Instructor:
The present tense is used in Spanish in several different ways. One, it can beused to indicate an action in progress. For example:
Male:
Yo hablo español ahora.
Instructor:
Which means: “I am speaking Spanish now.”
Instructor:
Two, the present tense can be used to show something that is donecontinuously or ongoing. For example:
Male:
Nosotros hablamos español todo el tiempo.
Instructor:
Which means: “We speak Spanish all the time.”
Instructor:
Three, unlike in English, in Spanish you can use the present tense for anaction that will be done in the future. For example:
Female:
Esta noche, ella habla español en la clase.
Instructor:
Which means: “Tonight, she will speak Spanish in the class.”
Instructor:
Let’s begin by learning to use the verb “hablar” in the present tense.“Hablar” means to speak.
Instructor:
This is how to say the verb "to speak". Listen and repeat.
Female:
Hablar. Hablar.
Instructor:
Again, how do you say "to speak"?
Female:
Hablar. Hablar.
Instructor:
Did you make sure that you made your response before the recordedspeaker? And did you repeat after the recorded speaker? This is how to say “I speak.”Listen and repeat.
Male:
Hablo. Yo hablo.
Instructor:
How do you say “I speak”?

Hablo. Yo hablo.

Can you guess which word means “I”?

Instructor:
It is not always necessary to use the word “yo” or “I” in Spanish. “Yo” isusually used for clarity or emphasis.
Instructor:
Again: How do you say “I speak”?
Male:
Hablo. Yo hablo.
Instructor:
Make sure that you imitate the pronunciation of the recorded speaker. Thisis how to say “you speak.” Listen and repeat.
Female:
Hablas. Tú hablas.
Instructor:
How do you say “you speak”?
Female:
Hablas. Tú hablas.
Instructor:
Can you guess which word means “You”?
Female:
Tú. Tú.
Instructor:
It is also not always necessary to use the word “tú” in Spanish. “Tú” isusually used for clarity or emphasis.
Instructor:
Again, how do you say “you speak”?
Male:
Hablas. Tú hablas.
Instructor:
Now say “I speak.”
Male:
Hablo. Yo hablo.
Instructor:
And how do you say “you speak”?
Male:
Hablas. Tú hablas.
Instructor:
There are also two ways to say “you” in Spanish. “Tú” is the familiar or informal way of saying you. And “usted” is the polite or formal way of saying you.If you are not sure when to use “tú” or “usted,” here’s a good rule of thumb. Use “tú”when speaking to someone who you would normally address by their first name. Anduse “usted” when speaking to someone who you would normally address by Mr. or Mrs.
Instructor:
Considering that the objective of this course is to teach you informal, spokenSpanish. Unless instructed to do otherwise, in this course you will use “tú,” the informalword for “you.”
