Meeting #3: Body Parts and Animals Names

We met on Wednesday 15 in a place to eat waffles for our third meeting.


Acording to the plan proposed we were suppoused to study numbers and colors, but we had already seen them in other sesions, so we decided to start with body parts.

It was fun, we had a really nice time, and we got astonished about how much some words are pretty much alike (or at least they have a very similar pronunciation). And even though it is not so simple to remember the words that are a lot different we enjoyed the time we spent and had fun trying to pronunce the words properly.


We also decided to learn how to say that something hurts or that you feel ill, this is what we learned:

        ENGLISH                                     FRENCH                           SPANISH

  • Sick                                            Malade                            Enfermo
  • Headache                            Mal à la tête               Dolor de cabeza
  • Throw up                                  Vomir                               Vomitar
  • Flu                                                Toux                                    Tos
  • Pain                                       Douleur/mal                        Dolor
  • I have pain in/on …        Je mal à la/ou…       Tengo dolor de/en…

After we finished with the body parts we realised we still had some time free, so we decided to look up for some animal pictures and start saying their names. It was a good oportunity to learn new vocabulary and see some really cute animal pics!!! These are some of the animals’ names we translated:
