Lesson number 7 teaches an important aspect in Catalan which is negation. I'm also including a list of vocabulary about the human body, and finally a conversation about getting to know someone. I will try to give examples using both vocabulary and grammar. That way it will be easy for you to see the words when they are separate and when they are in a sentence. Going through the whole page should take about 30 min. Make sure to read the pronunciation and hear the audio as well. If you have any question about this course, please email me directly at Catalan Classes.
Negation is the opposite of an affirmative statement. So basically any negative expression such as "no", "never" "nothing" etc. Knowing how to use the negation form could help you double the number of expressions you could use in a sentence.
Here are some negation expressions that you might come across or use very often. The table contains 3 columns (English, Catalan, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation. That should help with memorization as well as improving your pronunciation.
|Not yet||encara no|
|No longer||Ja no|
|Should not||no hauria de|
Now we will try to implement some of the negative expressions above into full Catalan sentences. That way you will be able to use the word not only by itself but embedded in a structure.
|Don't worry!||No et preocupis!|
|I cannot remember the word||No me'n recordo de la paraula.|
|I do not speak Japanese||No parlo japonès.|
|I don't know!||No ho sé!|
|I'm not fluent in Italian yet||No parlo l'italià amb fluïdesa.|
