Cuando Es Tu Cumpleaos?: Learn Your Months and Dates In Spanish!

​Many of us have sung that catchy tune ¡Feliz Cumpleaños! (Happy Birthday!) at one point or another, but how many of us actually know how to ask a teacher, friend, or family member their birthday in spanish? With this lesson, you can learn how!

First, let's talk about los meses, or the months. In Spanish speaking countries, many of the months sound the same as they do in english, actually. A major difference is that, when writing the months out, they are not capitalized as they are in english.

Let’s go over a few Spanish pronunciation rules:
- v’s sound like b’s
- e’s sound like a’s
- a’s sound like “ah”
- j’s soundlike h’s
       - i’s sound like e’s
       - d’s sound like “th”
See the quizlet flashcards below to practice these letter pronunciations!

Now, let's go through the months and their pronunciations:
Note: Whenever there’s an ‘r’ in any of the months (in spanish, only), slightly roll it. Not a whole lot, but just a little- a little latino pizazz. Check the youtube video at the end of the lesson if you can’t roll your r’s.
- The syllables that are in all caps are the ones that have emphasis on them, notice that!

  1. enero = January - pronounced: en-EH-roh
  2. febrero = February - pronounced: feb-REH-oh
  3. marzo = March - pronounced: MART-soh
  4. abril = April - pronounced: ah-BRILL
  5. mayo = May - pronounced: MY-oh (not like the stuff you might put on a sandwich! MY not MAY)
  6. junio = June - pronounced: WHO-nee-oh
  7. julio = July - pronounced: WHO-lee-oh
  8. agosto = August - pronounced: ah-GHOST-oh (¡Cuidado! Careful! Don’t say ah-gust-oh, say ah-ghost-oh)
  9. septiembre = September - pronounced: sept-tee-EM-bray
  10. octubre = October - pronounced: ock-TOO-bray
  11. noviembre = November - pronounced: no-bee-EM-bray
  12. diciembre = December - pronounced: dee-cee-EM-bray

DRILL YOURSELF! Cover the English translation with your hand and practice the spanish one. Say what month it is in english and check to see if you got it. Do it until you can get all 12 twice.


Next, let’s go through the numbers. For the purpose of this lesson, I’ll only go through days 1-31 and how to say them in spanish.

  1. primero (pree-MEH-roh)
  2. segundo (seh-GOON-tho)
  3. tercero (tear-SARE-oh)
  4. cuatro (KWAH-troh)
  5. cinco (SEEN-koh)
  6. seis (sehs)
  7. siete (see-EH-teh)
  8. ocho (OH-cho)
  9. nueve (nu-EH-beh)
  10. diez (THEE-ess)
  11. once (OHN-ceh)
  12. doce (THO-ceh)
  13. trece (TREH-ceh)
  14. catorce (kah-TOR-ceh)
  15. quince (KEEN-ceh)
  16. dieciseis (thee-ess-ee-SEHS)
  17. diecisiete (thee-ess-ee-see-EH-teh)
  18. dieciocho (thee-ess-ee-OH-cho)
  19. diecinueve (thee-ess-ee-nu-EH-beh)
  20. veinte (BAIN-teh)
  21. veintiuno (BAIN-tee-u-noh)

Hey! Did you notice how in 21, there are essentially two numbers there? You can see both veinte and uno, right? Well, the spanish word for ‘and’ is simply ‘y’. To make things simpler, the good ol language makers decided to put all three words together, turning the ‘y’ into an ‘i’ for convenience. Think of it this way: veinte+y+uno= veintiuno. Apply this to numbers 21-29. What would 22 be? How about 24? 27?

    30. treinta (TRAIN-tah)
    31. treintaiuno (TRAIN-tay-u-noh)


Alrighty! Now, you’ve got the months and the days. You’re ready right??
Wrong. You need the basic question! How do we actually say “When is your birthday?”

Simple! You know that ¡Feliz Cumpleaños! means “Happy Birthday”, right?
Cumpleaños = birthday. Check.
When = Cuando. Check.
Is = Es. Check.
Tu = You/Your. Check

Let’s put it together: Cuando (when) es (is) tu (your) cumpleaños (birthday)
¿Cuando es tu cumpleaños?

Now, you know how to ask your friends their birthday in Spanish!
But, how do you answer this question when asked?

Also very simple!
You know your months, you know your days. The Spanish word for ‘of’ is ‘de’- add the three together!
seis de noviembre.

You’re all set!

The router sends signals to all of the internet connected devices such as computers, printers, game systems,and televisions. For people that have ISP/home network, I would tell them that they need to be careful about what they put online. They should research the good things to post, and never put something online that you would as in person, because it will never go away.

Por Favor en Gracias

                                                 Por Favor en Gracias

                                                  Common Courtesy Phrases

     

      Phrases like “Please” and “Thank you” have been taught to us since we were small children. They are commonly used in everyday life and project a sense of respect and courtesy among people. Irregardless of what some might think, common courtesy is what will get you further in life, while also leaving a good impression!

      “Thank you”. We've heard and have said it ourselves. Now how do we say it in the Spanish language? There are many ways, but a short, and common way to say it is “Gracias.”. For example, if someone holds the door for you, you'd reply with “Gracias.”. “Gracias” is only one of the many ways to express gratitude in the Spanish language.

     Ever accidentally bumped into someone or tried getting their attention? These situations usually start with someone saying “Excuse me”. In English, there aren't many ways in which you can say it. This is where the complex language of Spanish comes in! There are multiple ways in which “excuse me” can be said in Spanish. And each of them have different feelings/meanings behind them.

      We've all wanted something so bad, that we've practically begged before. Or, because it is polite to your partner, you say “Please” when asking for something or someone. In spanish, “please” is said as “Por favor”. This term is always needed when wanting something. And prevents you from sounding rude. It is a less demanding word and shows your proper etiquette skills.

In order to know proper etiquette in Spanish, you will need to know:

The three ways to say "Thank You"

The three ways to say "You're welcome" and the differences between the usages.

And how to say "Please"

Bonitatibus, Claudia, Lucidchart Home Network

The internet service provider is Verizon. This connects the phone wire which connects to the modem.This is connected to the router. The router sends signals to all of the electronic devices such as computers, printers, game systems,and televisions.
I always thought that it was really interesting how the router can send out signals to the electronic devices. I learned how the firewalls work and what they can block the searches from beng delivered and how all of this can take place in a matter of seconds, yet we still complain about how long it takes for a search to go through. 
I would tell them about how the how the router communicates with all the devices and about how everything communicates with something else, kind of like a domino affect.

"A a Z" The Spanish Alfabeto

No language can exist without some form of the alphabet and spanish is no exception. Not only is the alphabet essential for spelling but pronunciation as well. 

In order to properly use the spanish alphabet you must know
-pronunciation
-how to differentiate between letters
-phonetics

Here is  chart of all the letters and their correct pronunciations


A (ah)B (beh)C (seh)D (deh)E (eh)
F (efeh)G (hey)H (acheh)I (eeeeeeee)J (hota)
K (kah)L (eleh)M (emeh)N (eneh)*Ñ (enyeh)
O (o)P (peh)Q (cooo)R (ereh)S (eseh)
T (teh)U (oooo)V (beh)W (doble beh)X (equis)
Y (eeegriega)Z (seta)
*There is the letter ñ in the spanish alphabet and not the english. This is the only different letter so be careful.


Here is a helpful game to assist you in learning the pronunciation of the alphabet





Phonetic Rules

-H’s are always silent

-2 l’s together are pronounced as an english y

-2 r’s together are to be rolled

-Ay sounds the same as i

-Ge sounds like he


Here is a video of a child learning how to spell their name. His spanish speaking father is teaching her how to spell in their language.

For our project we wil also be teaching how to ask and tell time. Mainly we will work with numbers and how to say different times. The course will review  different  phrases such as:
¿(A) Qué hora es? - what times is it?
¿(A) Qué hora son? - what times is it?
¿(A) Qué hora tiene? - what times is it?
Es la una - one o'clock
Son las dos, tres, cuatro, . . . - two o'clock, three o'clock, four o'clock , . . .
. . . y cuarto - :15
. . . y media - :30
. . . menos cuatro - :45
. . . menos minutes before the hour
Punto . . . - exactly. . . 

de la mañana - in the morning
de la tarde - in the afternoon
de la noche - at night 

For our movie we will take place in a classroom and a student will constantly ask when class is over and another student will keep reminding him when the class ends.

Olsen, Ava, Lucidchart, Home Network

This is my local area network. There are many electronics that are hooked up to the internet service that comes into the house. The internet comes in from the ISP, which is the internet service provider, and is sent to the modem. The modem send the signal to the router, and the electronics pick up the signal from the router and use the internet.

I learned that the internet is permanent, and anything you post will remain there forever, even though you delete it. I also learned how the local area network functions and what the ISP stands for (Internet Service Provider.) It was very interesting to understand how the network works, and learn about how everything is connected.

For people that need to know something about having an ISP/home network, I would tell them that they need to be careful about what they put online. That being said, I could say that they should definitely read a lot about it and ask a lot of people for advice if they need help because it's a lot of information to absorb the first time you read about it. I think they should definitely be educated in it before they get an ISP or home network.
