Welcome to Lesson Six of WordBrewery’s Spanish Fundamentals series. We have scoured thousands of recent Spanish-language news articles and chosen 300 sentences from them to teach you the essentials of Spanish grammar and vocabulary. We have also had native speakers record audio of each sentence, and we’ve created an Anki deck where you can practice these and other sentences.
Review of previous lessons
This post assumes knowledge of previous lessons in the Spanish Fundamentals series; each post defines only words that are appearing for the first time in the series. Since it has been awhile since our last post, here are nearly all of the sentences used in the first five posts of this series. If you can’t read all of those sentences quickly and fluently with 100% understanding, please go back and review the earlier lessons:
We prepared a separate post explaining these two words, both of which can often be translated as “for.” That post includes printable PDFs with sixty sentences from the news from WordBrewery’s database that contain either por or para–an illustration of our new automatic sentence list feature. Check out the post here.
36. Y todo por dinero!
37. No es poco dinero.
38. Pero está muy bien, es divertido.
These sentences contain only cognates or words that you have encountered in this or previous lessons. Can you read them quickly and fluently? Practice them until you can. Memorizing them can’t hurt, either.
Como dos en uno.
¿Y ahora qué hacer?
Grammar note: Note in the above sentence that the lemma eso (that) changes to esa to agree with the feminine noun la idea.
