NEW Lesson 4 dialogue assignment


OLD Lesson 4 dialogue assignment

Remember that we’re trying to make these sentences second-nature, to the point that you can say them fluidly without thinking about English. Perhaps a daunting task, but a very important one.

  • “How awesome that you’re here!” “¡Qué bueno que estés aquí!”
  • “Not much; I’ve been a time here, a time there…” “No mucho, he estado un tiempo aquí, un tiempo ahí…”
  • “I got really lonely.” “Estuve muy solo.”
  • “And you? How are you?” “¿Y tú? ¿Cómo estás?”
  • “What do you mean that you’ve been lonely? And Susana? Where is she?” “¿Cómo que has estado solo? ¿Y Susana? ¿Dónde está?”
  • “But anyway, [I hope] that she may be very well, because I am.” “Pero bueno, que esté muy bien, porque yo lo estoy.”
  • “Very well, as always. We are that way: Always we’re doing well.” “Muy bien, como siempre, nosotros somos así, siempre estamos bien…”
  • “I’ll be there. All of us are going to be there: José, Pablo, Esteban… also Julián.” “Estaré ahí, todos vamos a estar ahí: José, Pablo, Esteban… también Julián.”
  • “That night we were both in my house, and from there we left for Juan’s.” “Esa noche estábamos los dos en mi casa, y de ahí nos fuimos para lo de Juan.”
  • “I have to be up-to-date with your life.” “Tengo que estar al día con tu vida.”
