Welcome to the 10th lesson about verbs in Spanish. We will first learn about the present tense, followed by the past tense, and future tense. We will also analyze some grammar rules, and finally practice how to ask for direction in Spanish.
Verbs are used to express an action (I swim) or a state of being (I am). The present tense in Spanish conveys a situation or event in the present time. Here are some examples:
|I speak English||hablo inglés|
|you speak French||usted habla francés|
|he speaks German||él habla alemán|
|she speaks Italian||ella habla italiano|
|we speak Arabic||nosotro hablamo árabe|
|they speak Chinese||ellos hablan chino|
The past tense in Spanish conveys a situation or event in the past time. Here are some examples:
|I visited France||he visitado francia|
|you visited Italy||usted visitó italia|
|he visited Morocco||él visitó marruecos|
|she visited China||ella visito china|
|we visited Mexico||nosotros visitamos méjico|
|they visited Kenya||ellos visitaron kenia|
The future tense in Spanish conveys a situation or event which is anticipated to happen in the future. Here are some examples:
|I will drink milk||voy a tomar leche|
|you will drink coffee||usted tomará café|
|he will drink tea||él tomará té|
|she will drink water||ella tomará agua|
|we will drink apple juice||nosotros tomaremos zumo de manzana|
|they will drink tea||ellos tomarán té|
