This Spanish Easy Review grammar quiz will take a first look at 'er' verbs. Spanish has three different kinds of base verbs. A base verb has the word 'to' before it. For example, 'to speak', 'to call' and 'to read'. Although verbs are action words, a base verb only tells you what the action is to be. It does not tell you when the action is to take place, in the past, in the present or in the future. In order for that to occur, the verb needs to be conjugated but that will take place in several separate quizzes. For this quiz you will only be dealing with the base verb.
Spanish, again, has three base verbs, ar, er and ir verbs.
This quiz is going to focus solely on some of the er verbs. This means verbs that will end in er. The following list will get you started on learning and/or reviewing these er verbs.
|English||Spanish||Pronounced (Phonetically) As|
|to sweep||barrer||bă-rreer (Use the tongue to roll the 'r' sound.)|
|to run||correr||cŏr-rreer (Use the tongue to roll the 'r' sound.)|
|to make, to do||hacer||ă-ceer (Notice that the 'h' is silent.)|
Once you have memorized each of these verbs, as well as practiced how they phonetically sound, move on to the quiz section. The quiz section has ten sentences with a base verb that is capitalized. For each capitalized base verb, see if you can locate the correct Spanish base verb that matches it.
