Weekly Tip & Optional Homework Week of 8/18 for week of 8/25/14

Weekly Tip:

Goal written by PBO student: “Aprender 40 verbos en todas formas que usan más.”

Tip:

Learning 40 of the most used verbs in Spanish is a good idea…although I’m not a fan of memorizing (but that’s me). What I am a huge fan of though, is learning one thing at a time. I think that trying to learn 40 verbs in all it’s forms at once is a bit nuts. If I were the one learning, I would take a verb that I use frequently and learn how to use it properly. For example, I teach, so I would concentrate on the verb “to teach” – “enseñar” and learn how to use it in all of it’s forms.

Por ejemplo:

Ayer enseñé una clase – preterit

Hoy no enseño – present

Si pudiera enseñaría 5 clases – conditional

Antes enseñaba cada jueves – imperfect

And so on and so forth. Once I had one verb down, I would move on to the next verb that is a common one for me.

That’s how I would do it!

 

Here are a few sites that list the top 100 verbs to learn in Spanish:
