To Study Is Not The Same As To Do Homework.

How to Study Verbs – Study Guide & Example 

Because these classes are meant for you to become conversational, you need to study as much vocabulary as possible and verbs to build up fluency. To study is not the same as to do homework. Study requires of concentration, using tools, going over the homework, figuring out how it works, adding more, going the extra mile analyzing and using some common sense.

I use colors whenever I want you to see something such as similarities and endings. It helps in the study time. Remember. At this point you should still be using the pronouns until you master conjugations. Don’t rush it.

  1. Study your vocabulary. Start with the words and their meaning. Repeat them, visualize them, repeat again this time aloud and listen to yourself.
  2. Connect the words. Start making short sentences with two or three random words. Repeat them, visualize them, repeat again, but this time aloud and listen to yourself
  3. Look at the verbs conjugations sheet. Try practicing some conjugations from the list of regular verbs. Take as much time as you need to practice it until you feel it’s time to move on. The success of the conjugations is repetition and finding common ground. Look at the colors. They mean something. Add any word you may already know in Spanish. Make it fun!

Here is an example of how to study vocabulary.

  • Yo cocino, yo cociné, yo cocinaré, yo estoy cocinando. (present, past, future and progressive – YO)
  • Tú limpias, tú limpiaste, tú limpiarás, tú estás limpiando. (present, past, future and progressive – TÚ)
