In this Spanish video lesson from my Advanced Spanish course we will take a detailed look at the Spanish word Poco, as well as Poca, Un poco, Pocos, etc.

This is a very commonly used Spanish word that you will have seen and heard many times, but it is also one that can prove a bit tricky and many of my Spanish students have voiced their doubts as to certain uses and meanings.

This is the first in a series of two videos on the Spanish word Poco and I aim to resolve all of your uncertainties.

Lesson notes:

En esta clase vamos a hablar de la palabra “poco”.

Me imagino que alguna vez habéis dudado entre usar la palabra “poco”, “poca”, “un poco”, “pocos”…

Vamos a ver qué usar en diferentes situaciones.

Si la palabra “poco” se refiere a un sustantivo, entonces tiene que concordar en género y número con dicho sustantivo. Por ejemplo: “Pocas personas”, “poco dinero”, “pocos hermanos”, “poca grasa”…

Si por el contrario, la palabra “poco” se refiere a un adjetivo, entonces debes usar siempre la forma masculina, singular “poco”: “poco simpático”, “poco simpática”, “poco saludable”, “poco listo”, “poco lista”.

Cuando se refiere a un verbo pasa igual, usamos siempre “poco”: “como poco”, “compramos poco”, “hablan poco”…
