Verbs in Spanish, a little difficult theme.
One of the major difficulties that has the Spanish language learning for English-speaking persons is to understand and learn the verbs and their conjugations in different times.
This difficulty is caused by the following reasons:
- As with the vocabulary in Spanish in general where, for the characteristic of Romance language, there are many synonyms for nouns, adjectives and adverbs, the amount of verbs with similar meanings is huge. In this regard, the practical and simplified English language sense, besides the great use that makes the language of “meaning by context”, facilitates learning of English for Spanish speakers.
- The amount of verbal conjugations in Spanish is huge compared to the English, where the use of auxiliary verbs and the rules of conjugation for different persons of the singular and the plural, makes much less extensive amount of verbal expressions to learn from the student.
Although sometimes these observations tend to make people believe that we are “frightening” or causing those who are learning the Spanish want to abandon the attempt, the real intention of the comments is to help understand the difficulties in overcoming them. As rightly said the philosopher and Chinese strategist Sun Tzu, in his book The Art of War, “only by knowing your enemy, you can beat him”.
