English loose ends (cabos sueltos) and review: Lesson 1
Lesson 1: would
You already know "would like"
Etc, Etc. Let’s practise this:
These endings ría/rías/ríamos/etc are a tense (tiempo) in Spanish. To say this in English we don’t have a tense. Remember English verbs are very boring and we use auxiliaries to do almost everything! In this case, we use the modal verb "would" in English. Let’s practise:
Did you remember to use don’t have and not haven’t here? Remember that have is a verb here and not an auxiliary!
This time have is an auxiliary ha ha! Did you remember to use yet at the end of the clause?

Remember if you don’t mention the person, you use say, if you mention the person, you use tell.
