Tip of the Month - Conjunctions -y- and -e-.


Both "y" and "e" are translated as "and", and they are conjunctions.

But when do I use "y"? And "e"? It is very easy. If the following word begins with "i", you'll use conjunction "e", in order to avoid the repetition of the same sound twice.

Some examples to clarify this:

El gato y el elefante.
(The cat and the elephant).

In this sentence, I have used "y", because the following word (el) doesn't begin with an "i" sound. On the other hand, we have:

Ese niño es alto e inteligente.
(That boy is tall and inteligent)

Here, as the following words starts with "i" ("inteligente"), I've used the preposition "e".

Other examples:

"luz e imagen"
"su cultura e historia"
"Arte e imaginación"



Recommended material:
You can find below some materials / web pages that, from my point of view, can be useful and interesting:


Visual Link Spanish™ - Just click, listen and repeat! Don't just learn Spanish; put it into practice with a unique guided, step-by-step system. I've tested it and I wish I'd had something similar when I studied English!!

Lo más TV Such a funny, intelligent and useful way to learn and enjoy the Spanish language!! It is a web based activity and offers new videos on a weekly basis. By clicking on any of them you'll be taken to a new page were you can chose between dial-up or broadband. The load is fast, and in few seconds you will be watching and listening to the video.
