Boot Verbs

VIEWS: 2 PAGES: 31

									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.




       Piens-
For example: With “Yo” you add
the “-o”.



Yo Pienso
What would you add with “Tú?”
          -o
Tú Piens_ -as
           -a
       -nosotros
          -an
     Remember the “-ar” endings?

Yo       -o       Nosotros   -amos


Tú        -as     X

Él                Ellos
Ella      -a      Ellas      -an
Usted             Ustedes
     ¡Muy bien!



Tú Piensas
 So now that you know about the
 “-e” to “-ie” boot verbs, click on
the form that would not make this
  change with these boot verbs:
   Él (pensar)                 Yo (querer)


                 Ella (comenzar)

Nosotros (preferir)                Tú (cerrar)
Maybe you
need to see
this again.
Hmmmm…
    ¡Excelente! Notice that the
“nosotros” form kept its innocent
 little “e,” but nobody else did?

    Él piensa                 Yo quiero


                Ellas comienzan

Nosotros preferimos               Tú cierras
You remembered that “nosotros”
          doesn’t have
     the boot verb change.

                  I stay out of
                    the boot!


              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!
