This lesson is part of the Beginner Practice Spanish Course
(58 Spanish video or mp3 lessons. 2 hrs 28 mins)
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 food shopping in Spanish – how to get by in a Spanish supermarket, street market or shop when buying food. In the previous lesson we looked at lots of useful food vocabulary in Spanish and now we will practice lots of useful Spanish phrases that you can use when food shopping in Spanish. We will practice different Spanish quantifiers such as a kilo of, in fillets, in slices, a can of, a tin of, a piece of, etc, how to ask questions such as “How much is this?”, and how to say things such as “I would like…”. Spanish supermarkets and street markets are fantastic places to pass your time with a wonderful array of amazing ingredients and great local characters to interact with. Food shopping in Spanish can be great fun when you have a few basic phrases, a good repertoire of relevant vocabulary and a bit of confidence.
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 32: Food shopping in Spanish (Part 2) from my Beginner Spanish Course.
