Welcome to the fourth Spanish lesson about the plural. This time we will learn about the singular form and what it looks like in the plural, followed by grammar rules, finally a list of emergency phrases.
The plural is the form which refers to more than one object or person. For example: I speak two languages the plural here is [languages] because it refers to more than one [language]. The examples below use plurals in different ways and places to demonstrate how they look when converted from their singular form.
|Grammar + Rules|
|I speak one language|
|yo hablo un idioma |
|we speak three languages|
|nosotros hablamos tres idiomas |
|he visits many countries|
[adverb + plural noun]
|él visita muchos países |
|they are happy now|
|ahora (ellos) son felices |
|she has five red shoes|
[adjective + plural noun]
|ella tiene cinco zapatos rojos |
|I want a sandwich without onions|
[preposition + plural noun]
|yo quiero un bocadillo sin cebolla |
The following is a list of examples showing both the singular and plural form. This demonstrates how the plural is used with humans, objects and animals.
Now it's time to practice your Spanish by looking at these phrases which are related to emergencies. Be prepared when traveling abroad, just in case you need help or by offering help to someone else. I recommend writing these expressions down on a notebook before traveling.
|Call the ambulance|
|¡llame a una ambulancia!|
|I need a doctor|
|necesito un doctor|
|Where is the closest pharmacy?|
|¿dónde está la farmacia más cercana?|
|Are you okay?|
|I am sick|
|me siento mal|
|Call the police|
|¡llame a la policía!|
