Now, really.... what exactly could you learn over here?
OR at least put the phrases you want to practice. I can translate or something...
The most common daily phrases and how you bend the sentences (She, he, you , it , their, our).
Like: How are you?
Whats you're name?
Where do you live?
What do you want to eat for breakfast?
How old are you?
etc, + the answers.
HE = el
She = ella
you = tu
it = eso
them = ellos, ellas
we = nosotros
you (plural) =ustedes
How are you? = Como estas tu?
Fine Thanks you. and you? = Muy bien, gracias. Y tu?
Whats your name? = Cual es tu nombre?
My name is XXX= Mi nombre es XXX
Where do you live? = En que lugar vives?
I live in/near XXX = Yo vivo en/(cerca de) XXX
What is your age? = Que edad tienes?
I am XX years old = Yo tengo XX años.
If you dont remember this basic stuff, you will surely flunk again.
Spanish is harder than english to learn, because every verb conjugated with a pronoun, its a different word, unlike english.
Very well on the basics hakke, but don't forget about accents, one word could have multiple meaning by the way it is accentuated. =/
yep, that's me being lazy. sorry about that
How are you? - ?Como estas? (The verb usually tells who you speaking too, because of the ending). Answer: Muy bien (very fine)
What's you're name? - ?Como te llamas? Answer: Me llamo xxx
Where do you live? - ?Dond? viv?s? Answer: Vivo en xxx
How old are you? - ?Cuantos a?os tienes? Answer: Tengo xxx a?os
I have and still study spanish in two years. Sorry, but it's to complicated to me to explain the basic rules because english is not my first language...
can anybody list all of the question words?
how? = como?
who? = quien?
Why? = porque?
yo soy mexan pero no se esciber en espanol, perdon XD
You are prettier than me - Tu es el m?s bonito que m?. <---- Talking to a guy
You are prettier than me - Tu es la m?s bonita que m?. <---- Talking to a girl
If a word ends with an o, it's means that the word is masculine
If a word ends with an a, it's means that the word is feminine
We have three kind of presense verb that we have to conjugate. Those are verb that ends with -ar, -er and -ir.
Hablar (to speak)
(Yo) hablo - I speak
(t?) hablas - You speak
(?l/Ella/usted) habla - He, she, it speak
(Nosotros/nosotras) hablamos - Vi speak
(Vosotros/vosotras) habla?s - You speak (majority)
(Ellos/ellas/ustedes) hablan - They speak
If you see here, those with , they resemblance the pronoune. You don't have to write/say the pronoune because the verb ending allready telling you who you speak to. The ellos/ellas/ustedes is a bit special because if you're speaking to two or more boys, you use ellos. And if you're speaking to two girls or more, you use ellas. However, if you're speaking to a boy and a gril, you use ellos. Or if there were to many boys and one girl, you still have to use ellos (The same goes with nosotros/nosotras and vosotros/vosotras)
Comprender (To understand)
(Yo) comprendo - I understand
(T?) comprendes - You understand
(?l/ella/usted) comprende - He, she, it understand
(Nosotros/nosotras) compredemos - we understand
(Vosotros/vosotras) comprende?s - You understand (majority)
(Ellos/ellas/ustedes) comprenden - They understand
Vivir - to live
(Yo) vivo - I live
(T?) vives - You live
(?l/ella/usted) vive - He, she, it live
(Nosotros/nosotras) vivimos - We live
(Vosotros/vosotras) viv?s - You live (majority)
(Ellos/ellas/ustedes) viven - They live
If you see a verb thats ends with -ar, -er or -ir, just follow the rules above. But I have to warn you, not evey verb can use the rule above. The rules I wrote is to regular verb. There are also verb that are called unregular verb. Those verb you must lean by rote.
I'm spanish, so I think i can help you. Just post or PM me what you exactly need to know.
Can't you just post the basic gramar rules here at this thread? I also want to see have it works..
me too I want to know basic grammar
Do you say:
Vivo en el sur Espania?
Yo vivo en el sur Espania?
Do you have to use 'yo' when using the "yo" - version of the verb?
It's the same, but it's better to use the first one, it tells you that you really have understand the verb content. You use the pronoune only when you are direct with something for example "Yo quiero beber, ahora!!" (I want to drink, now!!)
What are you talking about?
'Yo' isn't necessary at all. You can just say, "Quiero un beber, rapidmente" menas, I want a drink, now[fast].
I don't know, I only listen to what my teacher said. Maybe you're right and my teacher is wrong??. Or it's just my memory.... I have only study spanish for two years, though.
I agree that you don't have to write/say the letter "Yo".
Thanks dudes (L)
You dont have to because the each conjugated verb changes and it implies the pronoun, so you dont need to write the pronoun.
Well, my version and your teachers versions are right but my version is more normal, I guess you just begun Spanish. In college and in your Senior year, they teach you normal spanish the way they speak in the native countries fast and comprehendable. Although, i still can't understand my landscapers....
