    I know this is probably a dumb question, but do you all just use a Spanish font or are there some shortcuts for those of use who use North American laptops and programs?
    Apreciaria ayuda con esto. Muchisimas gracias!
    I find that going to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map is an easy way of using the different accents and what not. Just click the one you want and copy it. Use CTRL + V to paste into your text. It's a bit easier than remembering all the different codes if you don't use them that often. If not, going with the function key would work better.

    Thank you jandros and rydizzle! Now I have no excuse for not using correct ortografia (well except for that accent over the "i" in ortografia!).
    Thanks again!

    What is the verb for "to hit?"

    Also, when you have a verb in Conditional Tense(ía, ías, ía, etc.), where would you place the pronoun?

    For "to hit" you could use "golpear" or "pegar."

    & for the conditional tense, the pronoun goes in front of the verb.

    Gracias a DeBaires. (:

    Another question....

    In Future Tense, do all verbs that end in '-ber' become have stem change into a '-br-?'

    And the same thing for:

    '-lir' verbs change to '-ldr-'
    And,
    '-ner' or '-nir' verbs change to '-ndr-'?

    I hope I make sense. x__x;;

    Future Tense Formation of Regular Verbs

    The future for regular verbs is formed with the infinitive + the ending.

    Here is a conjugation example of a regular verb with an "ar" ending.

    CANTAR (TO SING)

    Yo cantaré
    Tú cantarás
    Ël cantará
    Nosotros cantaremos
    Vososotros cantaréis
    Ellos cantarán

    Verbs with an "er" ending

    comeré
    comerás
    comerá
    comeremos
    comeréis
    comerán

    Verbs with an "ir" ending

    escribiré
    escribirás
    escribirá
    escribiremos
    escribiréis
    escribirán

    As you can see, differently from other tenses, the endings for future are the same, regardless of the infinitive ending in –ar, -er or -ir.

    But you are talking about irregular verbs

    ej. querer becomes querré
    ej. salir.......saldré
    ej. poner....pondré
    ej. venir.....vendré

    but abolir becomes aboliré (regular verb) and 'cenir' becomes 'cerniré'(regular too)

    I think there's no rule for irregular verbs just some coincidences


    Saludos

    if it wasn't for all the tenses and conjugations (especially with irregular verbs), spanish would be one of the easiest languages to learn

    my biggest problem is lo que, el que, la que, los que, las que, de quien, a quien, con quien, because in english i don't exactly speak in proper grammer (ha but who does anyway these days xD) so when i read books in spanish, it becomes a pain to look up these words and then reinterpret the sentence.

    Relative Pronouns: el que, la que, los que, las que, and lo que


    Remember that pronouns are words that refer to a noun. Relative pronouns are called "relative" because they are "related" to a noun that has previously been stated.

    Note that there are four forms to accomodate singular and plural, masculine and feminine: el que, la que, los que, las que.

    e.g. Mi hermano, el que tú conoces, viene a visitarme hoy
    My brother, the one you know, is coming to visit me today
    e.g. Mi hermana, la que conoces, viene a visitarme hoy
    My sister, the one you know, is coming to visit me today
    e.g Mis hermanos, los que conoces vienen a visitarme hoy
    My brothers, the ones you know, are coming to visit me today
    e.g. Mis hermanas, las que tu conoces. vienen a visitarme hoy
    My sisters, the ones you know, are coming to visit me today

    When the relative pronoun refers to an abstract idea, use "lo que."

    e.g. No comprendo lo que ocurre.
    I do not understand that which is happening.

    Quien (plural quienes) agrees in number with its antecedent, and refers only to persons

    e.g. el hombre a quien ví (the man whom I saw).
    you can say "el hombre al que vi (it has the same meaning)
    e.g Las niñas de quienes hablo (the girls of whom I speak)
    you can say too "las niñas de las que hablo
    e. la mujer con quien trabajo (the woman with whom I work)
    or la mujer con la que trabajo

    the prepositions a, de, con are used depending the verbs we are using

    ver a to see (a person)
    hablar de to speak of
    trabajar con to work with

    Saludos

    yeayea i get the same thing because i'm white, but my spanish within the next 2 yrs will become fluent hopefully :]

    learn proper spanish first because slang varies everywhere and in one place where you may be understood, you wouldn't be understood in another. if you learn proper spanish you will always be understood no matter where you are or what you're reading or watching.

    i almost got in a fight today in school with some white boy tryin to talk stuff. i hate livin with a bunch of rednecks now since i came up in a bad area where it was nothin but hispanics and some blacks. stuff like that really gets me and i gotta try hard not to beat the crap out of people. and i agree, learn as proper as you can, but try to learn slang at the same time since you don't wanna sound uptight and gringo-ish jaja.
