"The boy does not need a car."
Translation:El niño no necesita un carro.
Necesita is 3rd person singular (the boy). Necesito is 1st person singular (I ).
Spanish (Spain) words often aren't. Please report the discrepancy when you see it. I don't want to speak south American Spanish in Spain.
Yo = necesito Tu = necesitas Él/ella/usted = necesita Nosotros = necesitamos Ellos/ellas/ustedes = necesitan
This pretty much works for a lot of words. Except with él/ella/usted, the words will sometimes end in an e instead of a. Thibking about it this way, has really helped on my language journey.
Yeah because "to need" is the verb which is "necesitar" when not conjugated
When use as the definite object it does not have an accent, when you use it for the third person it does: The - no accent He - accent
My pleasure. I find Spanish to be such an enigma at times, so am pleased to be able to help out.
When do you put the word "no". I never know when to put it. Before the person or after the person, and Why?
Just to make sure I understand, necesitas is for like "you need" and necesita is for "he or she needs" right?
