Beginner Practice Spanish Course

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 Spanish irregular verbs in present tense, specifically Spanish verbs which change an E to IE such as Entender, Querer, Comenzar, Perder, and Pensar. This is the first in a series of similar Beginner level practice video lessons highlighting Spanish irregular verbs in present tense. There are a few fairly simple rules that you need to be aware of and we learned these in detail in the Beginner Spanish Course. Here I will put you in a series of situations where you will need to remember and use such Spanish irregular verbs correctly according to the specific person in present tense. Let’s see how much you remember from the Beginner Course theory lessons!

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.

This lesson practices the information taught in Beginner Spanish Lesson 51: Using Spanish irregular verbs in present tense (E-IE) from my Beginner Spanish Course.
