Exercise 3: Example dialogue[edit]

Synopsis[edit]

In the following scene, Siena, AJ and Cate talk about the upcoming and past seasons. Siena seems to be confused due to the temperature. Notice how the use of the word "el" and "la" change according to the different nouns. Use context clues and root words to help you figure out the words "caliente y confundiste."

Dialogue[edit]

Siena: Esta caliente. ¿Es verano?

AJ: No, todavia no es verano.

Cate: Estamos en la temporada antes de verano.

Siena: O! Estamos en la primavera.

AJ: Te confundiste porque esta mas caliente que el invierno.

Cate: Y también porque las plantas están mas verdes.

Cate: Ya quiero que sea verano.

Siena, AJ, Cate: ¡NO CLASES!
