 Introduction
Rush Hour Spanish is a musical language program that uses the
power of catchy melodies and dynamic rhythms to introduce you
to basic Spanish expressions and vocabulary for daily life. As
you will quickly discover, Rush Hour Spanish is not a grammar
course. There are no rules to memorize here! The method is simple and direct: Listen, repeat, and if you wish, sing along! The
musical styles are diverse and the language-learning process is
quick and enjoyable.
The Rush Hour Spanish audio shows in this program are
designed to be listened to again and again for your languagelearning pleasure and progress. You will soon find yourself
speaking Spanish without effort, as you follow our lead character
Jon through all the events of his day. And as Jon learns Spanish,
so will you, with the assistance of a very unusual Spanish
teacherand original music that will attune you to the language
so that it sticks with you.
The bilingual Rush Hour approach will ease you into the
language as you hear words and expressions first in English and
then in Spanish. And although reading is not required for the
Rush Hour experience, for additional support, the entire script
and song lyrics are included in this Listeners Guide, along with
Rush Hour vocabulary and phrase sections and a Berlitz minigrammar for quick reference. Plus, whenever youre in the mood
to just sing along and have some fun, play the bonus Music CD.
If you have ever wanted to learn Spanish but thought that you
didnt have the time, Rush Hour is perfect for you!

Articles
Nouns in Spanish are either masculine or feminine. Articles
agree in gender and number with the noun.
1. Definite article (the):
singular
masc. el tren the train
fem. la casa the house
2. Indefinite article (a/an):
masc. un lpiz
fem.

a pencil

una mesa a table

plural
los trenes

the trains

las casas

the houses

unos lpices some pencils


unas mesas

some tables

Nouns
1. Most nouns which end in o are masculine. Those ending in a
are generally feminine.
2. Normally, nouns which end in a vowel add s to form the
plural; nouns ending in a consonant add es.
3. To show possession, use the preposition de (of).
el fin de la fiesta
the end of the party
el principio del* mes
the beginning of the month
las maletas de los viajeros the travelers suitcases
los ojos de las nias
the girls eyes
el cuarto de Roberto

* (del is the contraction of de + el)

Mini-Grammar

Adjectives
1. Adjectives agree with the noun in gender and number. If the
masculine form ends in o, the feminine ends in a. As a rule,
the adjective comes after the noun.
el nio pequeo
the small boy
la nia pequea
the small girl
2. If the masculine form of the adjective ends in e or with a
consonant, the feminine form is generally the same.
el muro/la casa grande
the big wall/house
el mar/la flor azul
the blue sea/flower
3. Most adjectives form their plurals in the same way as nouns.
un carro rojo
a red car
dos carros rojos
two red cars
4. Possessive adjectives agree with the thing possessed.

*Spanish often uses the definite article where a possessive
adjective would be used in English.
Me duele la cabeza.
My head hurts.
5. Comparative and superlative are formed by adding ms (more)
or menos (less), lo ms or lo menos before the adjective.
alto high
ms alto higher
lo ms alto highest

96

*Spanish does not use a subject pronoun for the meaning of it..
The subject is omitted.
El libro es interesante.
Es interesante.

The book is interesting.


Its interesting.

Negatives
Negatives are formed by placing no before the verb.
Es nuevo. Its new.

Questions
In Spanish, questions are often formed by changing the
intonation of your voice. Very often, the personal pronoun is left
out, both in affirmative sentences and in questions.
Hablo espaol.
I speak Spanish.
Habla espaol?
Do you speak Spanish?
Note the double question mark used in Spanish. The same is
true of exclamation marks.
