Today's post is all about questions. We use questions words at the beginning of the question followed by the verb. We do not use auxiliary words in Spanish, so you must learn the verbs and their conjugations depending on time and person.
The video shows some examples in context of how to use questions and their possible answers. They are using the most common ones, but in the exercise below you will find many more with their correspondent equivalent in English. Pay particular attention to those question words that start with a preposition e.g. ¿De dónde? (Where... from?).

The use of superlatives in Spanish does not require to change the adjectives, except for the irregulars "el mejor" and "el peor" ("the best" and "the worst"). Most superlative forms will use "más" (the most) or "menos" (the least). The definite article will depend on the number and gender of the noun used.
In the video they give some examples and it includes a reading where they use the superlative form.

This week, we are going to learn how to express our preferences using the verb "Gustar". This verb usually goes with the subject as an indirect object e.g. I like books -> Me gustan los libros. Today we are only going to use the first person in singular, Yo (Me gusta, me gustan). The verb will also change depending on the object you are referring to, if it is singular or plural.
Watch the video, activate the subtitles in Spanish if necessary, and then test yourself with the exercises below.
