Why trabajar with THEY and not trabajan?
Trabajan= they work
Trabajar= to work
Because trabajar is "to work" but trabajan is "they work" even though trabajan can work this sentence is saying to say "to work" or trabajar
Because it's always "Trabajar" if there is a "To" in front.
Trabajar means "To work".
Trabajar is the 2nd verb in the sentence and so you leave it unconjugated in its infinitive form. Conjugate the first verb -to want (querer), and don't conjugate trabajar. Quieren trabajar = they want to work.
Can anyone tell me how to know when to use “ELLOS OR ELLAS”
ellos, when are all men, or 50%men and 50% women, and ellas when they're all women
Universidad is feminine? I am having trouble memorizing the words that don't follow the "normal" a/o ending for male/female. Any tricks for remembering?
A lot of nouns that end in "-dad" are feminine! ;)
What is the difference between "Ellos"and "Ellas"?
Ellos <-> they [masculine]
Ellas <-> they [feminine]
then why is ellas quieren trabajar en una universidad not accepted? they did not specify if the they are girls or boys?
nevermind, i wrote un universidad instead of una. get it now
To is the same thing as "en" but there's only one "en" and it doesn't replace to instead it replaces in, shouldn't there be two "en's"?
'To' is usually translated as 'a' rather than 'en', but 'to work' is the infinitive, 'trabajar', so you don't need 'en' here'. The only 'en' you need is for 'in the university'.
So, universidad is feminine?
Yes, words ending in '-dad' are feminine.
If it does not say what the gender of the "they" is why is it wrong to say ellas?
