In this Spanish lesson we are going to learn some useful Spanish adjectives related to transport. We will learn how to describe some forms of transport with adjectives such as “fast”/”rapido”, “comfortable”/”cómodo” or “dangerous”/”peligroso”. You can also add “muy….” if you wish to say that something is “very….”. For example “very safe” would be “muy seguro”: “el avíon es seguro” (the aeroplane is very safe). We will also practice making negative sentences in Spanish that you will soon see are extremely simple to construct with the insertion of a “no”. This is one of those wonderful moments when you will think, wow, Spanish is so easy!
El avíon es rápido: the plane is fast
Los aviones son rápidos: planes are fast.
El avíon es muy contaminante: the plane is very contaminating
Los aviones son muy contaminantes: planes are very contaminating
El avíon es rápido, pero muy contaminante: the plane is fast, but very contaminating.
Los aviones son rápidos, pero muy contaminantes: planes are fast, but very contaminating.
