    Im currently attempting to write a spanish GCSE essay. In this essay, I need to include phrases on 'what I did on holiday', 'what I normally do on holiday' and 'what I plan to do on holiday. I'm struggling to write this and would love some help, things such as phrases or words would be much appreciated.

    Hi there! I happen to be Spanish, and also a Spanish A-Level student, so I think I can help you, heehee ! ^^
    Still, because I didn´t do Spanish GCSE I don´t really know how your essay needs to be... Could you be a bit more specific with what you want to know? I can help you translate anything you need. ♥

    I need to include phrases like:
    I stayed at the hotel for two weeks
    I traveled by plane/bus/car
    I visited Barcelona
    I sunbathed for most of the holiday
    Spain is pretty compared to England
    The plane ride was long
    My mum thought the journey was fun
    I stayed in a hotel in Pineda
    It has a gym
    The best part was the food
    The worst part was the entertainment
    My room was big and spacious

    I'm sorry the list is long, I'm just so lost as to where to start or as to what to write <3

    I stayed at the hotel for two weeks----- Me quedé en el hotel dos semanas.I traveled by plane/bus/car
    ----- Viajé en avión. / Viajé en autobús. / Viajé en coche.
    Or to avoid repeating the same sentence all the time, you could say "Fui en avión/autobús/coche.
    I visited Barcelona---- Visité Barcelona.I sunbathed for most of the holiday----- Translating this one directly into Spanish would sound really weird, so I suggest you write "Tomé mucho el sol" which translates into "I sunbathed a lot" and sounds a lot better.Spain is pretty compared to England
    ----- Comparado a Inglaterra, España es un país muy bonito.
    The plane ride was long
    ----- El viaje en avión fue muy largo.
    My mum thought the journey was fun----- El viaje le pareció muy divertido a mi madre. This sentence sounds a bit too complex... I would rather say something like "a mi madre le gustó mucho el viaje" (my mum really liked the journey.)I stayed in a hotel in Pineda----- Me quedé en un hotel en Pineda.It has a gym
    ----- Tenía un gimnasio.
    The best part was the food
    ----- Lo mejor fue la comida.The worst part was the entertainment
    ----- Lo que menos me gustó fue el entretenimiento.
    My room was big and spacious
    ------ Mi habitación era grande y espaciosa.

    That's it for those translations! Do you need help with anything else? ^^

    Some useful phrases I think helped me at GCSE
    I stay at the hotel for two weeks - Me quedo en el hotel por dos semanas.
    I will stay at the hotel for two weeks - Me quedaré en el hotel por dos semanas.

    I will visit Barcelona - Visitaré Barcelona
    I enjoy visiting landmarks - Disfruto visitar los monumentos.
    I love to sunbathe but I don't like getting sunburn - Me encanta tomar el sol, pero no me gusta sufrir una quemadura del sol.
    My hotel has so many facilities - Mi hotel tiene tantas facilidades.

    If you go onto the website spanishdict.com, and type in the verb you want, it has whole conjugation tables, and a whole bunch of other stuff, it's so useful It has an app as well x
