn some final words before our review lessons.
Please keep in mind, there are always more vocabulary words to learn. Grab an English-Spanish dictionary to learn more words!
Conjugating Reflexive Verbs
- Determine Subject (Yo, Tú, Él/Ella/Usted, Nostoros, Ellos/Ellas/Ustedes)
- Remove the "-Se" from the end of the verb
- Change the "-Se" according to the subject with a reflexive proboun (Me, The, Se, Nos, Se)
- Replace reflexive pronoun in correct place while conjugating the remainder of the verb according to tense and verb ending. See Lesson Seventy-Six for more details.
Fall and Fall Activities
Compare and Contrast
El otoño es menor divertido que la primavera. Fall is less fun than spring.
Like Or Dislike
Me gustan los espantaparos. Hay que tenerlos. I like scarecrows. It is necessary to have them. Remember that Hay + Que indicates "It is necessary".
Use In Context
Él empezó rastrillando las hojas a las tres. Va a ser díficil. He began raking the leaves at three. It's going to be difficult. When an action takes place at a certain time, remember to use the Preterit over the Imperfect tense. To create a gerund, drop the ending of a verb and add -Ando for -Ar verbs and -Iendo for -Ir/-Er vebs.
Ask A Question
¿Qué traje ella va a llevar? What costume is she going to wear? The word "Traje" can also mean suit, garb, or outfit.
