02 Por vs. Para

Posted by Señor Jordan on Apr 27, 2011 in grammar, prepositions, year 2

¡Hola!  In this lesson, we talk about some of the key differences between how we use por and para in Spanish.  It’s very confusing since both of these words can be translated as for in English for different things.

Keep in mind that you can often use both words in a sentence, but they might change the meaning slightly.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments about the lesson below.  Enjoy!

So it turns out that there are many aspects about the Spanish language that can be confusing to learners because in English, nothing like this exists.  One such thing that can confuse non-native speakers is the Personal A.  In this video below I explain the Personal A and show how to use it.
