Evidence comprehension of the video by listening the key vocabulary.
This tutorial is designed to give you practice in the key vocabulary words, "se duerme", "está cansado", and "otra vez". If you complete the whole tutorial, you will easily comprehend the short readings that follow this lesson.
se duerme - he/she falls asleep
Note: "duerme" means he/she sleeps. You probably have wondered why some verbs have the word "se". It is difficult to define, but think of it as "oneself, herself, or himself". Here are two others that we have learned:
se llama - he/she calls himself/herself
se despierta - he/she wakes herself/himself
está cansado, está cansada - he is tired, she is tired
otra vez - again (or literally "another time")
