PRE-INTERMEDIATE COURSE, SPRING 2018, CLASS 3
In this class we began studying the Continuous tense in Spanish
This is the equivalent of “I am doing”, “she is studying”, “we are working” in English.
To make this tense in Spanish we need two elements
Estar (estoy, estás, está, estamos, estáis, están)
Gerund (ending in -ando or -iendo)
To make the gerund…..
1. For AR verbs, take off the AR and add -ando.
2. For IR or ER verbs take off the ending and add -iendo
Estoy haciendo – I am doing…
Estoy hablando – I am talking….
Estamos escribiendo – we are writing….
