Below you will find the terms for the weather in Spanish and a photo chart for some of the weather terms. Knowing the weather is very important in any language, for example, what if you needed to know how to dress in Ecuador?
Have you ever wanted to learn basic Spanish lessons about asking basic questions to someone? This lesson will be about asking someone about themselves, such as where are you from and where you live. This lesson will also teach you how to reply and answer to those questions.
As you can see in the picture below, the word tú at the end of the question means that you are talking to someone around your age. Ud. is when you are talking to an older person.
tú = person around your age Ud.= person that is older than you, such as an adult
The word soy means I'm and de means from. So if you put it together, you get, I'm from. If you are from that place and you live somewhere else, you would have to say , pero vivo en. Meaning that you live somewhere else from where you are from. This is similar to saying, I'm from. You would just need to add, pero vivo en, after the place you are from. So its, Soy de (a place of where you're from) pero vivo en ( a place where you live, instead of where you are from).
After you tell where you're from and/or live, you can ask them, ¿Y tú ? or ¿Y Ud.? , meaning " And you?" or they may say, Yo tambien, which means " Me, too".
¿Y tú ? = And you? Yo tambien = Me, too.
* All questions in español has an upside question mark before the question, another question mark, that is not upside down, is after the question. *Exclamation points are similar to the question marks in questions. It has an upside down exclamation point before and after the sentence.
Here's a video of a Hispanic and an American student asking where they

Here's a link to learn the days of the weeks en español from Temperance and I.
In order to learn the days of the week, you will need to know how to say the days of the week in Spanish and know what days they are. Unlike English, the days of the week in Spanish aren't capitalized and the week starts with Monday instead of Sunday. *miércoles and sábado are the only two days that have accents on top of them
Knowing the alphabet is very important to learn. By learning the Spanish
alfabeto, you can know how to write someone's name, if they don't know
English. If you're at work and someone approaches you, asking for something,
but you can't understand whose name they are saying. So you can ask them
to spell it in español and you would know who they are talking about.
The alfabeto is very easy to learn and kind of fun too. *Fun fact : There are 27 letters in the Spanish alfabeto, whereas in English, there are only 26. * All español letters are lower-cased, not upper-cased.
a (ah) i (eee) p (peh) x (equis)
b (beh) j (hota) q (cooo) y ( eee griega)
c (seh) k (kah) r (ereh) z (seta)
d (deh) l (eleh) s (eseh)
e (eh) m (emeh) t (teh)
f (efeh) n (eneh) u (oooo)
g (hey) ñ (enyeh) v (beh)
h (acheh) o (o) w (doble ve)
You may notice that the pronunciation for the letter "v" is the same as the letter "b". Those 2 letters' pronunciation are the same, so if you are spelling a name, Billy. You would have to say "B" larga. If the name is Victor, the "V" would be corta. So you need to tell which letter you are saying, either b (larga) or v (corta). Both same pronunciations, but different letter.
b = larga v = corta

Imagine a time where your really late to school, but then you don't know the time. You see a spanish speaking person and you don't know how to ask for time. Here in this lesson I'm going to teach you how to ask for time and how you answer it. So the phrase for asking time in english is "What time is it", but in spanish it is "¿Qué hora es?","¿Qué hora son?", or "¿Qué hora tiene(s)?". Well when you answer it is really simple. The phrase is Son las.. which means It is..
Well when you answer for 12:00 pm or am there is also phrases for those too. For 12:00 pm in the middle of the day it is " es el mediodía". For 12:00 am it is "es la medianoche". Well in spanish when you say one o'clock its not " son las uno" that is not the right way to say one o'clock.The correct way is "es la una punto". Well "punto" means "on the dot", so if i say "son las dos punto". It means 2 o'clock on the dot. Well there are also phrases for in the morning, afternoon, and evening. In the morning is "de la mañana".For afternoon is "de la tardes". Then for the evening is "de la noches". You will have to add this when your giving somebody the time. Below you will see flashcards that you can use to practice the phrases in the lesson.
This video is going to be about asking for time and how to
