About Grammar (Spanish)

Grammar is the set of structural rules that govern how sentences are formed in a language. Spanish grammar is no different; in fact, many of the rules are similar to those in English. However, there are some key differences that students need to be aware of.

One of the most important aspects of Spanish grammar is verb conjugation. Verbs in Spanish must be conjugated to match the subject of the sentence. For example, the verb "to eat" (comer) would be conjugated as "como" for first person singular ("I eat"), "comes" for second person singular ("you eat"), and so on. This can be a bit tricky for students of Spanish, but with some practice it will become second nature.

Another important element of Spanish grammar is the use of gender. Every noun in Spanish is assigned a gender (either masculine or feminine), and this must be taken into account when conjugating verbs and using adjectives. For example, the word "house" (casa) is feminine, so the verb "to live in" (vivir) would be conjugated as "vivo" (for masculine subjects) and "vive" (for feminine subjects).
