Grammar is usually the most unpleasant part of learning a language – we have to obey rules that are often so different from those of our native tongue …
With our explanations, we want to make Spanish grammar less intimidating. The rules are kept straight-forward and everything is explained as simply as possible. And with our exercises, you can practise and deepen your knowledge of Spanish grammar.
In most cases, the use of Spanish tenses is not that different from the use of English tenses. One of the most difficult things about Spanish tenses is that the verb conjugation changes for each person – there is a different ending for I, you, he, etc.
Here you will find information on the use of ser and estar as well as on the Spanish gerund, participles, modal verbs, reflexive verbs, passive voice, imperative and subjunctive. The different tenses are explained in the section called "Tenses".
Adjectives tell us about the character or attributes of a person or thing (e.g. bueno, rápido). Spanish adjectives also have comparative forms, and depending on the noun, they have either a male or female ending.
Prepositions are short words (e.g. en, sobre) that we use with a noun or pronoun. As prepositions cannot be translated 1:1, even advanced learners of Spanish sometimes have problems using them correctly.
