Spanish Lesson 4

Transcript below:)

Hola, mis amigos. Bienvenidos a lección cuatro con Tobi.

Look at you, listening to Spanish and understanding. Muy bien. Well done!

Our next two lessons are going to prep you for asking that special someone to eat food with you, and maybe more…

So far you’ve learned to,

Añádame en Snapchat. – Add me on Snapchat.

Can I buy you a drink? ¿Te invito una copa?

Do you want to dance? ¿Quieres bailar?

Thanks for the dance. Gracias por el baile.

And you can ask for beer…

I would like 2 beers, please. Me gusta dos cervezas, por favor.

I would like an enchilada. Me gusta una enchilada.

But how do you ask someone out for a date?

Do you want to go to…? – ¿Quieres ir a….?

Movies? ¿Al cine?

Dinner? ¿A cenar?

Dancing? ¿A bailar?


Do you want to get a coffee? ¿Quieres tomar un cafe?

Hopefully, they reply sí. And remember, no is no in any language.

Text me your address. Mándame tu dirrección. 

I’ll pick you up. Yo te recogeré.

That literally translates to “I’ll collect you” because it’s an expression. You’re really not going to lift them and carry them with you, or pick up. 

And here’s Aunt Tobi’s advice. Meet him there and bring a friend.

I’ll meet you there. Te encontraré allí.

I’m bringing a friend. Estoy trayendo una amiga.

And here’s some nouns to help your evening.

Chair – silla

Table – mesa

Cup – taza

Glass – vaso

Plate – plato

Fork – tenedor

Knife – cuchillo

Spoon – cuchara

Napkin – servilleta

Wood – madera

Metal – metal

Metallic – metálico

And let’s describe these nouns – remember your adjectives agree in number and gender, unless it’s a color like violet. 

Long wood – madera larga

Empty cup – taza vacua

Wide chair – silla ancha

Fat forks – tenedores gordos

Thick spoon – cuchara grueso

White napkins – servilletas blancas

Wet floor – piso mojado 

Dry wine – vino seco

Tight cat – gato apetado

Dirty boy – chico sucio

Hard table – mesa dura

She likes long, thick, and hard wood. Ella le gusta madera larga, gruesa, y dura.

My wet cat is empty. Mi gato seco está vacuo.

I want to spoon. Quiero a cucharear.

I like to fork. Me gusta el tenedor.

And some review!

I promise you, I am 18 years old. – Te prometo, tengo dieciocho años.

How old are you? ¿Cuantos años tienes?

It costs 20 dollars. – Cuesta veinte dólares.

Test time!!!

The dirty boy wants a wet cat. – El chico sucio quiere un gato mojado.

She likes to spoon. Ella le gusta a cuchaerear.

My red cup is empty. Mi taza roja está vacua.

He likes tight chairs. Él le gusta sillas apetadas.

    Hey there! So as much as I am completely enamored with your spin on Spanish lessons… and your writing style in general. I am curious to know where you learned Spanish? You seemed to have left that little snippet out of your “about me” section, and on the lessons. Only reason I ask is because some of the words you use aren’t familiar to me or my boyfriend, (who’s a native speaker) but I know how different the dialect can be depending on the country it’s taught/spoken in. Anyways, keep up the good work, I love listening to them and look forward to the next! Saludos

      Hi Abby,
      I grew up in the Bay Area of California, near San Jose. I learned Spanish in school, spoke with the locals, and continued taking Spanish classes throughout college – so my vocab is from books, but the expressions are from all over because I’ve had professors from Mexico, Barcelona, Madrid, Paraguay, Columbia, Costa Rica, and more–so it’s a total hodge podge of dialects.

      Thanks for listening… I think you could be the only one LOL! I’ll keep making them, I guess.
