We are going to cover all you need to know when you need to emphasize an idea in Spanish using -isimo.  First of all we will revise a list of adjectives ending in    -ado.  We will then complete an exercise where students will translate a list of sentences that include these adjectives.  Our grammar section of today's lesson will explain how Spanish speakers use the suffix ‘-ísimo’ when emphasizing the idea carried by an adjective.  We will hear native speakers using this suffix and we will answer questions regarding the recordings.  This class covers key skills in grammar which students will revisit time and time again throughout their Spanish studies, so they can continue building on the knowledge they have learnt in this lesson.
