I meant they accept grandpa for abuelo so they should ALSO accept grandma for abuela
isn't it pronounced abuelita? or is it just me? i cant hear the sound cos im in class
Abuela is more formal whereas abuelita is more informal. IE if you're talking to someone else about your grandmother/grandma you would more likely say mi abuela, whereas among family or directly to your grandma you might use abuelita. IE talking to an acquaintance/stranger Persona: ¿Porqué está triste, señorito? Yo: Mi abuelo no está bien. Él tiene daño de cerebro. P: Lo siento, señorito. Hay algo puedo hacer? Y: No gracias. Gracias por preguntame.
Vs. Familia: ¿Porqué estás triste Runi? Y: Porque Abuelito está enfermo y nos no creamos que va a vivir más de un año. F: ellos me dan abrazos Sí es muy triste. Pero él va a vivir con nuestro Padre celestial. Él estará más mejor y feliz allá.
Hi, you have a few minor typos in your Spanish, but i want to warn you about one in specific: "mas mejor" should never be used and instead "mucho mejor" or simply "mejor" would be the right choices. This is a common mistake even among native speakers, and it is really not well seen, unless it's joking.
Listening with headphones and the fast pronunciation just sounds like "Bluhbela" every time.
I was kinda annoyed that it wont let me use grandma instead of grandmother.. Especially since there are so many different names for grandmother, nana, grandma, ect
There is also a Spanish equivalent for Grandma. Maybe that will be in a later lesson.
I put your grandmother with a emoji smiley face at the end and i got it wrong I just wanted to see if it would work.
El and La mean "the". So if you say "tu la abuela" you'd be saying "your the grandma". I'm still new at this too though, so I'm just guessing from what I've learned.
I'm confused about the word "usted" now. When would you use tu and when would you use usted? Or am I more confused than I think I am?
