Intermediate Spanish Course

In this free Spanish video lesson we will see different ways to offer, accept and reject in Spanish with Spanish phrases such as De acuerdo (OK) and No, no hace falta (No, it is not necessary). We will also look at the Spanish Subjunctive structure of ¿Querer que + subjuntivo? (To want to/would like to). With this structure we can offer things such as a lift to the airport: ¿Quieres que te lleve al aeropuerto? (Would you like me to take you to the airport?), always remembering that the verb needs to be changed to its subjunctive form (lleve). I hope you are starting to get a feel for the Spanish Subjunctive and have a good collection of Spanish expressions, Spanish phrases and Spanish vocabulary up your sleeve. Learning any language takes time and patience and the Spanish language is no different. There really are no quick fixes to learning Spanish; the only way to get there is to make studying Spanish an enjoyable part of your lifestyle. Study little and often and source out subject matter that is genuinely of interest to you. Learning Spanish is not rocket science; I firmly believe that anyone can do it well, but only if they stick at it and really, genuinely want to succeed.

Lesson notes:

¿Querer que + subjuntivo?: To want to/would like to + subjunctive:
¿Quieres que te lleve al aeropuerto?: Would you like me to take you to the airport?

Accepting the offer:

Venga, vale: OK
De acuerdo: OK
Como quieras… gracias: As you wish… thank you
Si quieres: If you want
Genial, gracias, de verdad: Fantastic, thank you so much, really
Te lo agradezco en el alma: I really appreciate it
Te lo agradecería un montón: I would appreciate it so much

Rejecting an offer:

No, gracias, de verdad: Honestly, no, thanks
No, no es necesario, gracias: No, it is not necessary, thank you
No, no hace falta, muchas gracias de todas formas: No, it is not necessary, thank you anyway
