Tuesday 16th October 2018 – Day 16 of Blogtober

Hola a todos,

We’re at martes again!? It’s that time again for your weekly dose of Español, courtesy of Diary of a Spanglish Girl! This week, we’re getting into the Autumn mood and talking Autumnal Vocab.

Autumnal Vocabulary

Autumnal Colours : Los colores de otoño

Autumn wouldn’t be the same without the colours that we don’t get here in Spain. But, it’s nice to cover them anyway!

Rojo – Red
Naranja – Orange
Amarillo – Yellow
Marrón – Brown
Ámbar – Amber
Bermellón – Maroon

NatureLa naturaleza

Now, we have a few pino’s (pine trees) in our garden so we’ve started finding the odd piña (no, not pineapples!) on the floor. I’m also keen to start smelling the burning of the castañas down in the old town soon. So, let’s talk about nature!

El campo – The countryside
Un árbol – A Tree
Una hoja – Leaf
Las ramas – Sticks
El follaje – Foliage
El barro – Mud
Las castañas – Chestnuts
Una piña – Pine cone

Autumn clothing – Ropa de otoño

We’re lucky to have an all year round summer sun, but you’ll get climatised and definitely want to wrap up warm if you’re here for a long time!

Un suéter – Sweater/Jumper
El pantalón – Trousers/Pants
Una chaqueta – Jacket
Un abrigo – Coat
Las botas – Boots
Una bufanda – Scarf
Un sombrero – Hat

5) FestivalsFiestas

The festivals are one of the best parts of Autumn. If you’re looking for bonfire night, but unfortunately it doesn’t exist here! So sorry, no firework displays or sparklers around here in November, but what you will have are:

Halloween – Halloween
El Día de Todos los Santos – All Saints’ Day
La Acción de Gracias – Thanksgiving
Fiesta Nacional de España – Spain National Day
