I can’t speak Spanish. Google can’t help me.

My DS says that he doesn’t know what it says - he needs to hand it in tomorrow.

Help us cheat?

From my rubbish memory you need to match everything si it is masculine or feminine so boys end in o for adjectives and girls in a.

Why can't your DS understand it? presumably he has been learning Spanish so should have some clue.

BobbleyPook Tue 05-Dec-17 20:11:45

Una tortuga

The second pero is correct, pero =but
Perro = dog.
Se llamA fifi

I would suggest your DS:
1) checks agreements
2) checks tenses
3) uses a dictionary & verb tables
(I don't know Spanish enough to help, but DD did it to AS so I picked some bits up along the way)

Start by writing every word he does know the meaning of above its Spanish counterpart. Then look up the words he doesn't know. Then think what it is trying to say.

Most useless post of the day.

Que se llama* in first sentence (it says llamo).

peachypetite Tue 05-Dec-17 20:13:39

The mistakes are mainly agreement of adjectives with masculine / feminine. Tell him to stop being lazy and get a dictionary!

nothingwittyhere Tue 05-Dec-17 20:14:02

Fourth line down should be NO ES, not ES NO

cloudyweewee Tue 05-Dec-17 20:15:49

@Mars100 Why is my post useless? Why is the OP trying to do her son's homework is she knows no Spanish? confused

Ellisandra Tue 05-Dec-17 20:16:18

Why is it a useless post? It's a fair point.
I would be asking the same thing to the son.
Of course if he could just do it he wouldn't have asked. But he should have more idea than his mum what is required and where he could go for help (text book, exercise book, dictionary, online sites)
As a parent, I'd want to understand why he couldn't work it out from resources he has, so I could help him with those knowledge gaps.

TopSecretSquirrel Tue 05-Dec-17 20:16:37

So many replies already! Thank you smile it is mainly just to find the mistakes but it would also help if he understood it! He’s 11 and has only been doing Spanish since September. He struggles with English grammar so this is quite challenging for him...

cloudyweewee Tue 05-Dec-17 20:16:37

Oh, I get it. My post is useless because I'm not doing the OP's son's homework for him.

trilbydoll Tue 05-Dec-17 20:17:15

It's a mish mash of feminine and masculine adjectives. And the second pero is correct.

frieda909 Tue 05-Dec-17 20:17:46

Google translate should definitely get you 90% of the way there! What do you get when you put it in there?

Mars100 Tue 05-Dec-17 20:18:08

cloudy She's asking someone to help. If you don't want to, why post at all?

JimLahey Tue 05-Dec-17 20:18:11

Get DS to check the adjective agreements. Maybe he has some vocab sheets in his book? For reference he could look back on lessons about family,pets and descriptions on appearance and personality.
Encourage him to really use his exercise book to revise previous learning. Then look up words he doesn't know with the dictionary or wordreference.com (free online dictionary)
