Between September 15th and October 15th, we are celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month, and to cherish this wonderful event, as ShowMe of The Month, we are featuring a Spanish language lesson by Sr. Crowell.

Sr Crowell is a teacher at Kirkwood in the Kirkwood School District, and he has been teaching Spanish for over three years.

In his lesson titled “Grammar Tip: Making Comparisons in Spanish,” Sr Crowell gives his students extra tips on how to make a correct comparison in Spanish.

He provides students with a variety of words, and rules that are essentials to make a comparison in Spanish. Sr Crowell points out grammar patterns (tan + adj. + como) and explains where to place compared adjectives. He shows students many examples, translates and explains them.

In the second part of the lesson, Sr Crowell presents how to do a negative comparison, by placing ‘no’ in a particular place in the sentence.

Another grammar rule that is explained in the lesson is a comparison done around a noun and not an adjective. This type of comparison, in English, can be translated into ‘as much as’, that goes ‘tanto (a) + noun + como’.

At the end of the video, students receive many exercises where they can practice grammar. Each sentence includes a new vocabulary that students need to learn for the upcoming class.
