Last week Katie asked us to include some adverbs and adjectives and how to use them, so that’s what we’re going to do today!
An adjective is just a word that describes something- age, color, appearance.. etc.
If you’re anything like us and you don’t know what an adverb is, we looked it up 🙂 An adverb modifies verbs, adjectives and other adverbs.
So anyway enough with the English lesson, it’s time for Spanish!
Many times “mente” can be added onto a word to make it an adverb, words like:
Actualmente (ahk-too-al-men-tay) = actually
Inmediatamente (in-med-ee-at-a-men-tay) = immediately
Realmente (Ray-al-men-tay) = really
Rápidamente (Rap-eed-a-men-tay) = quickly
Cuidadosamente (Kweed-ad-oh-sa-men-tay) = carefully
Absolutamente (abso-loot-a-men-tay) = absolutely
Frecuentemente (Fray-kwen-ta-men-tay) = frequently
Raramente (Rah-rah-men-tay) = rarely
And these are just a few!– we found a great list of more here!
As far as adjectives, there is another pretty extensive list of those here, but we’ll put some of the more common ones in this post with the pronunciations.
Abierto (Ah-bee-air-to) = open
Barato (Bah-rah-to) = cheap
Dulce (Dool-say) = sweet
Fantástico (Fahn-tast-ee-ko) = fantastic
Feliz (Fell-ees) = happy
Feo (Fay-O) = ugly
Mejor (May-hor) = better
Peligroso (Pel-ee-gross-o) = dangerous
Seguro (Seg-oo-ro) = Safe
We could write a million more but this post has to end somewhere! Any suggestions for what you’d like to see next week? Let us know!
