Read or "Leo"
Maybe some day I will learn the difference between, lee, lees, and leen. and where they go and when to use them.
What might help is if you get it wrong duolingo says you were wrong (like they do now) and then put "Here is why," or "This is the right answer, and this is how it differs from your answer."
There was at least three times I got so close to the end, then they would hit me with the lee, leen, an lees, and that would knock me back to the middle. The only reason I passed this lesson is because, Ella soy un persona.
http://www.studyspanish.com/verbs/lessons/pireg.htm Yo leo = I read; tú lees = you read, él/ella/Usted lee = he/she/you (formal) read; nosotros leemos = we read, vosotros leéis = you (plural) read, and ellos/ellas/Ustedes leen = they/they/you (formal & plural) read. The idea is to learn the pattern that goes with conjugating verbs so that every time you see it, you recognize who is doing what.
Lee, lees, and leen are all conjugated forms of leer.
Leer - to read
I hope this helps. vB
P.S. "Ella soy una persona" is improper. Ser conjugates to "es", not "soy". Did Duolingo really accept that answer?
No, I was in the middle of another lesson, and I was posting this at the same time. So I just got them mixed up.
Thank you for you help!
Yeah, I was a bit confused at first as well! With verbs, you have to "conjugate" or change them depending on the context. If I were to say "I read" I would say "Leo un libro" or "Yo leo un libro" Same thing with "you read", "Lees un libro" and so on and so forth. There is 7 ways to conjugate your verbs: The yo(I) form, the tu (you) form, the El, Ella, or Usted form (he,she, you-formal), the vosotros form (you all in spain) and the ellos, ellas, and ustedes form. (m. they, f. they, you all) The link ElimGarak provided should help you from there :) Good luck!
