【Spanish Lesson #2】More Examples

 Spanish Lesson #2More Examples


Last time, I posted about Survival Expressions that I’ve learned during my first week attending an online class. In this post, I will write some examples from the first week's lessons.


            Quisiera comer algo à I’d like something to eat.

            ¿Cuánto es? à How much is it?

            ¿Puede ayudarme, por favor? à Can you help me please?

            Me he perdido à I’m lost.



The alphabets: 

During the online lessons, we only listen to how to read the letters of the alphabet. I had to repeat the voice-over because I cannot understand how it was read and had to use other resources to know how the letters are pronounced properly. There are also questions after the alphabet lessons and we need to listen to the person reading it and write the correct letters. Anyway, I will write here how each letter is pronounced.

During the listening of letters, I thought G is read as ‘The’. I heard there is TH is reading G but when I used other resources, G is read ‘ge’. H in Spanish is read silently. That’s why H is read as ‘ache’ but spelled as ‘Hache’. As in the previous lessons, B and V have the same pronunciation. Both are read as ‘B’. That’s why, ‘uve’ is pronounce as ‘ube’. This is only how I observe during my online class and I am still a beginner, so I may be wrong in how the letters are read. Please correct me. Gracias.


Other vocabularies:

 

Spanish

English

Azul

Blue

Quimica

Joyas

Agua

Hijas

So that’s it for my first week of learning the Spanish language. I already finish my seven weeks lesson, but I still need to review everything because it is quite hard as most of the words are written in Spanish.

 

I will update as soon as possible after I review my lessons.

 

See you soon!

How to say your age in Japanese?

  How to say your age in Japanese?  The counter for age in Japanese is さい (sai).    In the previous blog, I’ve already discussed how to count in Japanese, so it is easy to tell your age in Japanese. So, if someone asks your age, you can say the number and put さい after it.    Example:                 60 years old – ろくじゅっさい (rokujussai)                33 years old – さんじゅうさん さい (sanjuusan sai)                20 years old – はたち (hatachi)           15 years old – じゅうごさい (juugo sai)                  8 years old – はっさい                  1-year-old – いっさい (issai)     For 1, 8 and 20 years old, the Japanese age is read differently from the other numbers. Instead of いちさい for 1 year old, it is いっさい while for 8 years old, it is はっさい instead of はちさい . F or 20 years old, instead of saying にじゅうさい , use はたち without putting さい .      なんさいですか ? (nansai desu ka?) – how old are you? おいくつですか ? (o ikutsu desu ka?) – how old are you? (Formal way of asking someone’s age)   とし (toshi) – Japanese word

Ten-Ten (“) and Maru (˚) (Japanese Character)

  The small dashes (“) is called Ten-Ten. While the small circle is called Maru ( ˚ ). Not all Hiragana and Katakana characters have Ten-Ten or Maru. There are only 20 characters that have changes in pronunciation when Ten-Ten and Maru are added. For Ten-ten:                              K”      à      G                        S”       à      Z                        T”      à      D                        H”      à      B For Maru:                             H ˚      à      B Don’t get confused with the change of pronunciation with H. Just remember that if H has Ten-Ten, it will be read as B while if H has Maru, the pronunciation is B.                                    Hiragana and Katakana Characters with Ten-Ten and Maru が ( ガ ) ga ぎ ( ギ ) gi ぐ ( グ ) gu げ ( ゲ ) ge ご ( ゴ ) go ざ ( ザ ) za じ ( ジ ) ji ず ( ズ ) zu ぜ ( ゼ ) ze ぞ (

Japanese Pronouns

Japanese Pronouns   What is Pronoun? According to Thesaurus.com, Pronoun is a pronoun used to refer to a speaker or the people/things that a speaker is referring to. It replaces a noun in a sentence. There are seven types of pronouns namely: the personal pronoun, the demonstrative pronoun, the interrogative pronoun, the relative pronoun, the indefinite pronoun, the reflexive pronoun, and the intensive pronoun. But today, I will only talk about personal pronouns.   In Japan, pronouns can be omitted in a sentence if both speaker and the person the speaker is referring to know the context of the sentence. Also, pronouns give importance to hierarchy, like respect for elders, seniority, or social order. It denotes the characteristics of the speaker or the person talking to like age, gender, and their relationships.   Pronoun in Japanese is だ い め い し (代名詞) read as Da i me i shi .
