Learn Spanish with Latin ELE, Latin American podcast to learn Spanish in a fun way. To talk about things we like, we use the verb “gustar”. This verb in Spanish places emphasis on the activity or object that is enjoyed (not the person who likes the action). Let’s have a look at an example to understand this idea. In English the verb “to like” is “egocentric” (it focuses on the subject who performs the action), that is why when you say “I like chocolate” the stress is on “I”. However, Spanish would place emphasis on the object: the “chocolate” becomes the subject in Spanish. And thus we have “me gusta el chocolate” which would literally be “Chocolate is pleasant to me” (or if we want to follow the exact order of Spanish = to me pleasant is chocolate). “Gustar” with singular noun: Me, te, le, etc. + gusta + singular noun = me gusta el chocolate “Gustar” with plural noun: Me, te, le, etc. + gustan + plural noun = me gustan los deportes “Gustar” with verb Me, te, le, etc. + gusta + infinitive verb = me gusta hacer deportes Questions to ask about hobbies and things people like: ¿Cuáles son tus pasatiempos? = What are some of your hobbies? ¿Qué cosas te gustan? = What things do you like? Dialogue: Marco: Jessica, ¿cuáles son tus pasatiempos? Jessica: Me gusta pintar y jugar con mis gatos. ¡Es muy divertido! Y a ti, ¿qué cosas te gustan? Marco: Me gustan muchas cosas, me gusta ver películas. También me gustan los deportes, especialmente el fútbol. Jessica: A mí no, el fútbol es aburrido. Marco: También me gusta salir a comer. Me gustan mucho los restaurantes de comida peruana. Jessica: Mmm, a mí también. La comida peruana es deliciosa. ___ Marco’s profile for lessons: https://www.italki.com/teacher/1264565 Visit our website: www.latinele.com Contact email: latinele@latinele.com Join our Facebook Group to learn Spanish Follow us on: IG:  @latinele.learnspanish Facebook: @latinelepodcast Twitter: @LatinEle Youtube: Latin ELE Support us: Donate by Paypal Donate by Patreon

Learn Spanish with Latin ELE's Speaking Spanish for Beginners. In this episode, we talk about irregular verbs in Spanish. They are called irregular because, unlike regular verbs, they do not follow the same predictable patterns. That's why the change that applies to these verbs must be learnt by frequent exposure to Spanish. That's why practicing very often is key to mastering irregular verbs  Another additional difficulty is that one verb might be irregular in one tense, but not necessarily in another one. So keep this in mind as you move forward with Spanish. With time you will develop a "sense" as to when one verb just doesn't sound right. That will come with time. Instead of just memorizing long list of irregular verbs, we would advice you to select a few common ones and create meaning sentences, that way your brain can make clear connections with what is being learnt.  Examples of some frequent irregular verbs (present tense) Ser (to be, description): yo soy, tú eres. él/ella/usted es, nosotros somos, ustedes son, ellos son.  Estar (to be, location): yo estoy, tú estás, él/ella/usted está, nosotros estamos, ustedes están, ellos están.  Jugar (to play): yo juego, tú juegas, él/ella/usted juega, nosotros jugamos, ustedes juegan, ellos juegan. Tener (to have): yo tengo, tú tienes, él/ella/usted tiene, nosotros tenemos, ustedes tienen, ellos tienen.  Dormir (to sleep): yo duermo, tú duermes, él/ella/usted duerme, nosotros dormimos, ustedes duermen, ellos duermen.  _____ To request information about lessons, fill out the form on our website on the section online lessons Visit our website: www.latinele.com Contact email: latinele@latinele.com Join our Facebook Group to learn Spanish Follow us on: IG:  @latinele.learnspanish Facebook: @latinelepodcast Twitter: @LatinEle Youtube: Latin ELE Support us: Donate by Paypal Donate by Patreon
In this episode, you will learn about regular verbs in the present tense. This is important to describe daily activities and engage in your first interactions with native Spanish speakers.  In Spanish, there are three endings for verbs: -ar (i.e.:"trabajar), -er (i.e.: "comer"), and -ir (i.e.: "vivir") When you conjugate any regular verbs, you remove the ending -ar, -er, ir and add the conjugation that matches the subject. Here is how regular verbs are conjugated in the present tense.  Verb conjugation (ar, er, ir) Trabajar : yo trabajo (I work), tú trabajas (you work, informal), él trabaja (he works), ella trabaja (she works), usted trabaja (you work, formal), nosotros trabajamos (we work, for group of only men, or men and women mixed), nosotras trabajamos (only when in "we" there are only women), ustedes trabajan (you work, plural form), ellos trabajan (they work, only men or group of men and women mixed), ellas trabajan (when in "they" there are only women:  So as you can see él/ella/usted have the same conjugation. The same is true for nosotros/nosotras and ellos/ellas. Keep this in mind as this happens with these pronouns in any tense. Aprender: yo aprendo, tú aprendes, él/ella/usted aprende, nosotros(as) aprendemos, ustedes aprenden, ellos(as) aprenden. Vivir: yo vivo, tú vives, él/ella/usted vive, nosotros(as) vivimos, ustedes viven, ellos(as) viven.  Verbs used in the practice section (section with the bell, at the end): estudiar, comer, recibir.  ________ To request information about lessons, fill out the form on our website on the section online lessons Visit our website: www.latinele.com Contact email: latinele@latinele.com Join our Facebook Group to learn Spanish Follow us on: IG:  @latinele.learnspanish Facebook: @latinelepodcast Twitter: @LatinEle Youtube: Latin ELE Support us: Donate by Paypal Donate by Patreon
In this episode, you will learn how to talk about occupations in Spanish. Questions to ask about occupations: ¿Cuál es tu ocupación? ¿A qué te dedicas? ¿Qué haces?  How to reply to this question: Verb ser + ocupation. Ex: Soy doctor. No need to add article “a” (un, una in Spanish) like in English, we don’t say soy un doctor Another important verb is “trabajar” (to work). Here is the conjugation: Yo trabajo Tú trabajas Él trabaja Ella trabaja If you want to ask “where do you work?” You ask “¿dónde trabajas?”. In this question, the pronoun “tú” is implicit by  the conjugation of the verb "trabajar". Spanish speakers recognize the subject of a sentence from the conjugation of the verb. That’s why they don’t always mention the subject explicitly. To reply to that question, you can say “yo trabajo + en + name of company/institution” Occupations: Pianista (both male and female). Trabaja en conciertos Escritor(a). Trabaja en su cuarto Doctor(a). Trabaja en el hospital. Actor – actriz. Trabaja en el teatro. Abogado(a). Trabaja en la corte Profesor(a). Trabaja en la escuela, instituto, universidad. Diálogo Marco: Jessica, ¿a qué te dedicas? ¿Cuál es tu ocupación? Jessica: yo soy doctora, ¿y tú? Marco: soy profesor de español. Jessica: ¿dónde trabajas? Marco: trabajo en un instituto cerca de mi casa, ¿y tú? Jessica: trabajo en un hospital. ________ To request information about lessons, fill out the form on our website on the section online lessons Visit our website: www.latinele.com Contact email: latinele@latinele.com Join our Facebook Group to learn Spanish Follow us on: IG:  @latinele.learnspanish Facebook: @latinelepodcast Twitter: @LatinEle Youtube: Latin ELE Support us: Donate by Paypal Donate by Patreon
Hablar de la edad / Talking about age In Spanish we use the verb "tener" to talk about age. Conjugation: yo tengo / tú tienes / él - ella tiene If  you want to say, "I'm 32 years old" you have to say "yo tengo 32 años" The question for asking about somebody's age is the following : ¿Cuántos años tienes (tú)? (How old are you?).  Another variation of this question is "¿Qué edad tienes (tú)?"  Diálogo: Marco: Jessica, ¿cuántos tienes tienes? Jessica: tengo 29 años, ¿y tú, Marco? ¿Qué edad tienes? Marco: tengo 28 años. ¿y tú hermana? ¿Cuántos años tiene tu hermana? Jessica: mi hermana tiene 20. Ella es más joven. ¿y tu amigo, José? ¿Cuántos años tiene tu amigo? Marco: Mi amigo tiene 40 años. El es un poco más viejo. ______________ To request information about lessons, fill out the form on our website on the section online lessons Visit our website: www.latinele.com Contact email: latinele@latinele.com Join our Facebook Group to learn Spanish Follow us on: IG:  @latinele.learnspanish Facebook: @latinelepodcast Twitter: @LatinEle Youtube: Latin ELE Support us: Donate by Paypal Donate by Patreon
¿De dónde eres? ¿Dónde vives? Verb "ser" = "to be" It is used to talk about nationality or city of origin of somebody/something Conjugation of “ser” = yo soy (I am), tú eres (you are, informal), usted es (you are, formal), él es (he is), ella es (she is). You can use the nationality after “ser”. Ex: yo soy chileno. You can also mention the country, for that you need to add “from”, which is “de”. Ej: yo soy de Chile. Question “Where are you from?” = “¿De dónde eres (tú)?” Verb “vivir” = "to live" Conjugation of vivir = yo vivo (I live), tú vives (you live, informal), usted vive (you live, formal), él vive (he lives), ella vive (she lives). We add “en” after vivir to mention the country or city. Ej: yo vivo en Concepción. Question “Where do you live?” = ¿Dónde vives? Algunos Países y nacionalidades Estados Unidos = adj. Estadounidense (for man/woman) Canadá = adj. Canadiense (for man/woman) Reino Unido = adj. Británico/a (changes depending on gender) Australia = adj. Australiano/a (changes depending on gender) Diálogo: Marco: ¡Hola! ¿Qué tal? ¿Cómo te llamas? Jessica: me llamo Jessica, ¿y tú? Marco: me llamo Marco, ¿de dónde eres? Jessica: soy de Medellín, Colombia. Marco: yo soy de Santiago, Chile. pero vivo en Concepción. ¿Dónde vives tú? Jessica: vivo en Concepción. ________________ To request information about lessons, fill out the form on our website on the section online lessons Visit our website: www.latinele.com Contact email: latinele@latinele.com Join our Facebook Group to learn Spanish Follow us on: IG:  @latinele.learnspanish Facebook: @latinelepodcast Twitter: @LatinEle Youtube: Latin ELE Support us: Donate by Paypal Donate by Patreon
In this episode, we will look at how to introduce yourself in a formal way and also basic interaction in a formal setting. For this, keep in mind the formal greetings explained on episode one. We also explain the use of "usted", which means singular "you" in a formal context.  Additionally, we study how to say  "pleased to meet you" , which is simply "encantado" (you say this if you are a man) or "encantada" (you say this if you are a woman)  Here is the dialogue Diálogo: Ana: buenas tardes. Roberto: buenas tardes. Ana: me presento, soy Ana Jimenez. La madre de Sofía Roberto: encantado. Yo soy Roberto Ortega, el director de la escuela Ana. ¿cómo está usted? Roberto: bien, muchas gracias. ¿y usted? Ana: muy bien.
