(58 Spanish video or mp3 lessons. 2 hrs 28 mins)
This is an interactive Spanish video where you get the chance to practice your Spanish skills at beginner level with a native Spanish speaker.
In this Spanish lesson we will practice more things related to introducing yourself in Spanish and exchanging pleasantries – specifically how to state your own nationality in Spanish and how to ask another person their nationality. In the original theory lesson on this subject we looked at various nationalities in Spanish and how to change them according to whether you are a man or a woman.
Please try to watch the video first before looking at the lesson notes. Answers to all tasks involved in the lesson will be given at the end of the post. Try not to look at the answers until you have tried a good few times to give your own responses.
This lesson practices the information taught in Beginner Spanish Lesson 2: How to state and ask nationalities in Spanish from my Beginner Spanish Course.
Please, answer the following questions:
1. How do you ask someone where they are from in a friendly way?
2. How do you ask someone where they are from in a formal way?
I will now say a few countries in English and you have to tell me in Spanish that you are from that country and that your nationality is that of the particular country.
For example, “France”: “Soy de Francia” “Soy francés” or “Soy francesa”, depending on whether you are a man or a woman:
4. United States
1. ¿De dónde eres?
2. ¿De dónde es usted?
3. Soy de España / Soy español / Soy española
4. Soy de Estados Unidos / Soy Americano / Soy americana
5. Soy de Inglaterra / Soy ingles / Soy inglesa
6. Soy de Irlanda / Soy irlandés / Soy irlandesa
7. Soy de Escocia / Soy escocés / Soy escocesa
8. Soy del País de Gales / Soy galés / Soy galesa
