Hello and welcome again, today I will tell you somethig that may be useful to know, I hope you like it, and remember, if it is useful for you, don't forget to share it with friend or with people who may need this info.

As in any language there are two kind of verbs, the irregular and the regular one. Well, there isn't a simple way to learn this by heart but it only depends on the practice, so the recommendation is to use them as much as you can. 

In the English language there are only three ways to conjugate the verbs, those are the Infinitive or basic form of the verb; the simple past and the past participle, for talking about future you have to use the modal will or the Be Going to. let's know the kind of verbs.

The Regular verbs:

These are the easiest because their particularity is that all of them finish in -ed in their past and past participle conjugation. Now you can see some of them in the following image.

 

 

The Irregular verbs:

This kind of verbs does not follow a specific structure, they work independently of any other. they may change all the word completely like this verb Go - Went - Gone, maybe it can only change one letter as in Make - Made - Made, even they may not change at all the word as in Read - Read - Read. Here you can see a list of some irregular verbs:

El verbo To Be es un verbo irregular que posee su propio modo de conjugación en el  simple present, él normalmente es usado para hacer descripciones o para mencionar la ubicación de un lugar, persona o animal, aquí vamos a usar mucho los adjetivos.

Estructuras:

(Para hacer descripciones)

(+)  Pron  +  aux verb  +  Adjective

(-)  Pron  +  aux verb  +  not  +  Adjective

* La negación puede ser contraída de esta manera (isn't - Aren't) pero la recomendación es ponerla por separado ya que es la manera más formal.

A funny error

Today I bring a funny story about a truly fact in a certain country, I hope you like it.

 

In Britrain, you have to take a test if you want to ride a motorbike. in the test you always have to do an 'emergency stop', where you stop the bike as quickly possible.

One day a young woman was taking her test. Everything was going well when the examiner called her and told herto stop the bike. He wanted to see an emergency stop, so he asked the woman to continue riding round the streets until he jumped in front of the bike and shouted 'stop!' he told the young woman not to go too slowly, but to continue as usual. 

A little nervous, she continued quite slowly on the route and was nearly at the end when she saw a few people in the road. One of them waved and asked her to come and help them. Her examiner was sitting in the road, confused, but not badly hurt. 'What happened?' the biker asked. 'I jumped out on front of the wrong bike', said the examiner, 'and it did not stop'.

The present progressive is used for mentioning the actions that are ocurring in the right moment they are said. It works with the same auxiliar verbs of the verb to Be (is- are- am). Its particularity is the use of the gerund (ING). it is easy to remember and to use, there are certain exceptions, but those are easy to remember as well.

 

          IS                            ARE                             AM

He               It              You           We                     I

         She                            They

 

 

Structures:

(-)  Pron  +  Aux verb  +  not  +  Verb (ing)  +  Compl

(?)  Aux verb  +  Pron  +  Verb (ing)  +  Compl  ?

 

Ex:

She is reading a book

She is not (isn't) reading a book

Is she reading  book?

 

* The negation could be contracted in this way (isn't - Aren't) but the recoomendation is to put them separately, because it is more formal.

Exceptions

* When a verb has only one syllable and a vowel is after a consonant and before a last consonant, the last consonant is doubled (Run = Running; Dig = Digging; Swim= Swimming)

Existen 2 maneras para mencionar la hora, una formal y otra informal. La más sencilla es la informal, porque solo se necesita mencionar # de hora y luego el # de minutos, algo así:

04:15 pm = it's four fifteen pm.

Pero la manera formal es un poco más larga, dentro de este modo se tienen varias opciones, ahora veremos los pasos para la primera.

1. Es necesario comenzar siempre con  "it is" y luego el resto.

2. Primero se debe mencionar el # de minutos, luego una palabra clave y entonces la hora.

ex: 5:48 = it is forty-eight minutes past five.

3.2.  To es normalmente usado entre los minutos 31 y 59. cuando use el Tes necesario decir los minutos que faltan para la siguiente hora, y luego la siguiente hora.

ex: 6:52: it is eight minutes to seven

3.2.1. Si se desea se pueden mencionar "to" para todos los minutos, pero se debe calcular los minutos restantes para la siguiente hora y luego la siguiente hora.

04:15 pm = it's four fifteen pm.

But the formal is a little bit longer, inside this manner you have many options, now we are going to see the steps for the first one:

1. it is necessary to start with "it is" and after the rest.

2. you must say the # minutes first, after a key word and then the hour

3.2. To is normally used between the minute 31 until the 59. when you use "to" it's necessary to say the minutes left for the next hour, and then the next hour.

ex: 6:52: it is eight minutes to seven

3.2.1. If you want you can use "to" for all the minutes, but you have to calculate the minutes left for the next hour and the next hour.

El futuro simple es básicamente para mencionar acciones que van a ocurrir en el futuro. Es simple porque solo necesitamos mencionar un pronombre (sujeto), la acción (verbo) y el complemento (objeto). WILL es el verbo modal que es usado en este tiempo gramatical, él puede ir perfectamente con todos los pronombres. Will como verbo modal no tiene significado, su función es transformar el verbo en su conjugación futura.

 

                            Will

He                     It                      We                       They

           She                         I                    You      

 

Estructuras:

(+) Subject  +  Will  +  Verb  +  Compl

(-) Subject  +  Will  +  not  +  Verb  +  Compl

(?) Will +  Subject +  Verb  +  Compl ?

 

Ex:

 

You will drink an orange juice

You will not (won't) drink an orange juice

Will you drink an orange juice?

 

para la negación usted puede contraer el verbo modal junto a la negación de esta manera  WON'T; pero la recomendación es ponerlos por separado  WILL NOT; en escritos formales sí es necesario ponerlos por separado. Todo depende de su propia decisión.

The future simple is basicaly for metioning the actions that are going to happen in the furure. It is simple because we only need to mention the pronoun (subject) the action (verb) and the object (complement). WILL is the modal verb that is used in this grammar tense, it perfectly fits with all the personal pronouns. Will as a modal verb doesnt have a meaning, its function is to turn the main verb into its future form.

 

                                              Will

He                     It                      We                       They

           She                         I                    You      

 

Structures:

(+) Subject  +  Will  +  Verb  +  Compl

(-) Subject  +  Will  +  not  +  Verb  +  Compl

(?) Will +  Subject +  Verb  +  Compl ?

 

Ex:

 

You will drink an orange juice

You will not (won't) drink an orange juice

Will you drink an orange juice?

 

*for the negative you can contract the modal verb and the negation in this way  WON'T but the recomendation is to put them separately  WILL NOT; in formal writing it is necessary to put them separately. All depends on your decition.
