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!

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!
