How to Give Instructions in Spanish

Give Formal Instructions in Spanish

In this video, we are talking about how to give instructions in Spanish. We will explore this by exploring 10 ways to be hated.

To give instructions in Spanish you have two options. The informal way and the formal way. For this lesson, we are going to focus on the formal way to give instructions in Spanish. First, you will start with a verb and to transform it into an instruction you would conjugate the verb for “yo” and take away the “o”.

Then depending on the root of the verb, you will add either an “a” or “e”. For verbs that end in -er or -ir you will take away the “o” and add an “a”. Then for verbs that end in -ar you will take away the “o” and add an “e”. Check out these examples.

These verbs all have ER or IR endings
Verb -Conjugate for yo – Take away the “o” – Add an “a”
Correr – Corro – Corr – Corra
Pedir – Pido – Pid – Pida
Escupir – Escupo – Escup – Escupa

Now let’s take a look at verbs that end in AR.
Verb -Conjugate for yo – Take away the “o” – Add an “e”
Caminar – Camino – Camin – Camine
Hablar – Hablo – Habl – Hable
Manejar – Manejo – Manej – Maneje
