this is my Spanish assignment: Write a letter to a friend in Spanish in which you describe your daily routine from morning to night. Include the following information in your description:
1. what you do in the morning before school and when you do each activity
2. how you feel about your morning routine
3. what you do in the evening and at night and at what time you do each activity
i have written my routine in English, but i will need help putting it in Spanish, here's what i have so far:
In the morning I wake up at 8:30 a.m. The first thing I do is brush my teeth and comb my hair. Then I go down and eat breakfast. By 9:00 a.m., I start my schooling (home). The first thing I work on is Trigonometry. Then i do english, American History, Physics, Fine Arts, and Spanish. From 12:00 - 4:00 I go to school to teach other homeschooling kids. At 4:00 p.m. me and my brother go out to play tennis. I eat dinner at 7:00 p.m. My family goes to bed at 10:00 p.m.
if anyone can give me tips or help on how to get started in spanish, or any help at all, that would be great
First of all, writing it in English and then trying to translate it literally (word for word) in Spanish is NOT the way to go. Try to write as much as you can in Spanish , using the vocabulary and structures (grammar) you have mastered.
Begin with "In the morning..." because hopefully that will not cause you any difficulty. Do what you can do and supply the English where you can not say it in Spanish. After you DO something, we can HELP you.
English would be capitalized and trig, physics, history, fine arts would not.
You say you "go to school"... is this at another place or in the same place?
It would be my brother and I go out to play tennis.
You do not include how your feel about your morning routine.
You do not do anything at night except eat supper? No TV, no homework, no getting together with friends?
"go to school", yes i go to another place (private school) to teach other homeschooling students
for "how do you feel about your morning routine", can i say its busy, or its tiring, or difficult or something like that?
i will also include, that i go on the computer, in the night. and talk on the phone
i'm starting on a draft, i'm going to try to write as much as i can, then i'll post what i have
Just use google translation it works really great.
