01 Present Tense – Querer (to want)

Posted by Señor Jordan on Aug 5, 2009 in -ER, conjugation, grammar, present, stem-changers, verbs, year 1 |

Hola.  In this video lesson, we’re going to cover the verb querer (to want).

Notice that in this video I only really discuss the verb meaning ‘to want’ but it could also be used as ‘to love’ with people and pets.

Juan quiere a sus padres. – Juan loves his parents.
Ellos quieren a sus gatos. – They love their cats.
(Yo) Te quiero. – I love you.

Sometimes, though fortunately not often, you put in a short phrase that you don’t translate, and no matter how many ways I try to look it up in the Spanish part of the dictionary, I can’t figure out the meaning. In this video, you say something that sounds phonetically like: “kaytokah” or maybe “taytokah.” Here’s another one: “taycordas,” which you say near the beginning.

Sorry about that…. ¿Te acuerdas? means “do you remember?”

“Te toca” or “es tu turno” mean “it’s your turn”

In the lessons when he is giving us time to practice saying the sentence (he pauses) it would be helpful to leave the sentence up on the graphic. I can’t remember it long enough and he pauses with a black screen above his head.
