¡Hola amigos y amigas!

In Spain and some other Spanish-speaking countries it’s traditionally los Reyes Magos (Baltasar, Melchor and Gaspar), who bring presents to children. This usually happens on the night of el 5 de enero.

In order to practise your Spanish, we thought it would be a good idea for you to write una carta a los Reyes Magos, telling us what you’d like for Christmas this year or what you’d like to do over the holidays. Or perhaps you’re writing a wish-list for your partner or children!

You could simply use the conditional tense of gustar followed by an infinitive or a noun:

  • este año me gustaría una guitarra acústica 
  • me gustaría salir con mis amigos 

Or you could really set yourself a challenge by saying me gustaría que followed by a change of subject and the imperfect subjunctive in the second clause:

  • me gustaría que cocinases más a menudo
  • me gustaría que me trajerais un juego de tablero para que mi familia y yo podamos jugar todos juntos
  • me gustaría que ordenarais vuestras habitaciones

Now it’s over to you!
