Getting started with Spanish 2

7 Using the present tense

Complete the following sentences with the correct form of the verb in brackets. Remember to remove the -ar from the infinitive to get the stem and then add the appropriate ending for that person. Remember the accent for the vosotros form.

If you don’t already know how to type accented and special characters (covered in Getting started with Spanish 1 [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] ), then you should find out now. Make sure you can type all of these characters: á é í ó ú ü ñ ¿ ¡

On most mobile devices, press and hold a letter on the touchscreen keyboard and you get a popup showing all the possible accents. On a Mac computer or most mobile devices, hold down the letter and select an accent from the pop-up. On a PC, hold down the Alt key and type on the numeric keypad a number code. A further option for both PCs and Macs is to set your computer to use a Spanish keyboard layout; on a PC, go to ‘Start’ and open the ‘Control Panel’, then click on ‘Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options’ (‘Region and Language’ then ‘Keyboards and languages’ in Windows 7).
