In Lesson 4, we will focus on two important grammar topics: verb conjugation and possessive pronouns.
1. Verb Conjugation
Verb conjugation is crucial for constructing meaningful sentences. In Spanish, verbs change their form depending on the subject pronoun and tense. Let’s take a look at the conjugation of the verb “hablar” (to speak) in the present tense:- Yo hablo – I speak- Tú hablas – You speak (informal)- Él/Ella habla – He/She speaks- Nosotros/Nosotras hablamos – We speak- Vosotros/Vosotras habláis – You all speak (informal, Spain)- Ellos/Ellas hablan – They speak
2. Possessive Pronouns
Possessive pronouns indicate ownership or possession. They agree in gender and number with the noun they modify. Here are the possessive pronouns in Spanish:- Mi/Mis – My- Tu/Tus – Your (informal)- Su/Sus – His/Her/Your (formal)- Nuestro/Nuestra/Nuestros/Nuestras – Our- Vuestro/Vuestra/Vuestros/Vuestras – Your (plural, Spain)- Su/Sus – Their/Your (plural, formal)
Now, let’s put our knowledge into practice with some exercises:1. Complete the sentence: “_______ hablan español en casa.” (They speak Spanish at home.)2. Conjugate the verb “comer” (to eat) in the present tense for “nosotros.” (We eat.)
