"El hombre camina."
Translation:The man walks.
Why would the correct answer be camina, but not camino? I figured that hombre would be masculine since it refers to a man. Thanks.
Just to expand on your comment. The letter 'o' on a verb means the speaker is the Yo camino (?) person doing the act. The letter 'a' means a third party perfoming the act. Ella camina (?)
There are 3 appropriate translations for this sentence in English. 1. The man walks. 2. The man does walk. 3. The man is walking.
I translated this sentence as: "The man is walking." and I was told I was incorrect.I think my translation is better English than "The man walks."
"The man walks" is simple present tense whereas "The man is walking" is pressnt continuos.
Él camina = He walks (note the lack of "hombre" or man, and also the accent on the él)
El hombre camina = The man walks
the conjugation of the verb "caminar" is: camino (I walk) caminas (you walk --singular,informal) camina (he or she walks) caminamos (we walk) caminais (you walk--plural or formal) caminan (they walk) I believe that is correct. I believe "caminar" is a regular verb.
When you're new at a language you've got to remember that the language does not necessarily use something the way we do in English. Hence, 'The man walks' is El hombre camina. That is just the way Spanish grammar works.
Unfortunately many people have never had the opportunity to learn much about English grammar. Most North American schools nowadays teach very little grammar. If you understand English grammar it makes European languages' grammar easier to understand.
Because Caminar ends in "ar". If it were a regular verb ending in"er"(e.g. comer meaning to eat) it would end in (a).
I just can't got right when pronounce the word El, Él , Ella ... Please somebody give me a suggestion tomake it right? Thanks :D
