Spanish grammar is not difficult to learn, but at its root are a few more variations than in English grammar. For example, in English, nouns and articles can be plural or singular, but in Spanish they can be plural or singular and feminine or masculine. Our verbs change more, too: in English, we have two conjugations in the present tense (think of the verb to talk: it’s either I/you/we/they talk or she/he/it talks). But in Spanish, we have five conjugations, depending on whether you’re in Latin America or Spain (here, we focus on teaching Latin American Spanish). A lot, right? But don’t worry, the rules are very straightforward. Still, in order to learn Spanish, we need to practice, and practice, so we will remember all of these “new” rules that we don’t have in English.
In this section, we’re going to learn many of these Spanish rules and give different examples for all of them. For some topics, you will also find short videos explaining Spanish grammar tips with one of our online Spanish teachers, Stephanie.
