Hi could anyone tell me what " usar", "comodo", "velicidad", "dejan" "cojer" mean?
Dictation exercise A1
usar = to use
cómodo = comfortable
velocidad = speed
dejar = to allow
coger = to catch/to take
Hannah's question gets to the heart of my issue with these exercises - there are many words that the novice learner doesn't know but we never get to see an English translation of the sentences we are hearing and writing so even if we may get the spelling correct, we still don't know the meaning of the word.
There is always an introduction to each dictation with a suggestion to look up some words that you will hear during the exercise. For this exercise, this is what the intro shows:
"Some vocabulary you may want to look up before or during this exercise: "estación", "coger", "tardar", "cómodo", "compartimentos", "alta velocidad", and "descansar".
We include in the intro the words that may present some difficulty.
