This is an interactive Spanish video where you have the opportunity to practice Spanish at beginner level with a native Spanish speaker.
In this Spanish lesson you have the opportunity to practice using the verb To be in Spanish El verbo Ser. This is definitely one of the most important Spanish verbs, along with the other Spanish verb To be El verbo Estar. The verb To be is: I am, you are, he/she/it is, we are, you are, they are. This is fundamental to both English and Spanish and therefore one of the most important Spanish verbs to study and practice well. It is common for Spanish students to find learning and practicing El verbo Ser and El verbo Estar difficult at first. This is especially true for English speakers who are accustomed to using only one verb To be. But don’t worry, with practice and patience you will soon see the light and be using El verbo Ser with confidence.
Please try to watch the video first before looking at the lesson notes. Answers to all tasks involved in the lesson will be given at the end of the post. Try not to look at the answers until you have tried a good few times to give your own responses.
