¡Buenos días mis estudiantes! ¿Cómo están ustedes? La clase es muy buena. Esta semana vamos a estudiar ‘el’ y ‘la’ y porque en español se usan ‘el’ y ‘la.’ Y también los verbos ser y estar. Yo soy Nancy. Yo estoy muy bien. ¿Dónde está la universidad? La universidad está aquí en South Lake Tahoe. Okay, I just wanted to check in with you this week. Let you know that we are going to study the uses of the words ‘el’ and ‘la.’ Have you ever wondered why words are masculine and feminine in Spanish? And what the ‘el’ and ‘la’ mean? So masculine words have an ‘el’ in front of them. If you are a male student you would say ‘el estudiante.’ 'El libro,' 'el amor,' are examples of masculine words. Feminine words, if you are a woman you would say ‘la estudiante.’ ‘La clase.’ ‘La universidad.’ So focus on the uses of ‘el’ and ‘la’ as you learn new vocabulary about the university. And then we will work on the two verbs that mean ‘to be.” Spanish has two verbs. One is ‘ser’ and the other is ‘estar.’ They are both translate as ‘to be’ but they are used in different situations. So I would say I am Nancy with ‘ser.’ Yo soy Nancy. But to tell you how I am feeling I use ‘estar.’ To say I am fine I would say: Yo estoy bien. And then ‘ser’ and ‘estar’ – we will look at other uses as well. ‘Estar’ is used for location. ¿Dónde está la universidad? Where is the university? ¿Dónde está mi libro? Where is my book? OK – so, ‘el’ and ‘la’ for masculine and feminine. And uses of ‘ser’ and ‘estar’ this week. As you continue to talk about 'la universidad’ and the subjects that you like. Me gusta la clase. Me gusta la universidad. Hay muchos libros en la biblioteca. Hay muchos estudiantes en la clase. Adiós clase. Hasta luego.
