Let’s start by learning some basic professions in Spanish. Of course, this is not an exhaustive list and you may need to look up how to say your profession. Some can be pretty complicated!
For example, I have to say “Ingeniero de sistemas” (which means systems engineer) — not the easiest thing to say, and I still confuse it sometimes.
Let’s keep it simple for now. Keep in mind that we are giving masculine forms to all of the professions. We’ll explain how to make the relevant professions feminine in a later episode (some don’t have feminine forms).
After hearing the word for a profession in Spanish, add the following and repeat out loud.
Example: Doctor -> Soy Un Doctor
If the word ends in an “o” but you are a female change it to an “a”. If the word ends in a consonant, then add an “a” to the end to make it feminine.
The “un” before the profession would also change to “una” for females.
Example: Maestro -> Soy una Maestra
Another Example: Consultor -> Soy una consultora
Let’s get started!
