TALKING ABOUT HOUSEHOLD CHORES IN SPANISH
I normally start this kind of blog with some questions it might be useful to start the conversation with, but I do not think here would help, I am going to give you some tho, that you can apply in several scenarios, as it is regarding frequency.
¿Cuántas veces limpias tu casa al mes?– How many times a month do you clean you house?
¿Con que frecuencia __(tarea del hogar por la que quieres preguntar)_______?-How often do you ____(household chore you want to ask for)_________?
Also sometimes the subject of household chores just comes up, it can be started by asking anything…for example
¿Tienes planes para el fin de semana?– Do you have plans for the weekend?
You might have planned do some house work
¿Vienes al cine esta noches?-Are you coming to the cinema tonight?
You might not go as you better tidy up your flat
See what I mean…it is quite depressing….but sometimes happens! Chores are chores….they need to be done 🙂
Let’s get for the vocabulary
You can add infinitive things after depending on what you want/need to clean…
LIMPIAR el baño–> clean the bathroom
LIMPIAR la casa –>clean the flat
LIMPIAR los cristales –>clean the windows
FREGAR –> to wash , normally we add something behind to make sure what we wash….
FREGAR el suelo –> mop the floor
FREGAR los platos –> wash the dishes….sometimes we say LAVAR los platos too
QUITAR EL POLVO –> to do the dusting
TIRAR/SACAR LA BASURA –> take out the rubbish
BARRER –> sweep
PASAR LA ASPIRADORA –> vacuum
TO SET THE TABLE –> poner la mesa
TO CLEAR THE TABLE –> coger la mesa
HACER LA COLADA –> To do the laundry
PONER LA LAVADORA –>To put the washing machine on
TENDER LA ROPA –> To hand the clothes
SECAR LA ROPA –> to dry off the clothes
PLANCHAR –> to iron
DOBLAR LA ROPA –> fold the clothes
REGAR LAS PLANTAS –> to water the plants
COCINAR –> to cook
COSER –> To sew
HACER LA CAMA –>make the bed
LAVAR EL COCHE –> to wash the car
CORTAR EL CÉSPED –>to mow the lawn
PASERAR AL PERRO–> to walk the dog
HACER LA COMPRA –> to do the shopping
ORDENAR –> tidy up
And again you can add whatever you want to tidy like
ORDENAR el cuarto –>tidy up the room
ORDENAR el salón –>tidy up the living room
CAMBIAR LAS SÁBANAS –>change the sheets
And if you need to repair something, because sometimes it happens too… I think the following verbs will help you
I think with this we have pretty much everything covered…so I am going to leave you to study them….and to practice….some HOMEWORK, leave a comment below and let us know what household is the one you hate to do…por ejemplo…YO ODIO QUITAR EL POLVO…I hate to do the dusting
