https://www.duolingo.com/LostYuuya

I'm glad to be of help. In most cases, everything that is before the "er" "ar" or "ir" is the root, which stays the same. The ending is all that changes, and the change is that simple pattern. ;) Quite simple once you learn it.

WHATS THE DIFERENCE BETWEEN BEBE ANS BEBES??

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/LostYuuya

Beber is the verb for "To Drink"

Beb is the root of the word since that's what comes before the "er".

As you see, the "er" changes depending on who it is directed to.

Beber I drink - o - Bebo

You (informal) drink - es - Bebes

He/She/You drink - e - Bebe

We drink - emos - Bebemos

Y'all/They drink - en - Beben

Hope this doesn't sound confusing.

Most verbs go by a simply order. Depending on if it's an ar, er, or ir verb. There's the root and the ending.

Ar verbs -Example Hablar I speak - o - Hablo You (informal) speak - as - Hablas He/she/you speak - a - Habla We speak - amos - Hablamos They/Y'all speak - an - Hablan

https://www.duolingo.com/Ddmacd

beber is the verb to drink I drink, you drink, he,she drinks, we drink, they drink

bebo , bebes, bebe, bebemos, beben

the endings change depending on which pronoun is used. (above)

the difference between bebe and bebes gets confusing

if you are talking to a child or someone in your family, or a friend, you use a familiar ending -- bebes if you are talking to a stranger, or someone who is older, or someone with authority, you use the formal ending -- bebe. bebe and bebes both mean the same thing but are used in different situations. If you are on a first name basis with someone you would use bebes (familiar) It is like when we use the word "sir" or "Mr", -- "bebe" ; and others you drop the formality and call by their first name -- bebes

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/LostYuuya

No, this doesn't work the same way in English with the s. Bebe means he/she/you(formal) drinks. Bebes means you (informal) drinks.

I'm taking a class, so I know this.

To make any verb plural you add "an" or "entity" depending on the verb ending.

Ar (Hablar) - An (Hablan) Er (Beber) - En (Beben) Ir (Vivir) - En (Viven)

Can we use Una as a and the

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/LostYuuya

No, Una is the female version of Un. So since Mujer is woman in Spanish, you have to make the article (a, the) feminine.

The in this case since Mujer is feminine, will be La. La is the feminine article for the, while El is the masculine (male)

La mujer bebe agua. The woman drinks water.

One last note: El and La are singular. Only used for 1 noun.

Here are the plural forms of the two articles: El - Los Los gatos estas en la casa. The cats are in the house.

La - las Las chicas van a la parque. The girls go to the park.

It is called "conjugating the verb". Most verbs have a pattern one can learn and apply it to most other verbs.

There are the other pronouns (of course), but the ones you have mentioned are;

Bebe - he/she/it drinks

Bebes - you drink
