"Bebamos más agua."

Translation:Let's drink more water.

April 29, 2013



so the previous sentence used comamos and was translated as we will eat.....but here i cannot say we will drink?

"comamos" is like an invite or suggestion to eat, it never means "we will eat" that will be "comeremos" the conjugations may seem similar hence confusing them

As a command, it's similar to "let's". As subjunctive, it hints at being unsure. "We might eat (but we also might not eat)"

we drink more water? no?

April 29, 2013


we drink = bebemos.... but.... let us drink = bebamos which is the subjunctive ( I think...)

July 17, 2013


If it's subjunctive shouldn't the meaning be, "we should drink more water". ?

No, I think that would be "Deberíamos beber más água"

It's imperative. The fact that it's "bebAmos" and that there isn't anything like "maybe" to make it subjunctive indicates that it's a sort of command or suggestion.

Okay wait, are these like a form of "Hagamos...". Which is like "Let's do..." I think that it is because of;

Bebamos = Let's drink

Comamos = Let's eat

And all this other stuff, is that basically how it is or am I wrong?

Yes :-)

Just realized: Bebemos: We drink Bebimos: We drank Bebamos: Let's drink!

March 30, 2017


If that realization struck you so strongly, prepare for this revelation: This is true for every verb!

Not every verb actually; only -er verbs hav 3 different conjugations within these tenses for nosotros/nosotras. Andar is andamos, andamos, andemos or vivir is vivimos, vivimos, vivamos.

Beber se usa a veces pero en muchos lados de sudamerica se dice tomar agua y beber se utiliza para el alcohol

Muy cierto :)

If a sentence is an affirmative command/imperative, we use "Ud." present tense conjugation; while "tu" subjunctive for negative ones.

But if the command includes the speaker (nosotros), it is always in subjunctive, positive or not?

November 24, 2013


yes, it is. The only peculiarity with vosotros/nosotros commands is when we use reflexive verbs (drop last letter and add pronoun), more here http://www.studyspanish.com/lessons/commrev2.htm

can someone explain the difference in meaning between "Bebemos mas agua" and "bebamos mas agua"

December 8, 2013

  1. We drink more water. (some general fact)
  2. Let's drink more water. (you are the leader of a group and you give order to your group and yourself to drink more water)

Bebemos mas agua es una afirmacion y bebamos mas agua puede ser tomado como sugerencia, o continuidad

January 23, 2018


I said "we must drink more water". Any reason why this is not ok?

May 21, 2014


Usually if you are trying to use the word "must" the spanish use "deber" or "tener que" (debemos beber más agua). This sentence is more like a suggestion or an invitation, rather than a strict command. That's the best reason I can think of!

November 27, 2014


Porque eso significaria debemos beber mas agua

January 23, 2018


Other languages call this a volitional form.

April 8, 2016


Is it idiomatically equivalent to say, "Vamos a beber más água!"?

April 18, 2016


Hola SameerSiru. Yes, it is the same, but is "agua", no água. Saludos

Hola, hablo español. The voice is wrong, she says: "Bibamos ....." and must be "Bebamos ....." The pronunciation is wrong. I just reported it. Saludos
