This week we learned:
 How to use commands with double object pronouns

Chapter 7; Grammatical Section 1:

Double Object Pronouns: Verbs in sentences that can have both a direct and indirect object pronoun.

Direct Object Pronouns:
me nos
te los/las
lo/la

Indirect Object Pronouns:
me nos
te les
se


*Indirect and direct object pronouns cannot be separated from one another, so must always be put next to each other in the sentence.
*Indirect object pronoun always comes before the direct object pronoun.
*Pronouns can be placed before the verb: ex. Te lo da mi madre. Or attached to an infinitive: ex. ¿Puedes traérmela?
*Change the indirect object pronoun le/les to se when used with lo/las/los/las. Ex. Se lo recomiendo.
*If the verb is reflective, it will act as an indirect object pronoun. Ex. Me las lavo.

Commands with double object pronouns

*Attach indirect object pronouns followed by direct object pronouns to affirmative commands, and place them before the verb in a negative command.

Ex. Elena, preparo la comida. Cometela.
Ex. La sopa de ajo está echada a perder. No te la recomiendo.

*All other rules for double object pronouns apply.

Adverbs

*Modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs. Usually tell how much, how often, how well, or when.
*Common ending in Spanish adverbs: -mente (added to the feminine form of an adjective).
Ex. Serio seriamente
desesperado  desesperadamente
Amable  amablemente general  generalmente
*Keep accent marks of adjectives.
Ex. Fácil fácilmente
rápido  rápidamente

Some basic adverbs without –mente
a tiempo entonces
despúes poco
nunca mucho
temprano siempre
a veces ya
bien muy
casi tarde

· An accent mark will be placed over the stressed syllable; where the stress was before the pronouns were attached.
· Ejemplo: Me gusta el suéter. Préstamelo. Necesitamos las tollar. ¿Puedes dárnoslas?

This week, we continued talking about double object pronouns. We learned how to use them with commands, and reviewed how to make commands.

To use double object pronouns with affirmative commands, attach them to the end of the command. Make sure that the indirect object pronoun is always first.

¿Cuándo puedo servir la ensalada?
Sírvesela antes.

The se refers to whom the salad will be served, and the la refers to the salad itself.

With negative commands, the pronouns must go before the command. The indirect object pronoun still goes before the direct object pronoun.

La sopa de fideos es muy salada. No te lo pidas.

The accent on these commands goes where the natural stress of the command without the pronouns would be.

La bistec a la parilla es muy sabrosa. Recomiéndatela.

We also learned about adverbs this week. Adverbs are words that modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs and tell how, how much, how often, how well, or when. Most Spanish adverbs end in –mente, like English adverbs end in –ly.

Some adverbs which do not end in –mente are:
A tiempo-on time
A veces-sometimes
Ayer-yesterday
Bien-well
Casi-almost
Demasiado-better
Después-after
Entonces-then, after
Luego-later, after
Mal-badly
Más-more, better
Major-better
Menos-less
Mucho-a lot, many
Muy-very
Nunca-never
Peor-poorly
Poco-a little, few
Siempre-always
Tarde-late
Temprano-early
Todavía (no)-still, still not, still haven’t
Ya-already

To make an adjective an adverb, take the feminine form of that adjective and add –mente to the end. The stress goes on the naturally stressed syllable of the adjective. Keep all accent marks where they are.

Típicamente desayunamos a las siete.
Mi perro come constantemente.
Recientemente comí la comida italiana.

This week we reviewed how to use commands with double object pronouns and how to correctly use adverbs.
• Indirect object pronouns followed by a direct object pronoun can be used in commands. If the command is affirmative, they can be attached at the end of the conjugated verb.

-For example: ¿Quieres el café ahora o con el postre? Ahora no, gracias, sírvemelo después.

• If reflexive pronouns and direct objects are used together, the reflexive pronoun goes before the direct object noun or pronoun.

-Example: Luis, ponte la camisa antes de sentarte a comer. ¡Ay mami, no quiero! ¡Hace mucho calor! No importa. Póntela.

• We reviewed how adverbs can tell how, how much, how well, and when. They can modify verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs. In Spanish, the ending “mente” is the same as the English ending “ly.” Most of the time, these endings point directly to adverbs. Some common adverbs ending in “mente” we studied are:
-solamente
-nerviosamente
-afortunadamente
-desesperadamente
-inmediatamente
-rápidamente
-típicamente
-generalmente
• Other adverbs we reviewed that did not end in “mente” include:
-a tiempo
-bien
-después
-luego
-mal
-mejor
-menos
-nucho
-muy
-nunca
-siempre
-tarde
-temprano
-ya
• Lastly, adjectives keep their original accent marks even after “mente” is added. Also, accent marks to on the adjective’s stressed syllable.

Commands with Double Object Pronouns

 When using double object pronouns with infinitive and affirmative commands, you’ll attach both of them to the end. (indirect ob. pronoun always before direct ob. pronoun)
 An accent mark is placed over the stressed syllable (where the stress was before the pronouns were placed on the end).
Ejemplos:

Affirimative:
 Me gusta la camiseta. Préstamela. (accent over stressed “e” in the verb “prestar”)
I like the shirt. Lend it to me.
Infinitive:
 Necesitamos los libros. ¿Puedes dárnoslos? (When using an infinitive command, the accent always goes over the verb ending, in this case “a” for the “ar” verb).
We need the books. Can you give them to us?

When using negative commands, the pronouns come before the verb. (still with the indirect object pronoun always first).
Ejemplos:

 Nacho quiere comer tu comida. ¡No se la des!
Nacho wants to eat your food. Don’t give it to him!
 No necesito los mariscos para la cena. No me los traigas.
I don’t need the shellfish for dinner. Don’t bring them to me.

When using a command with a reflexive pronoun and a direct object, the reflexive pronoun always goes before the direct object pronoun or noun.
Ejemplos:

Miguel, ponte los platos en la mesa. (verb with reflexive pronoun)
-No quiero.
Ay…Póntelos. (verb with reflexive pronoun and direct object pronoun).

Miguel, put the plates on the table.
-I don’t want to.
Ugh…Put them there.

Adverbs:
-Modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs.
-Tells: how, how much, how often, how well, or when.

To make an adverb in Spanish, add “-mente” to the feminine form of an adjective. (mente= ly)
Ejemplo: Frecuente (f. adjective) changes to frecuentemente (adverb)

Nerviosamente-nervously
Afortunadamente-luckily
Constantemente-constantly
Desesperadamente-frantically
Desgraciadamente-unfortunately
Furiosamente-furiously
Generalmente-generally
Usualmente-usually
Inmediatamente-immediately
Lentamente-slowly
Recientemente-recently
Tranquilamente-calmly
Ruidosamente-loudly
Solamente-only
Amablemente-nicely

If an adjective has an accent mark before you make it into an adverb, you keep it even after you add “-mente”. The accent is on the adjective’s stressed syllable, and the stress is on the “-men”.

Fácilmente-easily
Tíipicamente-typically
Rápidamente-rapidly


Some other common adverbs:

A tiempo-on time
A veces-sometiems
Ayer-yesterday
Bien-well
Casi-almost
Demasiado-too much
Después-after
Entonces-then
Igualmente-equally
Luego-later
Mal-bad
Más-more
Mejor-better/best
Menos-less
Mucho-many
Muy-very
Nunca-never
Peor-worse than (used with que)
Poco-little
Siempre-alwasy
Tarde-late
Temprano-early
Todavía (no)-still
Ya-already

Class Notes: September 21 – September 25, 2009

· Commands with double object pronouns
o You know to attach an object pronoun or reflexive pronoun to the end of the verb in an affirmative command and to place it just before the verb in a negative command.
§ Ex: Óscar, péinate por favor.
§ Si no quieres postre, no lo sirvas.
o You can use an indirect object pronoun followed by a direct object pronoun in commands. They follow the same placement rules.
§ Ex: ¿Quieres sopa?
§ Sí, pídemela por favor.
o When a reflexive pronoun is used together with a direct object, the reflexive pronoun goes before the direct object noun or pronoun.
§ Ex: Ana, lávate los manos antes de servir la comida.
§ Pero, ya me las lave.
§ Lávatelas otra vez.
o Examples
§ ¿Tengo que ofrecerles unas bebidas?
Si, ofrecéselas.
§ ¿Me llevo la lista de entremeses?
Si, llevatela.
§ ¿Debo traerlas la ensalada antes del plato principal?
No, no se la traigas.
§ ¿Les traigo los postres cuando todavía están comiendo el plato principal?
No, se los traigos.
§ ¿Les pido la propina?
No, no se la pidas.
· Adverbs
o Adverbs can modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs. They often tell how, how much, how well, or when.
§ Common adverbs on page 254 of text.
o Many adverbs that end in –ly in English end in –mente in Spanish. You add –mente to the feminine form of an adjective. If the adjective ends in –e or –l, just add –mente.
§ Ex: sola – solamente
Fácil – fácilmente
Nerviosa – nerviosamente
Amable – amablemente
o If an adjective has an accent mark, keep it even after adding –mente. The stress goes on the adjective’s stressed syllable and on –men-: fácilmente, típicamente.
§ More common adverbs on page 254 of text.
o Examples:
§ Siempre como una ensalada.
§ Nunca cocino la comida.
§ Típicamente bebo al agua.

This week in Spanish 3 we learned about using double object pronouns with commands. When you use these pronouns with infinitives or affirmative commands, you attach both pronouns to the end. An accent mark is required over the stressed syllable, the location is where the stress was before the pronouns were attached.
Me gusta el libro. Prestámelo.
When there is a negative command, the pronouns go before the verb, the indirect object first, then the direct object.
Mike quiere copiar tu tarea. ¡No se la des!
Sírvemelo después.
Also we learned about Spanish adverbs. Adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs. They often tell how, how much, how well, or when.
A tiempo – on time
A veces – sometimes
Ayer – yesterday
Bastante – really
Bien - well
Casi- almost
Demasíado – too much
Después – after
Entonces – so
Luego – later
Más – more
Mal – almost
Mejor – best
Menos – less tan
Mucho – alot
Muy – very
Nunca – never
Peor – poorly
Poco – a Little bit
Siempre – always
Tarde – late
Temprano – early
Todavía – still have not done yet
Ya – already done something
In Spanish you add an mente to the end of words that in English commonly end in ly. You must also add an accent mark to the adjective’s stressed syllable if it had one.
Afortunadamente – luckily
Constantemente – constantly
Desesperadamente – frantically
Desgraciadamente – unfortunately
Fácilmente - happily
Furiousamente – furiously
Generalmente – generally
Inmediatamente – immediately
Lentamente – slowly
Nerviousamente - nerviously
Rápidamente – quickly
Recientemente – recently
Típicamente – typically
Tranquilamente – calmly
Sé cocinar solamente uno plato.
Mi perro come constantemente.
Afortunadamente yo traigo mi comida.

This week in our Spanish 3 class we learned more gramática rules when dealing with double object pronouns with commands and adverbs.
Here are the rules for dealing with commands with double object pronouns:
· When using object pronouns or reflexive pronouns in an affirmative command you will attach both to the end.
· When a reflexive pronoun is used with a direct object, the reflexive goes before the direct object pronoun or noun.
· Do not forget the accent mark, the stressed syllable when dealing with these pronoun phrases.
Here are some examples:
· Me gusta el libro romantíco.
Préstamelo.
· Ella quiere una agua mineral.
¿Puedes darsela?
Negative Commands:
· With negative commands the pronouns always come before with the indirect object first.
Some examples:
· Rita quiere copiar tus papel en San Juan.
¡No se lo des!
· Nosotros no queremos ver las fotas.
No nos las enseñas.
Adverbs
· Tell how much, how often, how well, or when.
· They modify verbs, adjectives, or other verbs.
Examples:
· A tiempo-on times
· A veces-sometimes
· Ayer-yesterday
· Bien-good
· Casi-every

· If an adjective does not have a feminine form than just attach –mente.
· When an adjective has an accent mark, keep it does not change.
Some common adverbs:

This week I learn our adverbs that end in ly. In Spanish instead of using ly we use mente. For example to say slowly in Spanish you would have to say lenta which means slow and add mente which toghther it will be lentamente, slowly. We also learned how to say commands like lávatelas which means clean them.

Matthew said...

Double Object Pronouns with Commands
Pronouns with affirmative commands, attach both of the pronouns to the end.
An accent mark is used with the commands and is placed where the stressed syllable was before the pronouns were added.
If the command is negative, place the pronouns before the command.
When using Reflexive pronouns and Direct Object Pronouns together all of the same rules apply.
Examples-
Tráigamela. Bring it to me.
No, no se la das. Do not give it to her.

Adverbs
Adverbs Modify-
Verbs
Adjetives
Other Adverbs
Tell-
How
How much
How often
How well
When
As opposed to making adverbs in english by adding -ly, in Spanish to make a word an adverb you must take the feminine for of an adjective and than add mente to the end.
Desesperada------Desesperadamente
Accent marks are used in the adverbs if there is an accent mark already present in the adjective form. If so than the accent mark remains on the same vowel as in the adjective.
Common Adverbs
Bastante- Really
Frecuentemente- Frequently
Fácilmente- Easily
Nerviosamente- Nervously
Afortunadamente-Luckily
Constantemente-Constantly
Desesperadamente-Frantically
Furiosamente- Furiously
Generalmente- Generally

This week in Spanish III we continued our discussion of Chapter 7.


We continued on with our discussion of commands with double object pronouns. These can be used with both informal and formal commands. The double object pronouns must be placed in a certain order, indirect then direct. We focused on informal commands.

To form an informal command, one must go to the tú form of the verb, and then drop the s.


EX: Comer-Come
EX: Escribir-Escribe

You can use these with double object pronouns

EX: Debes traer las llaves a su casa.
EX: Tráigaselas

EX: Necesitas llevarse los refrescos
EX: Llévaselos


We moved on to using adverbs in Spanish

A veces- sometimes
demasiado- too many
casi- almost
siempre- Always
poco- little
peor- worse
nunca- never
todavía- still
ya- already
luego- later
tarde- late
temprano- early
mal- bad
mucho- many
más- more
bien- well
A tiempo- on time

We also learned about other abverbs, those that end in mente.

Mente=ly


constantemente- constantly
difícilmente- difficulty
lentamente- slowly
fácilmente- easily
frecuentemente- often
generalmente- generally
típicamente- typically


EX: Los veranos son muy divertidos siempre para mí

Translated: Summers are always fun for me.

EX: Generalmente, mis amigos y yo miramos deportes todo el sábado.

Translated: Generally, my friends and I watch sports all Saturday.

This week we started with using double object pronouns with commands. We already knew how to use direct and indirect object pronouns. When using these with commands, they follow the same rules as object pronouns and reflexive pronouns. In a positive command, they are added to the end of the command, with the direct object coming first if both are used (for example: déjanoslo). When the object pronouns are added to the end of the command, the accent is placed above the vowel where stress is placed when saying the word out loud (for example: llévatelas). On the other hand, when using a negative command, the object pronouns are placed before the command, with direct object being first if both of them are used (for example: No te lo recomiendas).

The other subject covered this week in class was adverbs. By definition, adverbs are modifiers. They modify verbs, adjectives, and even other adverbs. They can tell when, how often, how well, how much, or just simply how. Words such as ayer (yesterday), después (after), mal (bad), muy (very), nunca (never), siempre (always), temprano (early) and many more. Also, words in English that end in –ly normally end in –mente in Spanish. When doing this, take the feminine form of the adjective and add -mente to the end. For example: afortunadamente (luckily), desgraciadamente (unfortunately), generalmente (generally), lentamente (slowly), tipicamente (typically), tranquilamente (calmly), and many more.

¡Buen provecho!

In this section of San Juan, Puerto Rico we learned so far how to order in a restaurant and talk about how food tastes. Also, we learned so far how to use double object pronouns, commands with double object pronouns, and adverbs.
The vocabulary is basically food terms in spanish and they are the following:
Terms
1. La Pera – pear
2. La lechuga – lettuce
3. El platano – banana
4. Un surtido de frutas frescas – fruit salad
5. La piña – pineapple
6. Los bocadillos – finger food
7. Las fresas – strawberries
8. Los mariscos – seafood
9. El aceite de oliva – olive oil
10. La ensalada mixta – mixed salad
11. El vinagre – vinegar
12. Aguado – watery, weak
13. Dejar la propina – leave a tip
14. Pagar la cuenta – to pay the bill
15. Rico(a)- Tasty delicious
16. Habiculelas – beans
17. Agua mineral – mineral water
18. Flan de vanilla – vanilla flan
19. Sopa de fideos – noodle soup
20. Caldo de pollo – chicken soup
21. Biste a la parilla – grilled steak
22. Café – cofee
23. Té - tea
To order in a restaurant there are many sayings. For example…
¿ Nos trae el menú por favor? ( Would you bring us the menu please?) And you would respond,
SÍ, inmediatamente se lo traigo. (Yes, I’ll bring it to you immedietley).
Double object pronouns
In a sentence you always have to use an direct object pronoun whenever there is an indirect object.
Example: La mesera nos recomendo ( a Eric y a mi) el plato del dÍa.
When using an indirect and direct object pronoun together, the indirect object pronoun is always first.
Example: ¿Le dejaron la propina al mesera?
When using two object pronouns together, the direct object pronoun will usuall be lo, la, los, and las.
Commands with double object pronouns
When using an object pronoun or reflexive pronoun you have to attach it to the end of the verb in an affirmative command. In a negative command you place the pronouns just before the verb.
When a reflexive pronoun with an indiret object, the reflexive pronoun goes before the drect object.
Adverbs
Adverbs can modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs.
Tell: how, how much, how often, how well, or when
Common adverbs
1. A tiempo
2. A veces
3. Ayer
4. Bien
5. Casi
6. Entonces
7. Igualmente
8. Luego
9. Mal
10. Mejor
11. Menos
12. muy
13. Nunca & many more!

A lot of adverbs end in –ly. In english they end in –mente. You add –mente to a feminie form of an adjective.
Examples: sola → solamente amable → Amablemente

This week in class:

Commands with double object pronouns
When using commands with pronouns you first make the command which is then followed by the double object pronoun. You must also add an accent mark to the command.
Ex: Debes llevarles la comida a tus padres.
Llévasela

But when making a command negative you place the double object pronoun before the command.
Ex: No debes comerte la fruta.
No te la comas.

Adverbs
The adverbs modify a verb or other adverbs. Adverbs tell when, how, where, or how often.

Bastantemente, which means really, is used to modify other adverbs.
Ex: El perro corre bastantemente rápidamente.

To make an adjective into an adverb, you would take the feminine form of the adjective and add –mente, which in English is –ly, to it, keeping any of the accent marks already in the word.
Ex: frecuente + mente = frecuentemente

Not all adverbs end in -mente including:
• A veces
• Siempre
• Peor
• Demasiado
• Mal
• Mucho
• Muy
• Nunca
• Entonces
• Luego
• Después

Rachael said...

This week we learned about commands with double object pronouns and adverbs. When you use commands the placements of the direct and indirect object pronouns are the same as they have been.
Examples:
• ¿Te dejo los platos aquí? Sí, déjamelos allí.
• Tengo calor. Quiero quitarme este saco. No te lo quites.
• ¿Quién me compró la television? Te la compramos nosotras.
Adverbs can modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs. Many of the Spanish adverbs end in mente instead of ly like in English.
Some adverbs are:

• a tiempo
• a veces
• bien
• entonces
• luego
• mejo
• mucho
• nunca

• ya
• afortunadamente
• constantemente
• furiosamente
• generalmente
• inmediatamente
• rápidamente
• típicamente


Examples:
• Generalmente cenamos en casa a las seis.
• Sé cocinar solamente dos o tres platos.
• Mi gato come constantemente.
• Recientemente comí comida mexicana.

jake bernat said...

This week, we began to learn how to properly use commands with double object pronouns.

For an affirmative command, you'd have to take the "tú" form of a verb, drop the "s", and attach the direct and indirect object pronouns to the end of the verb. Make sure that you put the indirect object pronoun before the direct object pronoun.

Ex: ¿Debo leer el menú para los hombres ancianos?
-Sí, léeselo.

Once again, you have to be sure to change the indirect object pronouns le/les to se when they are used before lo/la/los/las.

For a negative command, you'd have to take the "yo" form of a verb, drop the "o", and add -es if it is an -ar verb or -as if it is an -er or -ir verb. You would then insert the indirect and direct object pronouns before the verb making sure that the indirect object pronoun is first.

Ex: ¿Debo traer unos pescados para los perros locos?
-No, no se los traigas.

Next, we learned how to properly use adverbs in Spanish. Adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs. One easy way to identify an adverb is if it can answer the questions "how?", "when?", "where?", or "to what extent?". An even easier way to identify an adverb is if it ends in -ly (in Spanish, they end in -mente.)

Ex: Típicamente yo como huevos verdes con jamón.
-"Típicamente" is answering the question "to what extent?"

Ex: Tú nunca me dice cómo qué vas a cocinar.
-"nunca" is answering "how often?"

Examples of adverbs:
a tiempo - at times
a veces - sometimes
ayer - yesterday
bien - well
casi - sometimes
después - after
entonces - then
igualmente - likewise
luego - later
mal - worse
más - more
mejor - best
menos - less
mucho - a lot
muy - very
nunca - never
peor - worst
poco - little
siempre - always
tarde - later
temprano - early
todavía (no) - still
ya - already
afortunadamente - luckily
constantemente - constantly
desesperadamente - frantically
desgraciadamente - unfortunately
furiosamente - furiously
generalmente - generally
inmediatamente - immediately
lentamente - slowly
rápidamente - quickly
recientemente - recently
típicamente - typically
tranquilamente - calmly

WE use this for indirect obkect pronouns. like for example; Tenes la propina? Si, quieres que se la de? Also, we learned about direct object pronouns will are mostly lo, la, los, or las. Which an example will be, I need another drink. Can you bring me it, please?

We also learned commands with double object pronouns. Which contain me or te. An example is ; DO you want me to leave the towels? Leave me then here.

Also, we learned about adverbs.

-a tiempo
-bien
-casi
-luego

Durante este semana, nosotros aprendieron sobre comandos con doble pronombres objectos y los adverbios. Con comandos con doble pronombres objectos, los comandos siguen las reglas parecidas de doble pronombres objectos y los principales de comandos afirmativos y negativos. El cambio necesario en el subjecto permanece el mismo.

Los adverbios están semejante a los adverbios en ingles. El ingles –ly es –mente en español. Está usándolos a describir las palabras mismas en español tambien. Los están muy fáciles a compreder pero usted los necesita a practicar mucho.

This week we learned many important things. The grammar section dealt with double object pronouns again. We learned how to use them with negative and affirmative commands. When you use double object pronouns with a positive command you can attach it to the end of the conjugated verb:
Traesmela, por favor. – (You) bring it (the bill) to me, please.
When it is a negative command you must put the double object pronoun before the verb:
No me la traes. – Do not bring it to me.
We also learned about adverbs for the vocabulary section. We learned that most adverbs in English that end in –ly translate to end in Spanish in –mente:
Slowly- lentamente
Quickly- rápidamente
Generally- generalmente
Some other adverbs do not apply to this-
Late- tarde
Little- poco
Early- temprano
