Understanding the INFINITIVE
Preparing for Week 5
We will learn how to talk about what we like to do this week.
When you learn that "correr" means "to run", then you have learned the verb "correr" but it is in its infinitive form.
- In order for "to run" to be used with "I" , it becomes "run", "I run tomorrow at noon".
- In order for "to run" to be used with "He", it becomes "runs". "He runs today."
In Spanish, we call this change in the verb, conjugation. Each infinitive has a pattern of rules we use to "conjugate" it, meaning to use the correct form for whatever the "subject pronoun" is. And we´ll learn about subject pronouns, but they are in English, I, you, he, she, we, they, etc.
