Spanish grammar exercises to get you one step closer to fluency

Spanish grammar. Why learn it?

You can never truly say you know Spanish until you learn its grammar. Learning grammar adds structure to your knowledge and helps you communicate better. By learning the most important Spanish grammar rules, you become more confident when speaking Spanish, thus reducing the fear of embarrassment whenever you communicate with fluent speakers.

The easiest way to learn the essentials of Spanish grammar is to put together a study plan. Here’s how you can start:

  1. 1. Learn the basic Spanish grammar rules. First things first: it’s important to take it slowly and don’t overwhelm yourself with too much information. Start at the beginning with noun genders, plurals and basic rules for regular and irregular verbs.
  2. 2. Take notes to deepen your understanding of the grammar rules. Writing things down can help you grasp certain concepts better. Besides, you can revisit your notes whenever you need to refresh your memory.
  3. 3. Find patterns between your mother language and Spanish. Finding patterns or similarities and making the right connections will accelerate your learning process.
  4. 4. Read more to learn how Spanish grammar works. Did you reach that point where you can read in Spanish? Great. Use that to your own advantage. Pay close attention to what you’re reading and study the new grammatical structures.
  5. 5. Practice what you’ve learned. You know that practice makes perfect. Every time you reach a new level with your Spanish grammar, create sentences – or even whole texts if you’re comfortable – to apply the newly acquired concepts.

Spanish grammar rules

Spanish grammar online

Are you ready to start learning? Here are some of the most important grammar rules in the Spanish language:

● Nouns are assigned genders. In Spanish, all nouns have a gender – either masculine or feminine. The rule is simple: most nouns that end in -o are masculine, and most that end in -a are feminine. Just remember that the article must always match the noun. For instance, you should say un niño (a boy) and una niña (a girl), not una niño or un niña.
● The verb form reflects the subject of the sentence. Infinitive regular verbs in Spanish end in either -ar, -er, or -ir like bromear (“to joke”), comer (“to eat”), and escribir (“to write”). To conjugate them, you need to remove the infinitive ending and replace it with the form that reflects the right person and number. Let’s conjugate the verb bromear to better understand how the ending changes:
Yo bromeo.
Tú bromeas.
Él / Ella / Usted bromea.
Nosotros /Nosotras bromeamos.
Vosotros / Vosotras bromeáis.
Ellos / Ellas / Ustedes bromean.
Adjectives come after the noun that they modify. For example, if you want to say “The red jacket is my favorite” in Spanish, you’ll say “La chaqueta roja es mi favorita”. Additionally, just like articles, adjectives must agree in gender and number with the noun. Like this: las rosas blancas (‘the white roses’).
● There are three moods in Spanish: indicative, subjunctive and imperative. The indicative mood is the most common and is used to relate facts and objective statements.
● Spanish uses multiple formal and informal ways of saying ‘you’. Some of these are tú (informal, singular), usted (formal, singular), ustedes (formal, plural) and vosotros/vosotras (masculine/feminine, informal, plural, used only in Spain).

Practical Spanish grammar rules

Ser/Estar – Although they both mean ‘to be’, ser and estar are used in different circumstances. Ser is used to talk about permanent or lasting attributes like characteristics or professions. For example, if your name is Ana, you can say “Yo soy Ana” because your name will always be Ana. Estar, on the other hand, is used to indicate temporary states. For example, if you are tired, you’ll only feel like this for a limited period of time so you can safely say “Yo estoy cansada”.
To have/To be – In Spanish, ‘to be’ is used far less often. Instead, Spanish speakers use ‘to have’ (tener) to express a feeling or a need they have as a certain point in time. For example: tengo hambre (“I am hungry”).
Time – In Spanish, there are multiple words for ‘time’ that can be used in different scenarios. ‘Hora’ specifically refers to the time on a clock while ‘vez’ means time, but for a specific event like this time, that time, one time, etc.
Yo – As yo means ‘I’, it should normally be used in every sentence that includes ourselves, right? Well, Spanish speakers tend to omit it entirely.
