This is the 33rd Spanish lesson in the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Practice Course. This is an interactive Spanish video where you have the opportunity to practice Spanish at pre-intermediate level with a native Spanish speaker.
In this interactive Spanish video lesson we will review how to make gerunds in Spanish to be used with the Spanish Present Continuous El Presente Continuo. Gerunds are verbs ending in -ing in English and are verbs used with the Present Continuous tense to describe what you are doing in that moment. Gerunds in Spanish (Gerundios) are conjugated in a different way, but are also very simple to use – finishing in -ando or -iendo. You should be aware of the rules for conjugating gerunds in Spanish for verbs finishing in either -ar, -er, or -ir. If you cannot remember these rules then I recommend going back to the original theory lesson on this topic and reviewing them.
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 Pre-Intermediate Spanish Lesson 33: Practice using the Spanish Present Continuous from my Pre-Intermediate Spanish Course.
