Question:

What is an infinitive?

Inactive
Caitlin M.
Answer:

In Spanish, verbs in the infinitive end in -ar, -er, or -ir. Examples of infinitives in Spanish and their English translation can be found below. Hablar - To talk (-ar ending) Comer - To eat (-er ending) Vivir - To live (-ir ending) Llorar - To cry Decir - To say Mentir - To lie The infinitive is important, as by changing its ending we can create verbs in different tenses and with different subjects. For example, changing hablar (to talk) to hablaré (I will talk) allows us both to create a verb in the future tense and to indicate the person doing the talking. Looking for a verb in its infinitive form? Check the dictionary. If you look for 'eat' in an English-Spanish dictionary, you can find the infinitive 'comer'.

Question:

When do we use the conditional tense in French?

Answer:

The conditional tense in French is used to describe what you 'would' do. For example, the following sentences in English require the use of the conditional tense in French: (1) I would like to watch a film - J'aimerais regarder un film. (2) If I had the present, I would give it to you. - Si j'avais le cadeau, je te le donnerais. In example (2), 'I would give it to you' requires the use of the conditional tense, while 'If I had the present' requires the use of the imperfect tense. This is a common French construction and a common usage of the conditional tense: If + something were to happen (imperfect tense) + something would happen (conditional tense).

Answer:

The 15 sweets need to be shared between Jill and her two friends. This means the 15 sweets need to be shared between 3 people. 15/3 = 5. They each get five sweets.
