Things to do
Please note: There is a short delay when playing the audio clips.
Do you get pocket money? In Spain it's called la paga.
If you want to spend it, you need to be able to understand how much things cost.
The currency in Spain is called the euro - el euro. That's the same as in many other European countries like France and Germany.
la paga - pocket money
el euro - the euro
¿Cuánto es? - How much is it?
(Cuesta) un euro. - (It costs) one euro.
What might you buy? Perhaps there's something on this list you might like:
un DVD - a DVD
Did you notice that DVD doesn't sound as you might expect?
un balón - a football
un peluche - a soft toy
una muñeca - a doll
una consola - a games console
If you want to tell someone which one you like or don't like, the words ése and ésa, meaning 'that one' are helpful.
So, if you point to a MASCULINE noun like un balón (a ball), you say:
ése - that one (masculine)
¡No me gusta ése! - I don't like that one!
But if it's a FEMININE noun like una consola (a games console), you say:
ésa - that one (feminine)
¡Me encanta ésa! - I love that one!
¡No me gusta nada ésa! - I don't like one at all!
