Spanish Lesson Thirty-Nine: This, That, These, and Those

Updated on September 22, 2013

Hey Everyone!

This is lesson Thirty-Nine! That means next week we'll have a new Project Lesson and Quiz pertaining to lessons Thirty-One thru Thirty-Nine. I'm so excited about the progress we've made thus far and all the lessons that are upcoming! I will be revealing your project as well as your next quiz. Thanks so much thus far for your page views and dedicated readership. Anyway, welcome to this week's lesson. I thought I'd finally crank out a lesson on This, That, These, and Those. It sounds like it'd be simple, but still I get a little confused when specifying things. Anyway, there will be a chart and explanation of what's going on with everything.

I'm really excited about this lesson and more to come. I'm always looking for more ways to incorporate some hands on learning for everyone. One day I might make some videos? Who knows? My imagination is broadening and hopefully these lessons will be more fun, more informative, and more interactive. Just sit tight for those improvements.Now, let's continue.


Today's Goals: To be able to describe items as This, That, These, or Those. To incorporate such language into Spanish knowledge.

Today's Vocabulary

Hey hey! There isn't any vocabulary pertaining to today's theme. So we'll work on our weekly hodgepodge of words. Hopefully I'll find some more awesome adjectives and nouns for you all. By lesson Forty-One, I'll expect to have an awesome book with lots of wonderful words. As far as verbs go, I already have a book for that. ;)

Today's Tips: Watch a TV show in Spanish without subtitles. See what you can catch. Then, keep watching the show. Are you starting to understand some of their words?

Warm-Up

Hey Everyone! Here's today's Warm-Up. We'll do another three question quiz for your review. These questions come from Lesson Eleven. So take another look at that lesson if you don't remember it. Good luck and I'll see you down at today's chart!!

This, That, That One Over There

 
Masculine Singular
Feminine Singular
This
Este
Esta
That
Ese
Esa
That One (Over There)
Aquel
Aquella

These, Those, Those Over There

 
Masculine Plural
Feminine Plural
These
Estos
Estas
Those
Esos
Esas
Those (Over There)
Aquellos

Using This, That, These, and Those

Hey everyone! So yeah... see what I'm saying? It's a bit complicated if you're new at it. I still haven't gotten it down packed yet. This, That, That One Over There, These, Those, Those Over There... there are six choices to choose from and don't forget you have to follow Gender of the word. So therefore, you have to pay attention to Gender and Number in this case. Let's see an example of each case.


Esta mesa está roto. This table is broken. Singular feminine noun.

Esa mesa está roto. That table is broken. Singular feminine noun.

Aquella mesa está roto. That table over there is broken. Singular feminine noun.


Note: When using a masculine noun, simply follow the chart and create your own sentences using the demonstrative adjectives.


Estas mesas están rotos. These tables are broken. Plural feminine noun. Remember that your adjectives need to also follow number in the case as well as any verbs that exist in the sentence.

Esas mesas están rotos. Those tables are broken. Plural feminine noun.

Aquellas mesas están rotos. Those tables over there are broken. Plural feminine noun.


Again. Follow your chart to interchange with masculine nouns. If you need additional help, check out the links below for more information. Also remember that these demonstrative adjectives go directly before the noun(s) it represents. Any verbs and following adjectives much match the number (either singular or plural) than the noun(s) mentioned in the sentence. Good luck with your practice. Try out some more sentences with these words.


El Apartamento--->Sucio (This apartment is dirty)

La Lampára---->Rota (That lamp over there is broken)

La Gente----> Alto (Those people are tall)

Los Ojos---->Hermoso (These eyes are beautiful)

      No problem! I hope you enjoy the earlier lessons. They aren't as well organized as the later ones, but at least you'll get to see some progression! Let me know what you think of them.
