In this Spanish lesson we are going to learn some useful Spanish verbs related to hobbies and leisure time activities, such as “Leer” (to read) and “Ir a la playa” (to go to the beach). In the next Spanish lesson we will learn how to use el verbo “gustar” (the verb “to like”) to describe things you like to do and in the previous two lessons we learned how to describe how often you do things usually using Spanish adverbs of frequency and Spanish expressions of frequency. Talking about things you enjoy doing in your leisure time is a great way to practice using a variety of Spanish verbs and vocabulary and the Spanish present tense. Repeat the verbs after me while you watch this Spanish lesson and then try to practice as much as you can writing sentences descrbing things you like to do and how often you do them.
