Ok so I‘ve been taking Spanish for three years and I'm pretty good at it. (Around a 95 average) And knowing a few things will make everything so much easier so here ya go. If something is wrong or doesn’t make sense feel free to message me :)
Knowing Estar and Ser (To be)
Knowing when and where to use these will make your life so much easier. Both have pneumonic devises.
~Ser- TODO (Tends to be more permanent)
T= Time and Place
O= Origin and Nationality
~Estar- PLACE (Tends to be more temporary)
There are three different types of verbs -AR -ER -IR.
When you congugate you change the ending of the verb your using to fit the subject. I woln’t go through the whole chart if you want me to I can do a detailed verison but and example would be ~Yo (correr) corro
Practice congugating, lots of already spanish speaking people come in thinking they’ll know everything but are confused by this in my school.
All verbs except irregular congugate the same way is good to memorize some usfull ones.
