Lesson Transcript

Jessi: Top 25 Spanish Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 19: What's wrong? in Spanish (In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Spanish learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.)
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question What's wrong? In Spanish this is
Javier: ¿Qué pasa?
The first word in the question is
Javier: qué
Jessi: meaning what in English.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) qué
Jessi: Listen again and repeat.
Javier: qué
{Pause}
Jessi: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Javier: pasa
Jessi: meaning happens.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) pasa
Jessi: Now repeat.
Javier: pasa
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Javier: qué pasa
{pause}
Jessi: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question What's wrong??
Javier: Estoy cansado.
Jessi: "I'm tired.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Javier: (Slow) Estoy cansado.
{pause}
Jessi: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Javier: estoy
Jessi: meaning I am.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) estoy
Jessi: Now repeat
Javier: estoy
{Pause}
A: And next
Javier: cansado
meaning tired.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) cansado
A:Now repeat.
Javier: cansado
{Pause}
Jessi: Listen to the speaker say, I'm tired., and then repeat.
Javier: Estoy cansado.
{pause}
Jessi: To expand on the pattern, replace tired with sad.
Javier: triste
Jessi: sad
Javier: (slow) triste (regular) triste
Jessi: Listen to the phrase again, this time with sad
Javier: Estoy triste.
Jessi: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace tired. Say I'm sad.
{pause}
Javier: Estoy triste.
Jessi: To use a different phrase, replace sad with angry.
Javier: enfadado
Jessi: angry
Javier: (slow) enfadado (regular) enfadado
Jessi: Listen to the phrase again, this time with angry
Javier: Estoy enfadado.
Jessi: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the {lang} for sad. Say I'm angry.
{pause}
Javier: Estoy enfadado.
Jessi: To expand on the pattern, replace angry with bored.
Javier: aburrido
Jessi: bored
Javier: (slow) aburrido (regular) aburrido
Jessi: Listen to the phrase again, this time with bored
Javier: Estoy aburrido.
Jessi: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the {lang} for angry. Say I'm bored.
{pause}
Javier: Estoy aburrido.
Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting Spain and someone asks you what's wrong. You want to answer I'm tired.. Respond to the question.
Javier: ¿Qué pasa? (five seconds) Estoy cansado.
Jessi: Now you want to say I'm sad. Respond to the question.
Javier: ¿Qué pasa? (five seconds) Estoy triste.
Jessi: You want to say I'm angry.. . Answer the speaker's question.
Javier: ¿Qué pasa? (five seconds) Estoy enfadado.
Jessi: Imagine you're bored. Respond to the question.
Javier: ¿Qué pasa? (five seconds) Estoy aburrido.
Jessi: Now you want to ask someone what's wrong. Ask the question
(5 seconds)
Javier: ¿Qué pasa?
{pause}
Jessi: This is the end of Lesson 19
