SPANISH (Stem changing verbs) Boot verbs have specific changes. Only “nosotros” doesn’t have this change I stay out of the boot! NOSOTROS All boot verb conjugations that would be “in the boot” have a change before adding the regular endings. I feel regular & normal. I don’t like all of these crazy changes, so I avoid boots. Please click on the form that would not have a BOOT verb change. Él Ellos Ella Tú Nosotros Yo Nosotros Some boot change verbs take an innocent little “e” and make it into an “ie.” See what happens with the verb “pensar” As usual, the “—ar” ending comes off. Pensar As usual, the “—ar” ending comes off. Pens- Now the “e” becomes “ie”. Pens- Now the “e” becomes “ie”. Piens- Now you just add the regular endings.

NOSOTROS So now you get the idea of the “e” to “ie” boot verbs. There are some boot verbs that make a change from an “o” or a “u” into “ue.” One that we have practiced is “jugar.” It is a “u” to “ue” boot verb. All you need to do now is get through a maze to give “jugar” its “ue.” Sounds simple, doesn’t it? All you have to do to finish the practice it get to the “ue.” Es muy fácil. Ok, click the “jugar” button to play. Oh, by the way: Don’t touch the walls of the maze. You will have 10 seconds. Suerte. JUGAR UE JUGAR Ouch! You got the boot! That must have hurt! Try again. ¡Tú juegas muy bien! You have completed your boot verb practice! P.S.: I was just kidding about only having 10 seconds. If you did it that fast, give yourself a pat on the back. Gracias. Now just write your name and date on a paper with a note telling that you practiced boot verbs. This will give you wonderful extra credit! ¡Chévere! ¡No hay más!
