Friday Treat – green, pink, and yellow

The Friday Treat is an “easy” Vine in with minimal or no dialogue, that you can understand and enjoy without an explanation.  

Today’s Friday Treat is from our friend Daniel El Travieso (who was also featured on Wednesday, September 10).

He’s pretending to be an English teacher.  He says to his student,

Pepito, hazme una oración con “green,” “pink,” and “yellow.”

(Pepito, make me a sentence with “green,” “pink,” and “yellow.”)

Notice that word haz again – the command form of hacer – to do/to make.  He says “hazme” pretty fast and with his Puerto Rican accent it sounds like there is no “z” in the middle…but even if he doesn’t pronounce it, it’s there 🙂

And here is your Weekly Review from Monday and Wednesday lessons this week.  Try saying the Spanish words out loud to yourself.
