"I want to speak Spanish."
Translation:Yo quiero hablar español.
Why is "Hablo" not the correct word? "Hablar" is an infinitive pronoun, which means it needs to have a proper ending replacing the "ar" at the end. Since the sentence is talking about yo, it should be hablo. Please correct me if I'm wrog
This has already been answered (see my response to Lauren below). Please remember to read all posts to see if the answer to your question is already there. thx
He wants to speak spanish and I want to speak english, much, much. But it's little difficult
Lauren, in Spanish when two verbs are together like this you only conjugate the first verb. In this case 'querer' = 'I want'. The second verb left in the infinitive form which is usually translated as 'to something '. In this case 'hablar' = 'to speak'.
Is "yo quiero a hablar español" technically correct, even if it's grammatically poor?
It is incorrect because of the 'a'. You don't need it. 'quiero' = I want, 'hablar' = to speak.
