Grammar - Verbs 2K Run!

This Spanish Medium Review quiz will take an athletic approach to conjugating verbs. First up, a verbs 2K run! To begin, learning to conjugate verbs is probably the hardest part about learning Spanish, especially so at the very beginning. Here in the Spanish Medium Review series of quizzes you are getting hit with not only a large number of new verbs but with being able to conjugate those verbs in both the present and the past tense. It’s almost enough to pull your hair out. Please don’t. Take a deep breath and you will get through all of the verbs – one at a time.

Because there are so many verbs and ways to conjugate them, there are many quizzes throughout this series that will focus on those verbs. The nouns, adjectives, adverbs, definite articles, indefinite article, etc. fall into place pretty nicely and we want to be able to use them with all of those verbs. Therefore, as stated above, this will be the first quiz in a series of athletic verb quizzes. It will be the easiest as there will be fewer verbs to work with. The other quizzes in this athletic series will include Grammar: Verbs Marathon!, Grammar: Verbs Triathlon! and Grammar: Verbs Olympics!.

Each quiz in this athletic series will provide you with more and more Spanish verbs to study and conjugate. If a verb is regular in either the present tense or the past tense, you will not be provided with its conjugation. You will only be provided with the verb’s conjugation when it is an irregular verb. Should any verb be regular in both present and past tenses – only the verb and its meaning is given – no conjugation will be shown as you should be able to easily conjugate regular verbs in both tenses at this point. If you do have difficulty, please go back and check out the verb conjugations in both the Spanish Easy Review quiz series, as well as here in the Spanish Medium Review quiz series. Now for your 2K run of verbs!
