Grammar - Verbs - Base, Past, Present or Future
How well do you know the past, present and future forms of Spanish verbs, like 'concentrar' (to concentrate)?

Grammar - Verbs - Base, Past, Present or Future

In this Spanish Difficult Review quiz you will be testing your skill on recognizing the form and tenses of a verb. You will be looking out to see if the verb is in its base form or if it has been translated in the past, present or future.

To add a little more depth to the quiz, you will need to learn four new verbs. Those verbs are: to collect, to concentrate, to gather/to meet and to manage. You will only be shown the irregular conjugations of these verbs (if any), not where they are conjugated according to the normal rules.

Again, the quiz will test you on knowing whether a verb in a sentence is a base form verb, a present tense verb, a past tense verb or a future tense verb. All of the sentences are in Spanish and no words have been all capitalized. You are simply to decide which verb tense is used in the sentence. Simple enough, right! Now let’s look at the four new verbs and, with these four verbs, your verb bank should be right around 250 verbs at your disposal.

COLECCIONAR (to collet): [It is regular in all 3 tenses.]

CONCENTRAR (to concentrate): [It is regular in all 3 tenses.]

REUNIR (to gather / to meet):

  • Present Tense: (yo) reúno; (tú) reúnes; (él/ella/usted/lo) reúne; (nosotros/as) reunimos; (vosotros/as) reunís; (ellos/ellas/ustedes/los) reúnen

DIRIGIR (to manage / to direct / to lead):

  • Present Tense: (yo) dirijo; (tú) diriges; (él/ella/usted/lo) dirige; (nosotros/as) dirigimos; (vosotros/as) dirigís; (ellos/ellas/ustedes/los) dirigen

Again, read the Spanish sentences and then determine which verb form/tense is used with each sentence.
