01 La ropa

Posted by Señor Jordan on May 16, 2009 in -AR, conjugation, present, verbs, vocabulary, year 1 |

Hola. This video lesson covers la ropa (better known as ‘clothing’).  In this video we cover some common words. Some will vary on who you talk to and what country you’re in. These should be fairly understood…  (see notes at bottom of post)

Enjoy the video!  Let me know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions below.

useful verb:

la camisa – shirt
la camiseta – t-shirt
el suéter – sweater
la sudadera – sweatshirt
la chaqueta -jacket
los pantalones – pants
los jeans – jeans
el vestido – dress
los pantalones cortos – shorts
las medias – panty hose
los calcetines – socks
los zapatos – shoes
los tenis – tennis shoes
las sandalias – sandals
las chanclas – flip-flops/slippers
el abrigo – coat
el traje de baño – bathing suit
la ropa interior – underwear

las sandalias can be sandals or flip-flops;
chanclas are flip-flops/slippers (I believe it to be a more Mexican word in this context)

In México, some of these words might be as follows:
la camiseta => la playera
la chaqueta => la chamarra
los pantalones cortos => los chores / (el short?)

Great stuff. I noticed one small typo – you have el traje de baño as “bathroom”, instead of “bathing suit”.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for your awesome videos. There is nothing quite like seeing the opject, hearing what it sounds like, and seeing how it is spelled all in the same forum. Finally a training regimen for the visual learners! Just one thing: “el abrigo” doesn’t appear in the word list.

I liked the video but I found the repeating the word was quite annoying for me. Other than that the video was great.

Senjor Jordan,
This lesson is really helpful. Thank you SO much! Do I always have to say el, la, los, or las in front of a noun? Thanks so much! Your Videos are very helpful!
