Grammar Matters

Hola Estudiantes,

Here you will find common grammar questions explained, so you can review them as often as needed.  Hope it helps 🙂

 

Grammar is important to write well. But language learning is more than grammar rules. 

Here is a quote from Maria from Why Not Spanish? 

“Learning Spanish shouldn’t be all about learning grammar.

In fact, grammar shouldn’t be the core of what you learn.

Instead, focus on common frequent expressions and what they mean in a context.

Then imitate it and use it yourself.”

What is the difference between Bien and Buen?
Bien is an adverb (meaning well) and buen is an adjective (meaning good)
– Lo hiciste bien. (You did it well)
Buen is used in from of a masculine noun, while bueno/a is used after the noun:
– Fue un buen viaje. (It was a good trip)
– El viaje fue bueno. (The trip was good)

As a general rule, adjectives generally go after the noun, and the sentence will have a more literal meaning. When coming before a noun, an adjective generally takes on a more figurative, poetic, or literary sense.

 

Below is a good chart to help you remember when to use the Spanish “To Be” verbs:  Ser and Estar.
