01-013 – ¿Cómo eres? – Describing your personality (part 2)

Posted by Señor Jordan on Sep 24, 2008 in basics, conjugation, grammar, year 1

This lesson builds off of what we went over in the previous video as well as adds the concept of agreement. Basically, if I am describing a male, I have to make sure my adjective also is the male form.  If I am describing a female, I have to change the adjective to the female form.  Watch the video and it will (hopefully) make more sense! 🙂

Hope it was helpful.  Please leave comments, questions or suggestions if you so desire.
