Spanish verbs

You just have to love the Spanish culture. Today we started learning verbs by playing charades. Some of the verbs the school deems essential in the @Nivel Principiante 1 Unidades de 1-7:-

eructar – to belch
orinar – to urinate
vomitar – to vomit
amar – to love
estornudar – to sneeze

I was given the task to mime eructar and poor Sandra at to mime orinar and construct a sentence using it!!

after much help I constructed the sentence :
yo trago agua cuando nado (I swallowed water when swimming)

Tonight I have 5 A4 pages of verbs to work through before class starts at 1.15pm tomorrow.

  1. They all seem fairly essential to me! of course amar is pretty close to amore which I believe is Italian… but then there are quite a few similarities between Italian and Spanish. Anyone heard from Em recently it's just not the same without her insights into Peruvian life.

  2. I don't know the Spanish for I have a full size JCB parked in my “garden” now a fully fledged building site. Conservatory destructed into a grownup boys meccano set. R is servicing my car. I am soooo lucky. Girls back to Uni at weekend so less people to struggle round all the obstacles in the house.
    Was speaking to accountant who has just come back from Peru who said it was like going back in time 1000 years. Where do I find photos? xc
