There are two different ways to say “to know” in Spanish, “saber” and “conocer”. And there are a bunch of rules regulating when to use each one. But in this simple video, I share a little trick that’ll help you AVOID those rules, and still choose the right word every time.watch the video
As you now know, there are three types of verbs in Spanish: AR, ER and IR. And each type has it’s own conjugation rules–how you change the endings of the words. “Hablar” is to “talk”, but I talk is “hablo”. However, there are also irregular verbs–where not only do you change the ending based on the subject, but there’s a change to the stem too. Lots of the most common verbs in Spanish are irregular and I’m sick of avoiding them in my examples. So today, we’re gonna talk about the first kind: E to IE.watch the video
I went back to Spain recently for the first time in over 10 years. I was chatting with my buddy Manuel, and he said something quickly that sounded like gobbly gook. I had acclimated myself to the Latin American way of talking. There are differences. That’s one of the reasons I didn’t understand Manuel in Spain. And of course, what he was talking about–it didn’t even exist 10 years ago!watch the video
CRAZY! Since I started studying Spanish over 10 years ago, I’ve always told people: “Whenever you don’t know a word in Spanish, just take the English word and Spanishify it!” But over the last couple weeks, as I made the three “Fun with…” videos… I was still shocked by just how many words there are that are essentially the same. Today, I just picked the 10 regular IR verbs I thought would be most helpful to you. Little did I know that 7 out of the 10 would be friends! That’s cool, when a word is the same in Spanish, it sure makes it easier to remember. Duh.watch the video
Trying something new today. I’m a little out of my element here. You’ve heard of a tortilla right? Well, in Spain, they have tortilla too–it’s just totally, 100% DIFFERENT. Not only will you learn a few important words in this video, you’ll also see exactly how I prepare one of my favorite foods from Spain. And I might sing and dance a little at the end too.watch the video
