In this Spanish lesson we will learn some Spanish indefinite pronouns and adjectives (some, any, something, anything, etc) and how to use them with negative/positive sentences and questions. As with English, the Spanish indefinite pronoun or adjective you use depends on whether the sentence is negative, positive or a question. In English we say “some apples”, for example, when we have a positive affirmation that there are some apples, “no apples” for a negative statement that there aren’t any apples and “any apples” for a question about whether there any apples. In Spanish you will also have to remember various combinations of indefinite pronoun and adjective and I will explain them to you here in this Spanish video lesson. Please repeat each after me in the video and then practice as much as you can afterwards by writing example sentences in Spanish using all of the different combinations.
