You are battling on with Spanish and need to have a quick fix to get your Spanish back on track?
I’ve got the word you need HERE…..IT’S “HAY“
There’s a lot of HAY here! photo credit
” HAY” = THERE’S
(pronunciation : “I”, as in “I” am tired )
(Look back at the title of this post and see if you get the pun?)
So what’s so exciting about this “HAY”?
The great news is it means that HAY is always very, very useful, especially when you’re searching for words you need in Spanish.
Imagine the scenario
There’s… a snake in the garden Hay…una culebra en el jardín
There’s…a fly on the wall Hay …una mosca en la pared
There’s…a hole in my bucket Hay…un agujero en mi cubo
There’s…a beer in the fridge Hay…una cerveza en la nevera
See how USEFUL…HAY can be for you?
HOW CAN YOU USE “HAY” IN EVERYDAY SPANISH CONVERSATION?
I’m looking around my home as I’m writing this post, and I could use HAY to describe what I can see. For example:
Hay una mesa. There’s a table
Hay una televisión. There’s a television
Hay una cocina. There’s a kitchen
Hay una silla There’s a chair
Say these sentences out loud, even though others listening think you are mad!
(Remember pronunciation of HAY: “I”, as in “I” am tired )
LOOK AROUND YOUR HOME AND TELL ME WHAT “THERE IS”
If you need help with making those sentences, leave a comment below and I could help you out
Perhaps you know someone interested in learning Spanish, and about the use of HAY. You could share this post with them and make them happy!
I really hope this helps….
