Spanish: Polite Expressions/Colors - Presentation
This is a free lesson from our course in Spanish
 
   
This lesson explains Polite Expressions/ Colors.
English: A little bit of courtesy in Spanish (this is probably true in all other languages as well) will take you very far. In this lesson you will learn some of the fundamental elements for asking questions and making requests in an agreeable and civilized way in the Spanish language, just as you respond to the courtesy of others. Responding to an agreeable gesture with gratitude and making a polite greeting when entering a room are some of the most basic skills in any language, and of course Spanish is no exception.
Furthermore, to end this enjoyable lesson you will have the elements to add one more aspect to the descriptions you can form of things in Spanish: color.
From your personal property to important documents like a green card or the yellow stub of a bill, and including the color of your car, in Spanish everything has a special color. (More text below video...)

Spanish: Un poquito de cortesía en español (esto es probablemente cierto de todas las otras lenguas también) te llevará muy lejos. En esta lección aprenderás algunos de los elementos fundamentales para hacer preguntas y solicitudes de manera agradable y civilizada en lengua española, al igual que a responder a la cortesía de otros. Contestar a un gesto agradable con agradecimiento y saludar cortésmente al entrar a una habitación son algunas de las habilidades más básicas en cualquier lengua, y por supuesto no es un una excepción el español.
Además, al terminar esta divertida lección tendrás los elementos para añadir un aspecto más a las descripciones que puedes hacer de las cosas en español: El color.
Desde tus objetos personales, hasta importantes documentos como una tarjeta verde o el talón amarillo de una factura, e incluyendo el color de tu coche, en español todo tiene un color especial.
