¿What are you doing during the rainy season? Part 2

Spanish Sucks by OsOBSERVING THE ENDINGS,  ANALYZING THE BOXES,  LEARNING THE VERBS,  MEMORIZING THE WORDS…

I hope you are doing those things. Otherwise you are not taking advantage of these articles in your free time… But I am not here to judge you, I am here to help you 😉

Let’s observe the endings together:

-AR verbs

O A
AMOS AN

  -ER verbs

O E
EMOS EN

-IR verbs

O E
IMOS EN

 

What do you observe?

I observe a pattern, don’t you?

Let’s analyze the boxes together:

-AR verbs

O A
AMOS AN

 -ER verbs

O E
EMOS EN

-IR verbs

O E
IMOS EN

 What do you analyze?

I analyze the boxes and realize that some boxes have the same endings.  You see that?

Let’s learn the verbs together:

HablAR = TO speak / talk

ComER = TO eat

VivIR = TO live

SER = TO be #1

 EstAR = TO be #2

TenER = TO have #1

HacER = TO make & TO do

 IR = TO go

PodER = Can

LlamARse = TO call oneself (Reflexive)

 GustAR = TO like (TO please)

HabER = TO have #2

How do you learn?

I learn the verbs using memory space repetition and flashcards.  You?
