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 personality and character in Spanish with various useful Spanish adjectives and El verbo Ser – the verb To be. In previous Spanish lessons in this courses we have looked at describing physical appearances in Spanish and now we will concentrate on describing personality with Spanish adjectives such as “ordenado/a” (tidy) and “divertido/a” (good fun). Maybe someone asks you about a friend, an acquaintance or a family member and it is useful to be able to describe them in terms of their appearance and their character 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 23: Describing personality and character in Spanish from my Beginner Spanish Course.
