One thing I like a lot about Spanish is the expression for certain human conditions. In English, we say, “I’m sleepy.” Or, “I’m hungry.” I will need to get used to using the Spanish verb tener, to have. Instead of I’m hungry, I would think, “I have hunger.” And I would say:
Or if the young miss has been up late studying for her final exams, instead of “My daughter is sleepy,” it would be “My daughter has sleepiness.” I would say:
Mi hija tiene sueño.
It makes more sense to me for people to say they “have” these conditions, rather than to say they are these conditions.
