7_Weeks_In_Bogotá My name is Kristie, and I will be spending almost 2 months in Bogotá, Colombia this summer to do volunteer work with kids. My goal is to improve my Spanish, so I will let you know how that goes! =)

Spanish Word of the Day!!!!!

COLOMBIA | Sunday, 10 April 2011 | Views [526]

Buenas tardes,

Ok, so I thought I could make this Blog useful (for myself and my readers), since it already has so many other qualities of a great blog...

So I have decided I will feature a Spanish word of the day, verb of the day, as well as a short phrase. I will pick words and phrases which I have never encountered before (or could never seem to fully remember). Because I only have 7 weeks (and 1 day..) until I leave, I really need to increase my vocabulary, so this may be something very beneficial! =)

Right now my Spanish level is intermediate across the board…meaning I can read, write, listen, and speak at that level. Basically what I'm saying is..I could use all the help I could get at this point!

So here it is, the first ever, Spanish word, verb, and phrase of the day:

Word: el abecedario / el alfabeto = the alphabet

Verb: quitar = to remove / to take off

Phrase: Me hace ______. = That/It makes me _____. You can fill in the blank with an adjective. Por ejemplo (for example): Me hace nervioso. = That/It makes me nervous. Me hace feliz. = That/It makes me happy.

Hasta luego!
