This is part of what I wrote tonight for my Spanish I class. This web-site is really helpful in some additional notes for the students. I created some power points with various pictures. I hope it gets their attention and keeps it :).
Spanish Adjectives Part 1: Descriptions
I am teaching the verbs "estar" and "ser." I think they have mastered "estar" in the singular form now. So we are moving on over to "ser" for those permanent un-changeable conditions. However, there are constantly side by side, estas palabras, "estar" and "ser." Confundibles!
When I was typing up "sucio," I couldn't help thinking of this term my mom told me. While I was single, young and vulnerable, but not so naive, older men always had "eyes" for me, and sometimes, yes, I found them attractive in a Jorge Ramos sort of way.
Never ever did I pursue a relationship though with an older man - hay Dios! My mom teased me and said "you will change Depends! Vas a ver, keep looking at older men! Con las canas en los ....." Use your imagination for that last term. That's when I got to know the term "viejo sucio" real well. Pero sabes que, no voy a ensenar esta palabra! Solamente como "el nino esta sucio porque jugó en el barro..." Solamente - TE JURO!
