Easy Spanish, Lesson 25, “Quien me ayudara’?” (Who will help me?)

Buenos Tardes.  Como esta usted? I didn’t send out a Spanish blog yesterday because I was really busy. My Korean son in law who likes the Spanish blogs said to me not to worry because he was tired and needed a day off anyway, and if you are studying Spanish with my blog, you may have needed a break too.  My Korean son in law likes me using the children’s stories because he doesn’t know the children’s stories we tell in English and finds them interesting just as many of my readers find the Korean traditional stories I added to my blog interesting.  Have you read the one about the tiger chasing a boy and girl who became the sun and moon? In Korea, they often have God in their old stories, and this boy and girl prayed to God, and God answered them by making them the sun and the moon so the tiger couldn’t get them.  Or, perhaps you read about the one where God separated his daughter from a man who belonged to the earth because his daughter had neglected her work to spend all her time with the man, and the birds made a bridge so the two could see one another.   The Koreans have interesting stories too, and you can find many of them on my blog.  I have heard about another book I need to find to share more Korean stories with you. However, for now, I am sharing stories English speakers tell in Spanish.  My Korean son in law has never heard of “The Little Red Hen,” so today, I will tell that story.  Let’s get started.  Empiezamos nos!

By the way, I figured out I made a mistake on the last lesson. I called the ginger bread man “el hombre de galleta bermeja,” but a better word would have been “el hombre de galleta de jengibre.” “Bermeja” means “ginger,” but not for gingerbread.

Explicaciones:

  1.  Remember that whenever a noun is feminine, feminine adjectives must be used with that noun, and if the noun is masculine, masculine adjective must be used with that noun.  Many adjectives can be changed back and forth between feminine and masculine.  Rojo (masculine), roja (feminine)= red.  pequeno (masculine) pequena (feminine)= small or little.  I used the feminine form of these adjectives because “gallina” (hen) is a feminine noun.  Most of the time, the adjective is put after the noun in Spanish, but there are times it is acceptable to put it before, and since I had two adjectives, I put one before the noun and one after the noun.
  2. “al perro” = “a el perro”, and we condense the “a and el” to make “al.”
  3. “a mi mismo” = by myself. “mismo” away from this means “same,” and “mi” means “my,” and “a” means “to or at.” “a su mismo” = by himself. by herself. “a ti mismo”= by yourself.  “a nos mismo” = by ourselves. “a los mismo” = by themselves.
  4. “Ppr supuesto” = of course
  5. “ayudame”= help me.  “ayudarame” = you will help me, or will you help me. “te ayudare’= I will help you. “Lo ayudo’= he or she helped him. “Lo comieron”= They at it.  “Lo hizo'”= he or she did it.  “Lo” can be “him or it.”  “La ayudare’= I will help her. “la” = the direct object her or it.
  6. “trabajo”=work, “trabajar”= to work, “nada” = nothing or anything.  “para nada” = not at all.
