Dear Abby

Page 1 of 2
Describe: describe yourself/the person, your relationship, habits, etc. (ser/estar+ adjectives or past participles as adjectives)

Compare: you and him/her, (inequality comparisons: 1 adjectives, 1 nouns, 1 verbs), (inequality: 1 adjectives, 1 nouns, 1 verb); 2 ísimo; 2 superlatives. (10 total)

Use likes and dislikes: Talk about the things you and she/he likes, what you like to do and what he/she likes. (if you do not remember how these work, check the grammatical explanations on that grammar review site available on Blackboard under Course Material).

Use the present perfect: to tell what you have done, what he has done, what has happened in the relationship

Use the subjunctive or the imperative (a command): to ask for help at the end of the letter.

Sign the letter with a fake pen name or pseudonym (like: lonely heart. Desperate lover) to leave your true identity anonymous.

If you look closely, most of the things I am asking you to do overlap or can overlap. For instance: create a comparison using the present perfect, comparison based on adjectives = the contrast of two physical or personality descriptions. Or a comparison based on the things you both like or dislike, or what each of you like or dislike to do.

Hola Dr. Drew,
Tengo dieciocho años de edad y y estoy en mi segundo año de universidad. Voy a la Universidad Northeastern en Boston Massachusetts. Yo soy estatura media y tiene el pelo castaño y ojos marrones. Soy extrovertida y social. Soy agradable y siempre estoy tratando de hacer lo correcto. Nunca pedir demasiado de los demás y pondrá en peligro lo mejor. Estoy feliz y contento con lo que tengo.

Mi novio por otro lado es horrible. Él es grosero, celoso, y engreído. Es alto, tiene el pelo castaño y ojos azules. También es un estudiante en la Universidad McGill y dieciocho años. No se lleva bien con la gente, porque es muy terco. Él nunca dice lo que siente y toda la ira se acumula....
