Spanish Lesson Thirty-Eight: Cars and Car Parts

Updated on September 22, 2013

Hey Everyone! I want to first apologize for last week's lesson. As I reviewed this week I found several errors. The vocabulary list has been completed, the charts at the bottom updated as well as the homework. Please excuse those mistakes. To view them click here. Now that I've gotten that out of the way, Bienvenido! It's time to start learning some more Spanish. This week we're going to focus on the Car and Car Parts. I thought that'd be unique enough to grab some attention.

Now last week we worked on Giving and Receiving Directions. I hope that was useful to you all. These themes are meant to expand your vocabulary and ability. I'm hoping to figure a way to incorporate more ways to learn in these lessons. When I do, I will definitely initiate those new functions. As of now, we'll continue along as normal. Oh. Also don't forget that come lesson Forty there will be a new Quiz and Project Lesson. Lesson Forty-One will be another grammar lesson on how to use The Future Tense. Stay tuned!

Today's Goals: To learn and understand new vocabulary pertaining to Cars and Car Parts. To Utilize said vocabulary and be able to incorporate it into everyday conversation.

Today's Vocabulary

Welcome everyone! El vocabulario de hoy will be your usual hodgepodge of adjectives, verbs, and nouns. Also there will be an additional chart of words pertinent to today's theme. I hope these words are helping you all learn new vocabulary. Always look up sites that offer flashcards to learn new words. That's probably the easiest way to retain new words. You can also make your own!

Today's Tips: Watch or read a car review in Spanish. See if you can understand any of the terms or parts of the car.

When Discussing Cars and Car Parts...

So readers. I hope this vocabulary proves useful to you. The list to your right is just the tip of the iceberg when discussing things about your car or its parts. The following is a list of phrases that one can use in the event that your car has an issue. Below are common phrases that you and I use everyday.

Homework

Espero que nadie tuviera problemas con la tarea. I hope no one had problems with the homework. With every new assignment, I think conjugating verbs will just become easier and easier.

Your answers are below this section. Here are some more verbs to practice the Present Indicative, Preterit, and Imperfect Indicative. I used the Imperfect Subjunctive earlier. Don't worry. That won't come until later. Here are this week's verbs
