02 Preterite – Irregulars – Querer

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jan 9, 2009 in conjugation, grammar, irregular, preterite, verbs |

This video lesson covers another irregular verb in the preteritequerer (to want).  Although this verb normally is used as ‘want’ but when used with people, it can carry the idea of ‘love’ or ‘care about’.
Ex:
Yo quiero un sándwich. I want a sandwich.
Yo quiero a mi madre. I love my mother.

In the preterite it will be ‘wanted’ or ‘loved’, but also carries another meaning that we’ll go over in a later video.

Enjoy!

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions about this video below.
