02 Preterite – Irregulars – Poder

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jan 9, 2009 in conjugation, grammar, irregular, preterite, verbs, year 2

This video covers another irregular verb in the preterite: poder (to be able, can).  This verb is most popular with my students in such present tense phrases as ‘¿Puedo ir al baño?‘ (Can I go to the bathroom?) o ‘¿Puedo ir a la fuente de agua?‘ (Can I go to the water fountain?).  But of course those aren’t really useful in this video since we’re going over the preterite (a past tense) of poder.

Thanks for watching!  Enjoy!
