Beginner Spanish Practice MP3 CourseBeginner Spanish Practice Video Course

This is an interactive Spanish video where you have the opportunity to practice Spanish at beginner level with a native Spanish speaker.

In this Spanish lesson we will practice describing people in Spanish with Ser and Tener and the parts of the body in Spanish that we have learned in previous classes. Ser and Tener are very important Spanish verbs to use when describing people physically in Spanish. This Spanish Practice Lesson follows on from previous lessons that analysed specifically El verbo Ser, El verbo Tener and physical descriptions in Spanish.

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 22: Describing people in Spanish with Ser and Tener from my Beginner Spanish Course.
