In this episode of Doug Draws Spanish I’ve crafted and sketched out a silly sentence that incorporates three new words that I’m learning: crespo, escualo, and entorpecer.
Here’s the sentence:
El pelo crespo del escualo entorpece su movimiento en el agua.
Can you pick up the meaning of those words from this sketch?
Here are the translations.
crespo: frizzy or curly
entorpecer: to slow down, to obstruct, or to hinder
So the translation of the sentence would be something like:
The shark’s curly hair slows him down in the water.
Not a particularly useful sentence, but I hope the silly sketched scene helps you remember the meaning of those three words!
