Bruises, Cuts, Ruptures, Breaks, Tears, and Sprains

I am back with Rory Foster for an interactive lesson focused on discussing injuries in Spanish. This lesson builds upon one of Rory's lessons at Common Ground International. In this lesson, we practice talking about bruises, cuts, ruptures, breaks, tears, and sprains. We will first present a verb, a noun, and an adjective that all share the same root. Then, we will use this vocabulary in phrases as we discuss these different types of injuries. 

A big shout out to La Comunidad's teachers, Nelly from Colombia, Gloria from Mexico, and Daniela from Mexico, for reviewing the phrases in this lesson.

¡Gracias por escuchar! 

  • I wished that there was way less introduction. There was a LOT of repetition, stating that we would work with verbs, nouns and adjectives many times. I was eager for the content to begin.

    • Thank you Diane for this helpful feedback. I agree. I had the same thought when I listened to it AFTER publishing. I will work to keep the intro to the point and less repetitive in the future. Thank you. Oh, and you can use the time stamps, in the Table of Contents above to skip right to the content. I hope this helps.

      Un abrazo,
