Story 3 - episode 15

¿El león come al mono y al pollo por fin?

Episode 15:

Episode 15 with pop-ups:

Additional follow-up questions:
1. When the monkey says, "Vamos a comer", notice that "vamos a" is like saying, "let's [do something]".  With that in mind, what would the following mean?*
  • ¡Vamos a saltar!
  • ¡Vamos a correr!
  • ¡Vamos a vivir en una casa!
  • ¡Vamos a visitar la selva!
  • ¡Vamos a volver!
  • ¡Vamos a tener un mono!
2. If "va" means "he/she goes" and "vamos" means "we go", what do we add on the end of most verbs to mean "we"?

3. So what would the following mean in English then?
  • Saltamos
  • Corremos
  • Vivimos
  • Tenemos
  • Queremos
  • Vamos
  • Volvemos
  • le decimos
  • nos gusta**

*It literally translates to "we go" or "we are going".  In some it might make more since as, "We're going to ___"

** Notice that "nos gusta" (we like) doesn't follow the formula.
