A subject pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun as the subject of a sentence. For the plural pronouns, if the group referred to is all male, use the masculine ending: nosotros / ellos.

Verb To Be in Spanish
Today we are going to learn the differences between the Spanish Verbs: Ser and Estar. In Spanish, there are two words equivalent to the English verb ‘to be’: ‘ ser ’ and ‘ estar ’. First let’s see the conjugation of the verbs SER and ESTAR in the present Tense: Ser comes from the Latin word ‘esse’ which is the same root word for the English word ‘essence’. Use this verb to express essencial quality or permanent attributes. Estar comes from the Latin word ‘stare’ which is the same root word for the English word ‘state’. You must use this verb to talk about c hangeable state or temporary conditions. 1. Origin / Nationality: Ellos son alemanes (They are G ermans ) 2. Names: Él es Carlos (This is Carlos) 3. Describing a person or a thing: Tú eres alta y delgada (You are tall and thin ) 4. Material: El reloj es de oro (The watch is made of gold ) 5. Possessio
Plural Nouns in Spanish
Today we are going to learn how to make Spanish nouns plural. Just as in English, in Spanish there are nouns that name one thing (singular nouns), and nouns that name more than one thing (plural nouns) To make a singular noun plural, all you need to do is to look at the last letter in the word. Why? Because, Spanish singular to plural are formed by adding specific ends to the nouns. So, in this lesson you will find the basic rules for making nouns plural in Spanish. If the word ends in a vowel (a,e,i,o,u), just add the letter “s” at the end of the word. For nouns that end in these specific stressed vowels: í and ú we may add both “es” or “s” If the word ends in a consonant we must add “es” at the end of the word to make it plural. Words which end in a consonant and have an accent mark on the last syllable in the singular form, will drop the accent in the plural form. Some plural words ma
Spanish Regular Verbs

All Spanish verbs are either “regular” or “irregular.” Many Spanish verbs are completely regular, meaning that they follow a specific pattern of conjugation.

The category is determined by the last two letters of the infinitive: For a review of the subject pronouns, I recommend you to watch my video about this topic. See also: Spanish Subject Pronouns The infinitive is the base form of the verb, such as to speak, to eat, to live, etc. In Spanish, all infinitives end in -ar, -er, or -ir. In Spanish, you conjugate verbs by dropping the infinitive ending (AR,ER,IR) and adding a specific ending for each person to the stem of the verb. In this lesson, we will use three model verbs: hablar (to speak), comer (to eat), and vivir (to live). If the subject is I (yo), conjugate by dropping the en
