Learn Spanish with Latin ELE, Latin American podcast to learn Spanish in a fun way.To talk about things we like, we use the verb “gustar”. This verb in Spanish places emphasis on the activity or object that is enjoyed (not the person who likes the action).Let’s have a look at an example to understand this idea. In English the verb “to like” is “egocentric” (it focuses on the subject who performs the action), that is why when you say “I like chocolate” the stress is on “I”. However, Spanish would place emphasis on the object: the “chocolate” becomes the subject in Spanish. And thus we have “me gusta el chocolate” which would literally be “Chocolate is pleasant to me” (or if we want to follow the exact order of Spanish = to me pleasant is chocolate).“Gustar” with singular noun:Me, te, le, etc. + gusta + singular noun = me gusta el chocolate“Gustar” with plural noun:Me, te, le, etc. + gustan + plural noun = me gustan los deportes“Gustar” with verbMe, te, le, etc. + gusta + infinitive verb = me gusta hacer deportesQuestions to ask about hobbies and things people like:¿Cuáles son tus pasatiempos? = What are some of your hobbies?¿Qué cosas te gustan? = What things do you like?Dialogue:Marco: Jessica, ¿cuáles son tus pasatiempos?Jessica: Me gusta pintar y jugar con mis gatos. ¡Es muy divertido! Y a ti, ¿qué cosas te gustan?Marco: Me gustan muchas cosas, me gusta ver películas. También me gustan los deportes, especialmente el fútbol.Jessica: A mí no, el fútbol es aburrido.Marco: También me gusta salir a comer. Me gustan mucho los restaurantes de comida peruana.Jessica: Mmm, a mí también. La comida peruana es deliciosa.___Visit our website: www.latinele.comContact email: latinele@latinele.comSend us a voice message: https://www.speakpipe.com/latineleFollow us on:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/latinele.learnspanish/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/latinelepodcast/Twitter: https://twitter.com/LatinEleYoutube: https://www.youtube.com/latineleSupport us:To support our show, visit https://www.latinele.com/donacionesPatreon: https://www.patreon.com/latinele

Learn Spanish with Latin ELE's Speaking Spanish for Beginners.In this episode, we talk about irregular verbs in Spanish. They are called irregular because, unlike regular verbs, they do not follow the same predictable patterns. That's why the change that applies to these verbs must be learnt by frequent exposure to Spanish. That's why practicing very often is key to mastering irregular verbs. Another additional difficulty is that one verb might be irregular in one tense, but not necessarily in another one. So keep this in mind as you move forward with Spanish. With time you will develop a "sense" as to when one verb just doesn't sound right. That will come with time. Instead of just memorizing long list of irregular verbs, we would advice you to select a few common ones and create meaning sentences, that way your brain can make clear connections with what is being learnt. Examples of some frequent irregular verbs (present tense)Ser (to be, description): yo soy, tú eres. él/ella/usted es, nosotros somos, ustedes son, ellos son. Estar (to be, location): yo estoy, tú estás, él/ella/usted está, nosotros estamos, ustedes están, ellos están. Jugar (to play): yo juego, tú juegas, él/ella/usted juega, nosotros jugamos, ustedes juegan, ellos juegan.Tener (to have): yo tengo, tú tienes, él/ella/usted tiene, nosotros tenemos, ustedes tienen, ellos tienen. Dormir (to sleep): yo duermo, tú duermes, él/ella/usted duerme, nosotros dormimos, ustedes duermen, ellos duermen. _____Visit our website: www.latinele.comContact email: latinele@latinele.comSend us a voice message: https://www.speakpipe.com/latineleFollow us on:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/latinele.learnspanish/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/latinelepodcast/Twitter: https://twitter.com/LatinEleYoutube: https://www.youtube.com/latineleSupport us:To support our show, visit https://www.latinele.com/donacionesPatreon: https://www.patreon.com/latinele
In this episode, you will learn about regular verbs in the present tense. This is important to describe daily activities and engage in your first interactions with native Spanish speakers. In Spanish, there are three endings for verbs: -ar (i.e.:"trabajar), -er (i.e.: "comer"), and -ir (i.e.: "vivir")When you conjugate any regular verbs, you remove the ending -ar, -er, ir and add the conjugation that matches the subject. Here is how regular verbs are conjugated in the present tense. Verb conjugation (ar, er, ir)Trabajar : yo trabajo (I work), tú trabajas (you work, informal), él trabaja (he works), ella trabaja (she works), usted trabaja (you work, formal), nosotros trabajamos (we work, for group of only men, or men and women mixed), nosotras trabajamos (only when in "we" there are only women), ustedes trabajan (you work, plural form), ellos trabajan (they work, only men or group of men and women mixed), ellas trabajan (when in "they" there are only women).So as you can see él/ella/usted have the same conjugation. The same is true for nosotros/nosotras and ellos/ellas. Keep this in mind as this happens with these pronouns in any tense.Aprender: yo aprendo, tú aprendes, él/ella/usted aprende, nosotros(as) aprendemos, ustedes aprenden, ellos(as) aprenden.Vivir: yo vivo, tú vives, él/ella/usted vive, nosotros(as) vivimos, ustedes viven, ellos(as) viven. Verbs used in the practice section (section with the bell, at the end): estudiar, comer, recibir. ________Visit our website: www.latinele.comContact email: latinele@latinele.comSend us a voice message: https://www.speakpipe.com/latineleFollow us on:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/latinele.learnspanish/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/latinelepodcast/Twitter: https://twitter.com/LatinEleYoutube: https://www.youtube.com/latineleSupport us:To support our show, visit https://www.latinele.com/donacionesPatreon: https://www.patreon.com/latinele

In this episode, you will learn how to talk about occupations in Spanish.Questions to ask about occupations:¿Cuál es tu ocupación?¿A qué te dedicas?¿Qué haces? How to reply to this question:Verb ser + ocupation. Ex: Soy doctor. No need to add article “a” (un, una in Spanish) like in English, we don’t say soy un doctor. Another important verb is “trabajar” (to work). Here is the conjugation:Yo trabajoTú trabajasÉl trabajaElla trabajaIf you want to ask “where do you work?” You ask “¿dónde trabajas?”. In this question, the pronoun “tú” is implicit by  the conjugation of the verb "trabajar". Spanish speakers recognize the subject of a sentence from the conjugation of the verb. That’s why they don’t always mention the subject explicitly.To reply to that question, you can say “yo trabajo + en + name of company/institution”Occupations:Pianista (both male and female). Trabaja en conciertosEscritor(a). Trabaja en su cuartoDoctor(a). Trabaja en el hospital.Actor – actriz. Trabaja en el teatro.Abogado(a). Trabaja en la corteProfesor(a).

Hablar de la edad / Talking about ageIn Spanish we use the verb "tener" to talk about age.Conjugation: yo tengo / tú tienes / él - ella tieneIf  you want to say, "I'm 32 years old" you have to say "yo tengo 32 años"The question for asking about somebody's age is the following : ¿Cuántos años tienes (tú)? (How old are you?).  Another variation of this question is "¿Qué edad tienes (tú)?" Diálogo:Marco: Jessica, ¿cuántos años tienes?Jessica: tengo 29 años, ¿y tú, Marco? ¿Qué edad tienes?Marco: tengo 28 años. ¿y tú hermana? ¿Cuántos años tiene tu hermana?Jessica: mi hermana tiene 20. Ella es más joven. ¿y tu amigo, José? ¿Cuántos años tiene tu amigo?Marco: Mi amigo tiene 40 años. El es un poco más viejo.______________Visit our website: www.latinele.comContact email: latinele@latinele.comSend us a voice message: https://www.speakpipe.com/latineleFollow us on:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/latinele.learnspanish/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/latinelepodcast/Twitter: https://twitter.com/LatinEleYoutube: https://www.youtube.com/latineleSupport us:To support our show, visit https://www.latinele.com/donacionesPatreon: https://www.patreon.com/latinele
