ella - conoce

ud. -

nosotros - conocemos

ellos -

ellas - conocen

uds -

ex: Yo conozco fred.

ex2: Yo conozco al cartero
(i know the mailman)

whenever you are refering to a person
you place "al" before the person, or "a + el"

next is "ser". ser means to be.
you can use ser to tell; time, to tell what belongs to someone, to say who or what something is, what someone or something is like, or to say where someone or something is from & to describe nationality

This week in Spanish we continued to go over conocer, saber, started to learn about the verb ser, and learned some adjectives of nationality.
Saber and Conocer- Like last week conocer is used to say that you are familiar with a person, place, or thing. Saber is used to say that you know a definite piece of information like an address.
• ¿Conoces a Lebron James?
• Sí lo conozco.
• Yo sé el dirección de la escuela.
Ser- The verb ser is used to tell time and at what time something is. Ser is also used to say what belongs to someone, who or what something is, what someone or something likes, to say where someone is from, and to describe someone’s nationality.
• Son las cuatro en punto.
• Ricardo es de México.
• Israel es professor.
Adjectives of nationality:
• argentino(a)- Argentine
• canadiense- Canadian
• chileno(a)- Chilean
• colombiano(a)- Colombian
• costarricese- Costa Rican

this week in spanish we learned about comparatives and superlatives.

Comparatives:
to make a comparison of inequality when talking about actions use más + adverb + que or menos + adverb + que.

ex. = Ana les habla a los clientes más frecuentemente que Dora.
- Ana talks to the clients less frequently then Dora.
ex. = Gasto menos que mis hermanas en ropa.
- I spend money more than my sisters on clothes.

To make a comparison of equality when tlaking about actions use tan + adverb + como

ex. = Carolina sabe diseñar tan bien como Martín.
- Carolina knows how to design as well as Martin.

Superlatives:
to talk about something r someone having the most or the least of a characteristic of quality (the superlative) use:

el
la
los + noun + más + adjective
menos

¿Vas a comprar el CD más reciente o el CD más caro?

to talk about something or someone being the best, the worst,, the oldest, or the youngest use the following formula. Notice that de names the group from which the things are being compared.

el mejor(es)
la peor(es)
los + mayor(es) + noun + de
las menor(es)

Esta zapatería tiene los mejores precious de la ciudad.

A way to say something is extremely good, bad, or interesting is to add the ending - ísimo/a/os/as t the adjective.

Ese vestido es líndísimo las blusas son feísimas.

drop the last vowel of the adjective before adding ísimo

This week in Spanish we learned a lot about the verb ser. We learned about the different meaning of ser and some different words for the nationality of people. The first thing we went over this week was the different uses of the word ser:

Ser
• Use ser to tell time and to say at what time something happens
• Also use it to say what belongs to someone
• Say who or what someone or something is
• To say what someone or something is like
• To say where someone is from and to describe someone’s nationality

Examples:
• Time: Son las cuatro de la tarde.
• What belongs to someone: Son ellas libros.
• Who or what something is: Mi hermoano es el mechanico.
• What someone or something is like: Mi profesora es muy intelegente.
• Where someone is from and to describe someone’s nationality: Ella es de los Estados Unidos. Ella es estadounidense.

The next thing that we learned about this week was the adjectives of nationality:
• Argentino – Argentine
• Canadiense – Canadian
• Chileno – Chilean
• Colombiano – Colombian
• Costarricense – Costa Rican
• Español – Spanish
• Estadounidense – From The U.S.
• Guatemalteco – Guatemalan
• Hondureño – Honduran
• Mexicano – Mexican
• Nicaragüense – Nicaraguan
• Paraguayo – Paraguayan
• Peruano – Peruvian
• Salvadoreño – Salvadoran
• Uruguayo – Uruguayan

In English when “a” is followed by a vowel, add “n” to make “an.” In Spanish, “un” or “una” are used to give additional information when talking about professions. (E.x. Mi tĺo es abogado.) (E.x. Mi tĺo es un abogado excalente.) Use “ser” to describe ethnicity. (E.x. Mi padre “es” español.) With plurals use “son.” (E.x. Mis amigos son costarricense) To say we, use “somos.” (E.x. Pablo y yo somos argentino. Some vocabulary for this chapter include nationalities such as: argentine = Argentine, canadiense = Canadian, chileno = Chilean, colombiano = Colombian, costarricense = Costa Rican, español = Spanish, estadounidense = from the U.S., guatemalteco = Guatemalan, hondureño = Honduran, mexicano = Mexican, nicaragϋense = Nicaraguan, paraguayo = Paraguayan, peruano = Peruvian, salvadoreño = Salvadoran, uruguayo = Uruguayan, and venezolano.

El Diario del 2-Nov-2009 a 6-Nov-2009

This week, we reviewed CONOCER and SABER, as well as learn some uses of SER and adjectives of nationality.

CONOCER AND SABER REVIEW:

CONOCER means to know. It is used to say when you are familiar with a person, place, or thing. It has an irregular YO form in the present tense (conozco).
If you are saying you know a person, the preposition “a” comes before the person and after the conjugated verb.

SABER means to know. You use saber to say when you know a fact or a piece of information. It also has a irregular YO form in the present tense (sé) . You can also use saber to say you know how to do something.

EXAMPLES:

¿Usted sabe la ruta para llegar a la autopista?

Mi hermano y yo no conocemos al padre de Juan.

Yo no sé dónde está la Plaza de Armas.

Vanesa sabe montar en bicecleta.

Yo conozco el cartero.

SER

Yo - Soy
Tú - Eres
Él/Ella/Ud - Es
Nosotros(as) - Somos
Ellos/ellas/uds - Son

-means to be.
-used to tell someone the time or saying when something happens.
When saying the time, you use “SON”
EX: Son las tres.
-when saying what belongs to someone.
-to say who or what someone or something is. (es)
-to say what someone or something is like.
-to say where someone is from or describing their nationality.

EXAMPLES:

Ramón es nicaragüenese.
