Spanish - His face is rough

We've learned that in Spanish:
I am happy is Estoy feliz,
You are sad is Estás triste,
He is angry is Él está enojado,
They are excited is Ellos estan emocionados,
We are surprised is Estamos sorprendido,
This house is big is Esta casa es grande,
The chair is small is La silla es pequeña,
My drink is cold is Mi bebida es fría,
Your food is hot is Tu comida está caliente,
Their car is tall is Su coche es alto,
Our table is short is Nuestra mesa es bajo and
Her hands are soft is Sus manos son suaves

Let's learn more about the things we see every day.

To say His face is rough you would say Su cara es áspera

We can break it up into four words:
His - Su - sounds like soo /?/
face - cara - sounds like kah-dah /?/
is - es - sounds like ay-ss /?/
rough - áspera - sounds like ah-spay-dah /?/

All together His face is rough sounds like soo kah-dah ay-ss ah-spay-dah.
