But if you want to stay in a hotel, you should look in the disadvantages (desventajas). You want to find THREE quotes that you understand and can use with your own words or comments. 

En la clase hoy...
1. Comparative Sentences (40 points graded on grammatical correctness - Classroom)
  • The ING is a thing in English a lot, in Spanish it's not. They use the infinitive to refer to the action of "hiking" or "swimming"
  • Rock climbing and mountain climbing use the same word.
  • Hiking would be either a Spanish 3 word (dar una caminata) or a Spanish 4 word (hacer una excursión).
  • Expensive is car@
  • Map is el mapa
  • I use the @ sign on vocab lists to represent the o/a that happens on adjectives because the @ sign has both an o and an a. So espantos@ means that it can be espantoso, espantosa, espantosos, espantosas.
         When you are done, TURN IN & then practice with the vocab using the vocab quizlet

2. Hablamos del vocab quiz

  • 40 points
