Welcome to Vol. 67 of the Spanish Online Newsletter! Part of the Spanish Learning Blog - your weekly lessons with mp3 files, as well as links to Spanish travel spots and more. We've been hard at work putting up a new instant downloads section this week, and hopefully I'll be able to convince some other language publishers to allow me to digitize their products. Ipod and laptop learning has become quite popular, and we're trying to keep up with the trends! We've also got a new grammar lesson for you this week about Indefinites. Sandrita's recipe for the week is one I've found particularly tasty: Potato Tacos.

Indefinite Adjectives and Pronouns...Unknown Quantities

These words are often adjectives, but can also be pronouns and even adverbs, and are used to identify people or things of indefinite or unknown rather than specific quantities.

Many of these words change gender and quantity, such as the Spanish translation for the word "some".

algún café
algun café
some coffee
alguna mujer
alguna mujer
some woman
algunos regalos
algunos regalos
