This lesson is part of the Advanced Spanish Course

In this Advanced Spanish lesson we will look more at the Spanish word “Se” and see how it is used with sentences such as “Se buscan personas” and “Se busca a personas”. There will be three Spanish lessons in total on this topic, this is the second lesson in the series.

The Spanish word “Se” is a tiny little word that you will hear all the time in Spanish conversation. It has many uses and is a word that many Spanish students struggle to properly master. Here I aim to clear up all of your doubts regarding “Se” and get you using it correctly.

In the previous video lesson on this topic we looked at “Las oraciones de pasiva refleja” and now we will look specifically at “Las oraciones impersonales”. It is vital to understand the differences between the two.

I hope very much that you are enjoying this FREE Advanced Spanish Course. This is lesson 29 so far. Please click here to catch up on all the other lessons..

Lesson notes:

Vamos a continuar explicando las diferencias entre las oraciones de pasiva refleja y las oraciones impersonales.

Vamos a ver ahora qué son las oraciones impersonales.

b) ORACIONES IMPERSONALES:

Se llaman así por no tener sujeto gramatical y en ellas la forma se precede siempre a un verbo en tercera persona del singular. Esta construcción puede darse en verbos sin OD (Se trabaja bien aquí) y con verbos con OD.

Si el OD es una persona ó personas deber llevar la preposición a (Se busca a los culpables del crimen). Y en este caso, la persona puede ser determinada o indeterminada. Lo sabemos por el artículo que va delante del nombre.

Por ejemplo, la persona es indeterminada si digo: “Se busca a actores”; y la persona es específica si digo: “ Se busca a los actores”.
