Here's where I'll be putting my practice for the exercises provided by the Interlingua lessons.

Lection 1


Translate the following to Interlingua:

They play. They write the letter. Ann sits in her chair reading the magazine. Peter is a name. The cat also lives in the house.

Illes joca. Illes scribe le littera. Ann sede in su sedia lege le magazin. Peter es un nomine. Le catto anque habita in le casa.

English Translation:

Good day! Here is a house for a family. I read a magazine. The cat sleeps in the bedroom. Ann loves her brown cat; I also love her brown cat. He listens to the black cat. They live in the house with a brown roof. The chair, the table, and the arm chair are in the living room. The father and the mother, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, listen to the radio; Ann plays with the cat. It, the animal, loves to play in the small garden. The entire family lives in the house. Their friend is named Ben and is in the kitchen.

Spanish Translation:

¡Buenos días! Aquí está una casa para una familia. Leo una revista. El gato duerme en el dormitorio. Ann ama su gato café; yo también ama su gato café. Escucha el gato negro. Viven en la casa con un techo café. La silla, la mesa y el sillón están en el salón. El padre y la madre, Sr. y Sra. Smith, escuchan el radio; Ann juega con su gato. Al animal le gusta jugar en el jardín pequeño. Toda la familia vive en la casa. Su amigo se llama Ben y está en la cocina.

Notes:

• No Oxford comma.
• ‘habitar’ takes ‘in’ after it, but ‘ascoltar’ does not.

Problem words: tecto, ascoltar, littera, sedia, camera
