Isn't vos exclusive to Argentina?

July 15, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yumi.V

No, it is a mostly South American use of 2nd singular personal pronoun. It uses in all Argentina instead of "tú", so several people who don't speak Spanish thinks that. But it isn't true. "Vos" is used also in Uruguay, Paraguay, Some parts of Bolivia, Chile, even in Central America.

January 3, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jeanette525

Don't worry too much about the chart. It's not as complicated as it looks. For now, you just have to know present tense. For "beber", you get:

bebo= I drink; bebes= you drink; bebe= he/she/it/you-formal drinks; bebemos= we drink; beben= they drink.

And the endings (-o, -es, -e, -emos, -en) will be the same for (almost) all -er verbs, and very similar for the others. Good luck!

August 4, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/rocko2012

The regular -AR, -ER, -IR verbs each have a repeating pattern so it is not quite as bad as it seems. So learn each pattern and you can apply them to regular verbs with the same ending. In English we can contract words like "I would/should" to "I'd" So it is basically the same deal in Spanish the pronoun is conjugated with the verb. The irregular verbs are a pain though. It is definitely harder than I thought it would be.

It's something to do with all the context and everything. It's really confusing for me. I thing bebo goes with yo (I), bebe goes with them, she, he, it, they ect, and bebe goes with notrodas or you or something like that.

May 10, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/rocko2012

The verb can be conjugated with the pronoun in Spanish. "Beber" + "yo" = "bebo" = "I drink". Check out a conjugation chart. http://www.spanishdict.com/translate/beber#conjugation

May 10, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tessbee

Not quite, samuel. It really has nothing to do with context, but everything to do with the verb's doer's (who's doing the drinking) NUMBER(Singular or Plural) and PERSON (First Person, Second Person, Third Person). So, you were right to say bebO goes with Yo (I). But bebE goes with Él, Ella, Usted (He, She, It, You-FORMAL/POLITE-SINGULAR). bebeS goes with (You-INFORMAL/FAMILIAR:. bebeMOS goes with Nosotros/Nosotras (We). bebeN goes with Ellos, Ellas, Ustedes (They, You-PLURAL)

Is the o in 'bebo' being dropped in this sentence? It's a bit awkward to say 'bebo agua" since there is no liaison between vowels. Is she actually pronouncing "Yo beb agua'?

March 5, 2013

The correct pronunciation should take a clear 'o'

April 23, 2013

March 5, 2013

So is "yo" pronounced like "chu"? I was really confused listening to this sentence and thought the solution was "tú bebes agua" but knew that the recording wasn't saying "bebeS". (Though slowing it down helped a lot!)

March 30, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Santi_Minstrel

in countries like Argentina, the pronuntiation of the 'y' is very different as it is in Spain. They say something similar to /sho/, while in Spain is more similar to 'jo' with the 'j' as in 'just'.

You're welcome. Think that it has been a while since Spain spread the language in America ^^ They have evolved differently. Also, don't get too hard on pronunciation, because even in Spain we have so many inner dialects and accents you would get crazy soon. =)

yes. As a general rule, Spanish may omit subjects, since verbs provide that information.

January 12, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tu.8zPhLD72zzoZN

First you should know what they mean in English:
http://www.really-learn-english.com/subjunctive-mood.html

Then the subjunctive mood is used more often in Spanish than it is used in English. http://spanish.about.com/od/verbmoods/a/intro_subjunct.htm

http://www.spanishdict.com/topics/show/68

http://www.studyspanish.com/lessons/subj1.htm

http://www.123teachme.com/learn_spanish/subjunctive_vs_indicative

http://spanish.about.com/od/verbmoods/a/when_to_use_subjunctive.htm http://spanish.about.com/od/conjugation/a/subjunctive-conjugation.htm

Now, the sentence in this lesson "Yo bebo agua." is a straight fact with no hopes, wishes, feelings, doubt expressed so it is in the indicative mood, just a regular sentence. No need to worry about subjunctive here as Duolingo will teach that later.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tu.8zPhLD72zzoZN

I drink water. (any water) "the water" is being very specific. (not just any water - the water....... We are expecting more information such as a brand of bottled water or a prepositional phrase describing what kind of water or which place it came from.) "I eat an apple." works because you can count one apple, but water is not as easily countable unless it is in a container or dripping from a faucet. "a glass of water" or "a drop of water"

Water is always considered to be some water and "some" does not actually need to be specified.

Is the "o" at the end ever time you are speaking in 1st person?

October 15, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Yes for present, but not for the other tenses.

April 18, 2014

i dont get it bebo is for a boy right or a girl

December 6, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SarahTheEntwife

Neither -- it's for the "I" form. Spanish doesn't have gendered forms of first person.

January 28, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tu.8zPhLD72zzoZN

You are right that many Spanish nouns that end in -o are masculine, such as "niño", but the word "bebo" is a verb and that -o ending is given for verbs in the regular indicative mood present tense for "yo" (1st person, singular) to mean "I drink" (I is either, no gender is known. I could be a boy or a girl. Same with "yo"). The different endings for verbs are called conjugations.

when do you use s or o

February 20, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

"o" for "I" at the present. "s" for "you" at the present, but see the conjugation tables, it's better.

April 18, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AbhishekGu194247

Can "Yo" and "soy" be used alternatively or is it something specific in their usage?

April 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

"Yo" is only "I", and can be skipped. "Yo soy" means "I am", but you can skip "yo" and say only "soy". Soy = I am.

April 18, 2014

I think "Bebo agua" should be a correct answer also

June 30, 2014

Should be, it's the same without the pronoun in Spanish.

July 5, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yumi.V

The end of the verbs depends on the infinitive verb termination. The terminations are "-ar", "-er" and "-ir". Each conjugation have diferent words end in each personal pronoun. Use a chart and with the time you would remeber http://www.onoma.es/#beber+pronominal=false+tiempos=0$3$+personas=1$2$4$5$8$10$12$13$+paradigma=2

July 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FadumaHass

Why does she say ''que cocino 'yo'' she says yo like in English, but ''yo bebo agua" the y sounds like j i don't get it

July 14, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anonymous.user

Okay so I noticed that before drinks we don't put " el/la " , " un/una " ?! why don't we use them ? Sorry if the question sounds stupid , but I've just started learning Spanish and I knew nothing about it before.

July 15, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yumi.V

el/la = the

un/una = a

Then, you don't say in English "the drinks (verb)" or "a drinks (verb)", you use a personal pronoun. That's why :)

July 17, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anonymous.user

Yeah , I know but I've actually learnt not to compare between languages so I don't get confused but if this rule is common in both languages than this makes things way more easier now :)

I reported the audio as sounding like there is a Morphophonic liaison between bebo and agua

July 19, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/madtrueblue

But would agua not me feminine so you would ise a feminine verb?

July 23, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yumi.V

Agua IS feminine ALLWAYS. Agua is ALLWAYS feminine [It uses a masculine article in singular since it's a paroxytone (stressed in the 2nd syllable from the end) that starts with an a, if you use the feminine article la with it, it sounds "lagua", so you must use the masculine article el], there a few nouns that can change the gender, that is NOT common. Verbs have NO genders. I drink water is ALLWAYS Yo bebo agua or Yo tomo agua.

July 25, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/i-hate-spanish-

why is it wrong doesnt yo bebo agua and yo bebe agua mean the same thing?

December 12, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yumi.V

No, each conjugation for each personal pronoun is different. The 2nd one you said is for the 3rd person "él" and "ella", also for the 2nd person "usted", and only for them.

My comment was about usual usage in English. It is extremely rare in English to say " I drink water. " It may be a literal translation however, it is not what is generally understood by that phrase. Que tu bebes? Is normally understood as meaning what are going to drink? The unspoken thought is do you want water, soda, beer ect. Or the other unspoken thought is what are doing in the kitchen?

To me "I drink water" != "I am drinking water", "I drink water" is stating something you have done before or may do again but does not tell me you are currently drinking water like "I am drinking water" does. "I drink water" is a perfectly valid English sentence. It could very well be that Spanish speaker does not mean that when he says "Yo bebo agua."

"i drink water" could be taken as one of many activities/things that i do/drink ( describe a fact)?

It's the literal, present indicative translation duolingo wants at this point. But using the present indicative for a progressive tense isn't unheard of.

Yeah, usually there would be some sort of context to it -- "I drink water (after a workout)" perhaps.

I don't understand why it was not bebe because I thought that agua was feminine so why put an o

The verb has nothing to do with the noun, only with the subject (here: the pronoun).

"Yo bebo" is one thing, and "agua" is another thing, they are nothing to do.

It's alwyas "yo bebo" (or "bebo") whatever you're a female or a male, verbs agree with the pronoun, not with the gender of the person.

The actual translation should be: I am drinking water.

Probably not there are words in Spanish to say "I am" = "Yo estoy" and there are "ing" words in Spanish "bebiendo" = "drinking" "Yo estoy bebiendo agua" may mean "I am drinking water"

Exactly "Estoy bebiendo agua" (not soy)

Thanks I did not know there was a difference. I'll edit my comment.

It is because "estar" is the "to be" auxilary in Spanish, never "ser". (Nothing to do with the permanent/unpermanent)

When you say: "I am drinking" in English, the verb is "to drink", there's not 2 verbs, "am" is only an auxiliary not a verb, same in Spanish...

Hint: translate to be + -ing using 'estar', not 'ser'

Rocko makes sense. Anyway, without context it can be either "I drink water" or "I am drinking water."
