03 Conditional Tense

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jul 24, 2012 in -AR, -ER, -IR, conditional, conjugation, grammar, irregular, regular, verbs, year 3 |

Hola.  In this video lesson, we’ll be tackling one of my favorite tenses: the conditional.  The conditional is generally used to mean “would”.   It is often used when talking about abstract concepts, unlikely things, or the impossible.  It’s formed in a similar way as the future tense.  In this video we’ll be going over the regular verbs as well as the irregular verbs in this tense.

Enjoy!

It should be «los enfermos quieren comerSE a las personas» y «no se cansan de comérSElas».

«Es bueno tener un lugar que puedAs defender con entradas y salidas»What exactly are you trying to say there?
