Learn how to order some meat at the butcher's. In this exercise, you'll practise the position of pronouns with imperatives, past participles as adjectives, and the difference of meaning between some accentuated/non-accentuated words.

Pay attention to the hints!

Some vocabulary you may want to look up before or during this exercise: "cash", "credit card" and "to save (to keep)".

I’ll give you some sentences to translate into Spanish

  • I’ll show you where you make mistakes

-Good afternoon. How can I help you? -Please, give me a kilo of chicken, half a kilo of minced meat and ten sausages. -It's ready. Would you like anything else? -Yes. Also give me a quarter of a kilo of chops. -Here you go. Anything else? -No, nothing else. How much is everything? -It's twenty-five euros. Are you going to pay in cash or with a card? -I'm sorry but I don't have much change I would prefer to pay by credit card. -Very well, please use this POS terminal. Do you want to keep the receipt? -No thanks. Bye!
