Friday 27th March - Spanish lesson

Hola a todos!  (Hello everyone!)  It's Miss Leyland here!   And what a sunny day it looks again! 

Do you remember that in Spanish to say it's sunny we say hace sol.   Have a look out of the window.  Is it sunny where you are?  If it is, then say hace sol.

We've certainly been very lucky with the weather this week, haven't we?

Today we are going to be learning how to say which animals you like

When we talk about what type of animals we like, we use the word in the plural (more than one).  That is because we are talking about animals in general, and not one particular lion, tiger etc.

To start with look at the animals below.   They are all written in the plural (more than one).  Write a list of the animals you like in order of preference with your favourite animal being first, and your least favourite animal being last.

Now we are going to learn how to say which animals you like.   

Me gustan los monos =  I like monkeys

No me gustan los monos = I don't like monkeys

Which animals do you like?  Write a sentence for each animal, starting with either Me gustan (I like)  or No me gustan (I don't like)  followed by the animal in Spanish (in the plural, as in the box above)

This is what I would write:

Me gustan los tigres.

Me gustan los loros.

Me gustan las jirafas.

Me gustan los elefantes.

Me gustan los osos.

Me gustan los monos.

No me gustan las serpientes.

No me gustan los leones.

But what about you?  Write your answers in a book or on a piece of paper.  Do we have the same sentences?  We all have our own opinions, so whatever you write is fine, as long as you have started each sentence with either Me gustan or No me gustan, then written an animal in Spanish.

Anyway, have a lovely weekend, and hope you will all have a look at next week's Spanish lessons on this website.

¡Hasta pronto!        (See you soon)
