January Q and A Video Number 2

Welcome to the second of our two January 2019 Q and A videos! (The first one is here).

Below you will find all of the language notes and links for the video…

Question from James:

Como se dice “I’m getting rusty in something” in Spanish?

Answer:

Mi español está un poco oxidado – My Spanish is a bit rusty
Estoy un poco oxidado con la guitarra – I’m getting a bit rusty on the guitar

Question from Steve:

How do you train yourself to think in Spanish? I have lived in Madrid for over four years, and I still find myself translating at times, and this really slows me down. So when I am at a dinner party with lots of people shouting at the same time, I can never keep up and feel totally unable to join in the conversation. Thanks in advance for any advice you may have!

Answer:

It took Ben about 5 years to get over this hurdle and to be able to participate actively at loud dinner parties.

Actively try to think in Spanish and keep immersing yourself  in Spanish listening, via films, tv, podcasts, radio etc – fill your life with more Spanish than English.

Question from Ann:

I work in a school with a few English language learners whose first language is Spanish. I know there is another colloquial way to say “it’s your turn” besides “Es su turno.” It’s something like “le toca a ti” but is that grammatically correct?

Answer:

Te toca a ti (informal) / le toca a usted (formal, usted form in Spain) – but in a class the first would be more natural, in Spain at least.

Question part 2:

And, incidentally, do you have any suggested children’s songs that would be well known to Spanish-speaking children.

Answer:

For small kids… Al corro de la patata, Susanita tiene un ratón, El barquito chiquitito, Debajo de un botón. Or search in Youtube for “canciones de niños”.

Question from Anthea:

I have a question about the different ways of saying: I’d like to do this – tengo ganas de hacer esto – me gustaría hacer esto, I’d be pleased to do this – me alegra, me apetece, me encanta, estaría feliz … I know all these phrases exist but I don’t have much sense of the nuance of each, and sometimes wonder if I sound too eager, too formal … I wonder if you could put these various phrases in some order of intensity, or order of politeness, so I could use the right ones in the right context.

Answer:

First of all, the word nuance – in Spanish we say “matiz”, a lovely word.

“Me alegra” doesn’t work in this context, it’s more when you are happy about something, e.g. Me alegra mucho que te hayan dado el trabajo – I’m really happy they’ve given you the job.

Tengo ganas de ir al cine – I feel like going to the cinema
Me gustaría ir al cine – I’d like to go to the cinema
Me apetece ir al cine – I feel like going to the cinema

Estaría feliz de ir al cine – I wouldn’t mind going to the cinema, that would be OK

Me encanta ir al cine – I love going to the cinema (in general)
Me encantaría ir al cine – I’d love to go to the cinema

Question part 2:

Finally what’s the best way to say I’m looking forward to this?

Answer:

See our video on “Expressing enthusiasm and excitement in Spanish

Question from Gill from New Zealand:

Can you suggest some good phrases for talking about your health, please. In English we have phrases like ‘under the weather’, ‘feeling lousy’, ‘a box of birds’ for feeling great (this might be a New Zealandism, I’m not sure.) Are there some great Spanish phrases you can suggest?

Answer:

Feeling bad…

Estoy pachucho/a – I feel a bit under the weather (not too ill)
No estoy muy católico/a – I’m not feeling great
Estoy hecho un trapo/estoy fatal – I’m felling really terrible

Feeling good…

Estoy pletórico – I’m really full of energy (Origin: Plétora, which means: ‘Exceso de sangre en el cuerpo’, or an abundance of something –  like plethora in English).
Estoy en plena forma – I’m feeling on top of the world
Estoy a tope – I’m really energetic, very active, doing lots of things at the moment

Colectivos sociales realizan una marcha senderista este sábado para reivindicar a Sierra Bermeja

https://www.20minutos.es/noticia/3575521/0/colectivos-sociales-realizan-marcha-senderista-este-sabado-para-reivindicar-sierra-bermeja/

EUROPA PRESS

  • Colectivos sociales, con el apoyo de los ayuntamientos de los municipios malagueños de Estepona, Casares, Genalguacil, Jubrique, Alpandeire y Manilva, realizarán este próximo sábado, 2 de marzo, una marcha senderista para reivindicar la protección de Sierra Bermeja dentro del futuro Parque Nacional.

Colectivos sociales realizan una marcha senderista este sábado para reivindicar

La ruta partirá del puerto de Peñas Blancas a las 10.00 horas y discurrirá durante 4,5 kilómetros hasta el refugio de Los Reales de Sierra Bermeja, donde finalizará tras leer un manifiesto reivindicativo, según han explicado desde la Plataforma Sierra Bermeja Parque Nacional a través de un comunicado.

Los convocantes afirman que sin Sierra Bermeja no existiría el Parque Nacional, “pues el expediente ha necesitado integrar 10.000 hectáreas del macizo de peridotitas, para llegar a las 23.000 hectáreas propuestas como Parque Nacional”.

Han añadido, además, que “incluso así, solo se ha protegido un tercio del territorio de Sierra Bermeja, quedando fuera una parte contigua significativamente mayor, que además es mejor representación de los afloramientos de peridotitas y sus singulares ecosistemas, y que alberga el único bosque de pinsapos existente en el mundo sobre peridotitas”.

Al respecto, han incidido en que la parte excluida de Sierra Bermeja, aun siendo colindante, ni siquiera ha sido incluida como Zona Periférica de Protección del Parque Nacional.

Por ello, los colectivos que respaldan la marcha demandan la protección del territorio excluido de Sierra Bermeja dentro del futuro Parque Nacional, al menos incluyéndola en una fase inicial como Zona Periférica de Protección.

Además, reclaman que en la denominación del Parque Nacional debe figurar el topónimo ‘Sierra Bermeja’, en atención a la imprescindible aportación de esta singular montaña, cuyo territorio abarca diez municipios malagueños, desde río Verde, en Istán, hasta Casares.

Contribuyendo a la causa, un vecino de Alpandeire, Antonio Jiménez Bullón “Pumuki”, acudirá andando y sin apoyo alimenticio desde este municipio malagueño hasta el lugar de partida de la marcha reivindicativa, para continuar después su travesía hasta Estepona, donde está previsto que llegue tras superar unos 56 kilómetros, sobre las 15.00 horas del sábado.

Con este acto pretende manifestar el apoyo que da el Ayuntamiento de Alpandeire a la reivindicación por Sierra Bermeja, y la importancia que la declaración del Parque Nacional tendría para la supervivencia de los pueblos del Valle del Genal.

Entre las asociaciones que apoyan la marcha y que acudirán este sábado están, entre otras, el Grupo Naturalista Sierra Bermeja, Ecologistas en Acción, Cilniana, iluana, Colectivo PhotoEstepona, Club Rotary de Estepona, Grupo de Trabajo Valle del Genal, Plataforma del Voluntariado de Estepona, Grupo micológico Havaral o la Asamblea por la Lucha de Jóvenes y Estudiantes.
