So today, Ana came by to spend more time with us on our Spanish. We’ve been here a week already and I’m really beginning to believe that I can pick this language up — and I’m 42 years old.
The kids seem to enjoy it and they just seem to pick it up much faster. Worse case-scenario is that I can tote one of them around Medellin to speak and translate Spanish on my behalf.
Here’s a small clip from one of our Spanish lessons with Ana in Medellin!
Today, we played a game that’s similar to bingo … It was really fun and the kids really enjoyed it. We also played a modified version of Pictionary too.
Here are a few of the Spanish words we learned today:
- que son esos (WHAT ARE THOSE)
- vamos (let’s go)
- jugo (juice)
- por favor (please)
- pequeño (small)
- mediano (medium)
- big (grande)
- gaseosa (soda) I recognized this one at the supermarket
- ayuda (help)
- me das (can I have)
- no más (no more)
- gracias (thanks)
- de nada (you’re welcome)
- con gusto (you’re welcome)
- hola (hello)
- buenos dias (good morning)
- buenas tardes (good afternoon)
- buenas noches (good night)
Our housekeeper Gloria made an awesome bowl of soup today … and she taught me how to say: ‘Me gusta la sopa’.
Translation: I like the soup!
If you have a few Spanish words to teach me, feel free to share below … I need all of the help I can get while here in Medellin Colombia.
