Easy Spanish, Lesson 4, Uno, Dos, Tres..Vamanos!

Hola!  Como esta usted?  Estoy muy bien.  Did you do the last lesson that taught “ser” and “estar”?  If you did, you should understand the Spanish I began this blog with.  My Korean son in law has been working hard on “ser” and “estar,” and he is getting it.  He went out to work today looking at his phone and reading the lesson.  Now that you can identify things and tell where they are. lets talk about time a little more.  impiezamos nos! (Let’s begin)

Explication:

  1.  I actually don’t think these need much explanation.  You need to memorize the numbers, but if you don’t get them all right away, don’t worry. I will talk about money in the next blog, so you will have a chance to exercise your knowledge of numbers again.  Just memorize “uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, diez” to begin with.  After that, it is easier to memorize the rest of them.  After you get to 15 (quince), from 16 (dieciseis) to 19 (diescinueve) are pretty easy to say because you just say for 16, ten and six (diez y seis), for 17, you just say “ten and seven” (diez y siete), up until 20 (veinte).  After 20 (veinte), it is easy because you just say ” 20 and 1″ (veinte y uno), “20 and 2” (veinte y dos), etc.  Then you get to 30 (treinta), and you do the same thing:  “30 and 1” (treinta y uno), “30 and 2” (treinta y dos), etc.  Each one of the numbers 20 (veinte), 30 (treinta), 40 (cuarenta), 50 (cincuenta), 60 (sestena), 70 (setenta) 80 (ochenta), and 90 (noventa) are all treated the same by putting “y” (and), and then the next number after that.
  2. For telling time, “hora” is “hour.”  “minuto” is minute, and “minutos” is minutes.  You have to use “ser” to tell time, and to say what time it is, the conjugated verb is “es. ” You can simply say “Es dos”= It is two o’clock.  Or you can say “Es la dos” meaning “It is at two o’clock.)  If you want to say the minutes come after the hour, just put “y” (and), and then put the number of minutes after the hour.  If you want to say it is “X” number of minutes before the hour, just say the hour, then say “menos” and then the number of minutes before the hour.  “Menos” is like “minus,” so it should be pretty easy.
  3. breakfast=desayuno, lunch=almuerzo, supper or dinner (the evening meal) = cena.
  4. Since coffee shops are very popular here in Korea and Japan, I thought I should put the word for coffee shop in, but I don’t know if they are just as popular in other parts of the world or not.  The word for “coffee shop” = cafeteria.
  5. I have conjugated “comer” in an earlier blog, but I am not sure I conjugated “ir” (to go) for you. (present tense) I go = Yo voy, voy.  You go = tu vas, vas.  He goes = el va, va. She goes = ella va, va.  You go (formal)= usted va.  We go = nosotros vamos, vamos.  They go (masculine= ellos van. They go (feminine) = ellas van.  You guys go (formal) = ustedes van.  If you want to say “Let’s go,” it is “vamanos.”
