Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Eric: Hi everyone, I'm Eric.
Alex: And I'm Alex.
Eric: And welcome to Must-Know Spanish Sentence Structures, Season 1, Lesson 16. Describing Emotions.
Eric: In this lesson, you'll learn how to use a sentence pattern for describing someone's emotions or feelings.
PATTERN
Eric: For example, "You are bored."
Alex: Tú estás aburrido.
Alex: [slow] Tú estás aburrido.
Eric: The pattern for describing someone's emotions or feelings has 3 elements. First, the pronoun "you."
Alex: Tú.
Eric: Second, the verb "to be."
Alex: estás.
Eric: Third, the adjective "bored."
Alex: aburrido.
Eric: Altogether, we have... "You are bored. "
Alex: Tú estás aburrido. [slow] Tú estás aburrido. [normal] Tú estás aburrido.
Eric: You can omit the pronoun if it’s obvious who the subject is. Conjugate the verb "to be" in the present indicative form according to the pronoun. Then, follow it with an adjective to demonstrate an emotion or feeling.
Alex: Tú estás aburrido.
Eric: So remember: To describe someone's emotions or feelings, start with a pronoun, add the verb "to be," plus an adjective.
Eric: Here’s another example meaning, "He is tired." First, the pronoun "he."
Alex: Él.
Eric: Second, the verb "to be."
Alex: está.
Eric: Third, the adjective meaning "tired."
Alex: cansado.
Eric: Altogether we have...
Alex: Él está cansado. [slow] Él está cansado. [normal] Él está cansado.
Eric: "He is tired."
[pause]
Alex: Él está cansado.
Eric: How do you say - "I'm happy." To give you a hint, "happy" is...
Alex: contenta. [slow] contenta. [normal] contenta.
Eric: "I'm happy."
[pause]
Alex: Yo estoy contenta. [slow] Yo estoy contenta. [normal] Yo estoy contenta.
[pause]
Alex: Yo estoy contenta.
REVIEW
Eric: Let's review the sentences from this lesson. I’ll give you the English equivalent of the phrase, and you’re responsible for shouting it out loud in Spanish. Here we go.
Eric: "You are bored."
[pause]
Alex: Tú estás aburrido.
[pause]
Alex: Tú estás aburrido.
Eric: "He is tired."
[pause]
Alex: Él está cansado.
[pause]
Alex: Él está cansado.
Eric: "I'm happy."
[pause]
Alex: Yo estoy contenta.
[pause]
Alex: Yo estoy contenta.

Outro

Eric: Okay. That's all for this lesson. You learned a pattern for describing someone's emotions or feelings, as in...
