DAILY PRACTICE 2

VOCABULARY DETOUR: WEATHER - NOUNS

NOUNS ("CLOUDS") CAN BE SCALED UP AND DOWN USING DETERMINING ADJECTIVES ("MANY CLOUDS", "FEW CLOUDS").

YOU WILL NOTICE A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE ADVERBS IN THE PREVIOUS SECTION AND THE DETERMINING ADJECTIVES IN THIS SECTION:

MUY NUBLADO / MUCHAS NUBES

TAN NUBLADO / TANTAS NUBES

SOMETIMES THE SAME WORD DOES BOTH JOBS, BUT NOTE THAT WHEN IT DOES THE JOB OF AN ADJECTIVE, IT ALSO INDICATES GENDER AND NUMBER:

BASTANTE NUBLADO / BASTANTES NUBES

DEMASIADO NUBLADO / DEMASIADAS NUBES

IN ENGLISH, WE USE THE ADVERBS "SO..." AND "TOO..." WITH THE DETERMINING ADJECTIVE "MANY", BUT THESE IDEAS ARE EXPRESSED IN SPANISH WITH A SINGLE ADJECTIVE.

FOR SEVERAL WEEKS, WE HAVE PRACTICED SPANISH VERBS THAT CORRESPOND IN MEANING AND IN USE WITH ENGLISH. THIS PRACTICE WILL BE MORE CHALLENGING, AS THIS CORRESPONDENCE BREAKS DOWN A BIT FOR THESE TWO PARTICULAR VERBS!

AT TIMES WE'LL TRANSLATE THE SPANISH VERB "HAS" AS "THERE IS" TO BRIDGE THE DIFFERENT WAYS SPANISH AND ENGLISH EXPRESS THE SAME IDEA.

TO HELP US UNDERSTAND WHICH SPANISH FORM TO CHOOSE, WE'LL FILL SOME ENGLISH VERB GAPS WITH FORMS THAT LOGICALLY SHOULD EXIST BUT DON'T, SUCH AS "DID BE".
