Study Realidades 1 Ch 4b Vocabulary

1. Study Ch 4b Vocabulary on Quizlet:


2. Click here and Watch the GramActiva Video and Study the IRREGULAR Verb Ir - to go on Quizlet to learn how to say what someone is "going to do":

Ir - to go







Ir - to go (correctly conjugated to match the subject) + a + infinitive (Verb) =  to be going to + verb 

Yo voy a jugar al béisbol. (I am going to play baseball.)

Tú vas a jugar al fútbol americano.(You are going to play football.)

Juan va a comer la pizza. (Juan is going to eat the pizza.)

Marta y Juan van a beber los refrescos. (Marta and Juan going to drink the sodas.)


3. Learn what a "BOOT" verb is: Click and Study the "U" to "UE" Stem Changing "BOOT" Verb Jugar - to play (a game or sport)

juego jugamos
juegas jugáis
juega juegan

*Note: Everything inside the "BOOT" has a "U" to "UE" Stem Change, but Jugar  - to play conjugates like a regular -AR Verb.

4. Review the IRREGULAR Verb Estar - to be (more temporary) and the acronym PLACE for when to use it instead of Ser - to be (which is more permanent).








Assignments Weeks 4/6/20 - 4/17/20

Ch 3b Spanish Adjectives:

sabroso(a) tasty
horrible horrible
bueno(a) good
malo(a) bad

Singular Definite Articles - "the" Plural Definite Articles - "the"
El  Los
La Las

Un Unos
Una Unas



Rules for making Nouns and Adjectives Plural:

1. Spanish Articles (Definite/Indefinite), Nouns and Adjectives must always agree in Gender (Masculine/Feminine/ Neutral) and in Number (Singular/Plural)


2. If they end with Consonants – add  -es


If they end with Vowels – add –s


If they end with Z’s change to “c” and add –es


* USUALLY, but NOT ALWAYS if they end in –s already (they stay the same)


3. Watch the Realidades 1 Ch 3b Gramactiva Video Making Adjectives plural: 


4. Study the following Ch 3b Spanish nouns with their correct Spanish adjectives:


5. Practice changing the Spanish adjectives you learned above to match the Spanish nouns on Quizlet (you will need to type the correct Spanish adjective and spell it correctly to get it right):


6. Ch 4a Realidades 1 Vocabulary p. 194 in Realidades 1 textbook, and Vocab Video to Study:

        A. This chapter teaches us places someone could go to in Spanish

        B. The VERY irregular verb conjugation of the verb Ir - to go. NOTE: It reminds us of ser/estar in the "Yo" form, but it looks like an "-IR" verb but conjugates similar to -AR verbs, so it's VERY IRREGULAR and has it's own rules.

Study the IRREGULAR Verb Ir - to go on Quizlet:

Ir - to go







Yo voy al supermercado. I go to the supermarket (grocery store).

vas a la las montañasYou go (informal) to the mountains.

Juan va a la iglesia. Juan (or John in English) goes to the church.

Marta y Juan van al restaurante. Marta and Juan go to the restaurant.


              C. We learn another Spanish contraction, "al" which means "to the".  This contraction is used in front of a masculine/singular location, and to tell where someone goes to. We use "a la" (which also means "to the") in front of a feminine/singular location. We also DON'T contract when we use a los - to the (masculine/plural), and a las - to the (feminine/plural) in Spanish.

* There are only TWO Contractions in Spanish: al - to the and del - of or from the, watch the video to review both of these contractions:

Ch 4a Realidades 1 Quedar(se) - to stay (remain) is considered a "reflexive verb", which means the one performing the action is also receiving the action:

 Quedar(se) en casa - to stay (remain) at home (house)

*quedar conjugates like a regular -AR Verb thankfully!

me quedo en casa - I stay at home

nos quedamos en casa - we stay at home

te quedas en casa - you stay at home

*os quedáis en casa - you all stay at home (*Spain/Informal)

se queda en casa - you (formal) stay at home /he or she stays at home

(a usted, a él, a ella) to clarify

se quedan en casa  - you all stay at home/ they stay at home

(a ustedes, a ellos, a ellas) to clarify

A. Reflexive Your Verby Song:

* This song teaches how all "reflexive verbs" work in Spanish, notice that there will be other correct ways to say the same thing in Spanish!

Other common verbs that are also used in a reflexive way in this song and their meaning:



to bathe/wash (oneself)

lavar(se) / bañar(se)

to brush (oneself)


to shower (oneself)


to wake up (oneself)

*despertar(se) (stem-changing e-ie in some forms)

NOTE the action "doer"/ and action "receiver"

have to be the same to be reflexive.

Me lavo las manos. (reflexive)

I wash the hands (myself). 

Yo lavo el plato. (not reflexive)

I wash the plate.
