Damos inicio a nuestro curso de inglés en su nivel elemental. En la lección de hoy vamos a aprender a hablar sobre las mascotas. Para poder expresarnos en estos casos aprenderemos tres nuevos adjetivos, todos comenzando con la letra "I": Interesting, Independent, Intelligent (interesante, independiente, inteligente).
Elementary - pets
In this lesson, you will learn to talk about your pets. We will learn three new adjectives, all beginning with "I":
We are now going to watch a short movie. Emilia and Nina are talking about pets. What adjectives did they use to talk about their animals?
Did you get those adjectives? How many did you find? Let´s look at some of them:
- Independent. Cats are very independent. This means they are happy to be on their own.
- Affectionate. Dogs are affectionate; this is the same as saying dogs are friendly.
- Intelligent. Another word for intelligent is clever. Monkeys are very intelligent.
- Interesting. Turtles are interesting. Turtles are quite different from other pets. This makes them interesting.
We can also use these words to describe people.
He is interesting. She is very intelligent. James is independent.
So what do we do if we want to say that two things are equal? Cats are affectionate. So are dogs. Cats are as affectionate as dogs. This means they are both equally friendly.
Does Nina think cats are as affectionate as dogs? Yes, Nina thinks cats are not as affectionate as dogs.
When we want to say two things are equal, we use "as" for an adjective and "as". Here are some more examples, this time about people.
John is not as tall as me. He is not as friendly as his brother.
It is now your turn to practice speaking. I will show you part of the movie. Watch the people, and then listen to me. Repeat what I say,
"I like cats but they are not as friendly as dogs."
"Cats aren´t as affectionate as dogs".
"Cats aren´t as intelligent as dogs".
In today´s lesson we have been talking about pets. We have learn how to make comparison like:
"Cats are as clever as dogs".
"Cats are not as friendly as dogs".
We´ve also learn some useful adjectives. We can use these to describe pets or people.
"An interesting person."
"An affectionate dog".
