Fernando: Exactly, pasa, pasa. The next phrase is Estás en tu casa.

Fernando: Estás en tu casa. The next word is el hogar.
JP: el hogar. means home. hogar. You can also say casa, right? for home?
Fernando: You can. Casa means house, it get's translated as home sometimes... el hogar is more of an abstract concept of home. el hogar.
JP: Ok, what's next.

JP: El esposo, this is the word for spouse, in this case it means husband. Right? So we have doña Elena, and then don Roberto...
Fernando: es el esposo. Ok, and our last word is traer.
JP: Traer, to bring. Traer.
LESSON FOCUS
JP: Ok, today we're going to review the unstressed possessive adjectives.
Fernando: Ok, I think we covered them in Gengo Episode 6.
JP: We did, but there were a lot of them, so quick review. We heard the word for my a bunch, when Jimmy was talking about his family.
Fernando: mi papá, mi mamá, mi hermana, y mi hermano.
JP: We also heard the familiar word for your when she says "you are in your home."
Fernando: Estás en tu casa.
JP: Ok, we also head the third person su.
Fernando: Jimmy asked ¿Esa foto es de su familia, don Roberto?
JP: Ok, so this su, it means “your.” Jimmy uses the third person with don Roberto, because that's the way you speak in the formal register. su... su familia.
Fernando: We also hear nuestro hijo, nuestras hijas.
JP: Ok, so you notice how in Spanish, the possessive adjective agrees in gender and number with the noun, just like any other Spanish adjective.
Fernando: Right, both nuestro hijo and nuestras hijas mean "our" our son, our daughters.
OUTRO
Fernando: Well, JP, I think that’s our cue.
JP: That's a good idea, Fernando. Folks, if you want to see all of those possessive adjective forms in a chart, you can check out the grammar section in the lesson note. Now remember, you can find the lesson note on the website which is www.SpanishPod101.com, there you'll get access to all of the materials that go along with this lesson. Now, it's time to say hasta luego.
Fernando: Hasta entonces.

Hola Jane de Vries,


Thank you for posting and for sharing your experience with us :smile:

I think that if you are interested in living in Latin America it is possible if you know enough Spanish!

I had a home stay in Ecuador years ago and it was wonderful! Could a 65 year old woman have a home stay in a South american Country? Avisame! Estoy muy interesando!!
