Adjectives to Describe Units of Time

cold, cool/fresh, warm/hot, clear, cloudy, sunny, windy, snowy

SPELL IT - A SUNNY DAY!

This activity is designed to include sound files, but they aren't ready!

In Spanish, determining adjectives like "this..." and "several..." come before the noun (just like in English), but descriptive adjectives like "windy" and "sunny" usually come after.

The cursor starts before the noun, and after typing the determining adjective, you have to press the space bar twice to move the cursor behind. Then you can type descriptive adjective.

Also note: since these two-word answers are unusually long, it will only make you re-do the answer once. However, the second time the "next" key will be disabled!

The Verbs Making/Doing and Having with Weather Nouns

Most Spanish verbs have verb-tense forms that correspond well to English in meaning and in use.

This practice will be more challenging, as this correspondence breaks down a bit for these two particular verbs.

To bridge the different ways Spanish and English express the same idea, at times we'll translate the Spanish verb "has" as "there is".

And to fill the gaps in the forms of the English verb "being", we'll use two forms that should exist but don't: "does be" and "did be".

The notes in the app are extensive and can be confusing upon the first read.
