Posted by Señor Jordan on Jul 3, 2012 in -IR, conjugation, grammar, irregular yo form, present, stem-changers, verbs, year 1

Hola. In this lesson, we’ll be talking about verbs that go through a change in the middle. We call them stem-changing verbs.  In this video, we discuss one type, those that change from e-i.  If you remember the verb decir, the other verbs in this video change in a similar way.

Enjoy!

01064 – Present Tense – Decir

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jul 2, 2012 in -IR, conjugation, grammar, irregular yo form, present, stem-changers, verbs, year 1

Here’s another lesson about a verb that changes a little strangely in the present tense.  It’s a common verb though so we should probably go over it.  The verb is decir and it means “to say” or “to tell.”

Enjoy!

¡Hola alumnos cibernéticos!

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.

Ellos quieren a sus gatos. – They love their cats.
(Yo) Te quiero. – I love you.
