02 Preterite – IR Stem-changers (o-u)

Posted by Señor Jordan on Feb 13, 2009 in conjugation, grammar, ir, preterite, reflexives, stem-changers, verbs, year 2 |

This video lesson covers -ir verbs in the preterite that stem change.

In the present, they change (o-ue) in the yo, , él/ella/ud, ellos/ellas/uds forms.  In the preterite, they do something a little different.   I apologize for it being a little long.  Hope this video is helpful.

Let me know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions about this video below.  Enjoy!

Hello!

First of all, I want to thank you! You have saved my grade in Spanish III and I feel more confident about learning the language now!!

Second…are there any exceptions to this rule?
I put Uds. almurzaron into a test I had and got it wrong…what did I miss? Or is that an exception?

Thank you very much for your time!

His cat slept more than him. In English, we should say, “His cat slept more than HE (slept).
Does this change the translation?
