This lesson is part of the Advanced Spanish Course

In this free spanish video lesson we will learn more how to add emphasis in Spanish using El que / La que / Los que and Las que. This is the second Spanish lesson in the Advanced Spanish course that I will be running from now on with free daily Spanish lessons. In this lesson we will see ways to empasise objects in Spanish. I hope you enjoyed the first Advanced level Spanish lesson and understood most, if not all, of the content in the video. As I mentioned previously, don’t worry if you don’t completely understand every word I say in Spanish. Try to relax and aim to understand the general gist of the lesson. This is a key skill that you would do well to learn as quickly as possible: being content to follow a conversation without understanding every word, but still managing to understand what is going on. Too often students become flustered when they hear a word or two that they have never heard before or couldn’t understand in that moment and lose all track of the flow of the conversation. In saying that of course, sometimes one word can be vital and you have no chance of following what is being said without it. If you really are totally lost, it is always better to admit it and ask the person to repeat bits rather than blagging your way through. If there are any Spanish words that you don’t understand in this lesson please write a comment below in the post and myself or some other friendly Spanish student will help you out.

Lesson notes:

Vamos a continuar explicando diferentes formas de enfatizar. Os recuerdo que en la clase anterior vimos que se usa El que, La que, Los que y Las que.

Estas formas de enfatizar no sólo se usan para hablar de personas, también para objetos.

Veamos unos ejemplos:

Este es el libro que tenemos que comprar: No, el que tenemos que comprar es ese
Esta es la mesa que tiene Ana en su casa: No, la que tiene Ana es esa
Estos son los libros que tenemos que comprar: No, los que tenemos que comprar son esos
Estas son las sillas que tiene Ana en su casa: No, las que tiene son esas

Para enfatizar una información usamos Lo que: (este es el orden que usamos)

Lo que + información dada + verbo ser + término enfatizado

Por ejemplo:

Es increíble que Javier haya llegado tarde: No, lo que es increíble es que no nos haya llamado antes para avisarnos.
Es maravilloso que estés recuperado: No, lo que es maravilloso es que ya no tengo que comer el menú del hospital.
