Daily Spanish Vocabulary #3

This is the third of a series I'll be making to help people here learn some more vocabulary. I'll be using a selection of words: sometimes based on current issues, sometimes based on requests, and other times based on what I feel like doing. Anyways, enjoy!

Today's topic is based on the UK's royal family.

la realeza or la familia real

Noun

Definition(s): royalty

la princesa

Noun

Definition(s): princess

el duque

Noun

Definition(s): duke

la duquesa

Noun

Definition(s): duchess

la corona

Noun

Definition(s): crown

"Coronar" also means "to crown".

la monarquía

Noun

Definition(s): monarchy

nacer

Verb

Definition(s): to be born

And some more UK-related vocabulary:

Londres

Noun

Definition(s): London

Gales

Noun

Definition(s): Wales

Escocia

Noun

Definition(s): Scotland

Gran Bretaña

Noun

Definition(s): Great Britain

Sorry that there are so many nouns. I'll try to make the next one more balanced.

Examples:

«Él nacerá pronto, así que seré muy feliz.»

«No, los Estados Unidos no tienen una monarquía

«Vivía en Londres hasta encontré un trabajo nuevo.»

«Gran Bretaña no es un país. Es una isla.»

«La princesa y el príncipe viven en un castillo.»

«La realeza tiene una vida tranquila.»

«La reina tiene la corona hasta está muerto.»

«En el verano, Escocia es más popular.»

«¿Quieres ir a Gales

«Esto es donde el duque y la duquesa vivieron hace años.»

That's it for now. I hope you learned some new vocabulary today! Please upvote if you liked this, and make sure to see tomorrow's installment. If you have any requests for the next installment, please comment below with your idea. Thanks for reading this; bye! ~

I didn't understand the seventh sentence.. " La reina tiene la corona hasta está muerto"...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mr.Smilie

I was mistaking "muerto" for "marido" (which I shouldn't have because I have been looking at "muerto" several times in book titles just tonight..) which gave me something along the lines of "the queen has the crown making her husband" which seemed confusing and wrong, so I was playing with a looser 'slang' translation "making her king" and a couple things like that but they seemed wrong too.. so I checked google translate for the correct answer, silly me, "untill death"..

although I do find myself impressed whenever I look at a Spanish sentence lately, I find I know more then I expect most of the time! (at least on basic sentences..) Lets hear three cheers for DuoLingo!

It is fun to read an article and know more than you expected.

¿El correcto no es La reina tiene la corona hasta que este muerta?
