 COMMON USED SPANISH VERBS WITH VOWEL CHANGES

The diphthong verbs for present tense.

• The diphthong verbs are verbs with irregular conjugation whose vowel of the radical is transformed into diphthong to the three persons of the singular (yo, tú, él, ella, usted) and the third person of the plural (ustedes, ellos, ellas), with “nosotros” there is no change.

• The e becomes ie, as with the verb querer (want) quiero, quieres, quiere, queremos, quieren.

• The o becomes ue, as for example with the verb poder ( to be able ): puedo, puedes, puede, podemos, pueden.

The i becomes ie, as for example with the verb adquirir (to acquire): adquiero, adquieres, adquiere, adquirimos, adquieren.

• The u becomes ue, as for example with the verb jugar (to play): juego, juegas, juega, jugamos, juegan.

The endings for stem-changing verbs are the same as for regular AR,
-ER, and -IR verbs, so you should make sure that you understand those conjugations before working on this lesson.

Here is a table summarizing the main diphthong verbs.

THE MOST COMMON INDIRECT OBJECT VERBS IN SPANISH FOR CONVERSATION

THE MOST COMMON INDIRECT OBJECT VERBS IN SPANISH FOR CONVERSATION

Today I am going to talk to you about Spanish indirect object complements (IOC) in order to continue learning Spanish in the best possible way. As in English indirect objects are very important and are usually used to answer questions to whom or what?

The particularity of the Spanish is that the indirect object complements (le) are slightly different from the direct object complements (lo, la).

As you can see the indirect object complement «le» does not agree with the gender. Namely, whether the personal pronoun él o ella, we will always use «le».

Correct use of IOC in Spanish:

An indirect object is the person or thing for whom an action is being or has been performed, usually indicated in English by the words “to” or “for.”

For instance:

As you can see in the image above, when you use the indirect pronouns le or les, you could be referring to anyone: you, him, her, them

To avoid confusion, I always use a verb + Something to Someone, so if this makes sense I know that this verbs it is an indirect object verb.

I created a list with the most common verbs in Spanish.

THE MOST USEFUL SPANISH REFLEXIVE VERBS FOR CONVERSATION

THE MOST USEFUL SPANISH REFLEXIVE VERBS FOR CONVERSATION

What did you do today?

Did you wake up early?

Did you take a shower?

Did you have fun?

If you take a look there is nothing special about these verbs in English, but guess what? In Spanish these verbs belong to a category called Reflexive Verbs.

But what does Reflexive verbs mean in Spanish? and when to use it?

Check this out!

How to identify a reflexive verb?

All the reflexive verbs are follow for the ending SE in their infinitive form.

SE means «to oneself» and this action is reflected to the person who performs the action.

For example, the verb «levantar» y «levantarse»

The fist one, the action is referred to another person or thing.

Levanto mi computadora- I lift my computer

The second one shows that the action is happening to the self, not to another person or object.

Me levanto muy temprano- I wake up very early

But pay attention, do not try to translate every verb into «oneself», because some verbs also have the pronoun SE but the action does not reflect to itself, it is just the structure of the verb.

For example: sentarse- to sit down

burlarse- to make fun of

Let´s conjugate the reflexive verbs in present tense!

Acostarse– to go to bed

yo           me acuesto

tú           te acuestas

él/ella/usted     se acuesta

nosotros             nos acostamos

vosotros              os acostáis

ellos/ustedes    se acuestan

Now I want to give you the list of reflexive verbs most commonly used!
