Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it’s time for a quick cultural insight.
Laura: This same pattern of Tienes + noun can be used to talk about subjective things as well, such as hunger or sleep. ¿Tienes hambre? and ¿Tienes sueño? Meaning [are you hungry/are you sleepy] are questions you will hear often.
Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Laura: Hasta pronto.
