02 Demonstrative Adjectives (Part 1): This & That

Posted by Señor Jordan on Nov 26, 2008 in grammar, year 2 |

¡Hola estudiantes! En este video, we’ll be learning about the singular form of demonstrative adjectives (this, that).  Because of the gender in Spanish, when we use these as adjectives, there are two ways to say each.

this (este / esta)
that (ese / esa)
that [far away] (aquel / aquella)

Stay tuned for the next video in this series where we learn the plural forms and I teach you a special to remember them!

Feel free to leave questions/comments/suggestions about this video below.

Thanks for watching!Vocabulario:
este / esta – this
ese / esa – that
aquel / aquella – that (far away)

el coche – car
el lápiz – pencil
el libro – book
el marcador – marker
el perro – dog
el pupitre – desk
el teléfono – telephone
la bandera – flag
la calculadora – calculator
la camiseta – t-shirt
la silla – chair

Muy Bueno. Esta tema es mas claro que antes. Me parece que el llave aqui es conocer el genero de todos los cosas. Sera difficil par ami.

Gracias otra vez

i had an awesome spanish teacher at one point who made up a VERY helpful little rhyme to remember these….
“there are “T”s in this and these, but not in that and those”
to remember that estos/estes/estas means these and esos/eses/esas means those.
