Reading Comprehension in Basic Spanish.


Introduction: We have scoured the internet for the most interesting facts we could find. The intention is to give you and incentive to read in Spanish and keep you entertained. If you are interested in a topic copy and paste the Spanish into google and you will find all sorts of interesting articles about these subjects.

When you are learning a language you should imagine that you have a monitor sitting on your shoulder. The monitor should be noticing things and whispering things into your ear.

For Example:
In English we can use a plural to refer to an entire class of things (meaning all of them) . EG. Babies, bees, cats etc.

It is the same in Spanish but we use the definite article before the noun. EG Los bebés, Las abejas , Los gatos etc.

Note: Las vidas de los negros son importantes = Black lives matter.
You could also say: Las vidas de los negros importan
