25 - Diálogo - Ir de compras

Diálogo con imperativo + pronombres

Just sharing class dialogues with my SD friends. Leave a vote, answer, or a comment to let me know if this is helpful to you. As long as I know someone wants to see these, I'll keep posting them. You can practice your own dialogue about this subject in the answer section changing it to suit you.

Just a note: I am more interested in understanding conversational Spanish and trying to understand what I hear in everyday life, so some of the forms will be informal. *I am supposed to have a native speaker record this then listen to it 35 times, then practice the conversation at least 10x/day. A lofty goal but helpful. You might want to try it.

  • Thanks Franco, I asked her about the 'la' and she said it had switched to 'lo' because of este modelo in the sentence before. In Chile they do say, 'deslice' for credit card swiping. However, I travel so it's good to know all words used for this. - katydew Sep 12, 2012
  • Thanks for all the help. Your comments are always helpful for me. - katydew Sep 12, 2012
  • You are right about lo. I did not even see modelo. Deslice sounds very literal. I'd bet you no one else ever uses that. - francobollo Sep 12, 2012
  • They say it everytime I slide my card here. Good to know it's not used elsewhere. I'll keep pase tucked away for travel. - katydew Sep 13, 2012
