What are subject pronouns? How does one conjugate a verb, and what is a verb in it's infinitive form? What is subject/adjective agreement?
Subject pronouns in Spanish are a matter of memorization. I, you, he, she it, you (formal singular), we, you (friendly, plural, they (masculine and feminine) and you (formal plural) all serve to help us better understand how to conjugate a verb. All verbs, even irregular verbs do follow a pattern based on the subject pronoun, or 1st, 2nd, 3rd person singular or plural. Each verb begins in its infinitive form, which has yet to be conjugated, as in hablar, which means to talk, or ser, which means to be.
What is an author's purpose?
When writing, we need to know are purpose, or why we are writing. Are we writing to inform, persuade, narrate, or entertain? Understanding why we write and how to do so are critical to create meaningful and successful essays.
What is subject/verb agreement, and when is it used?
Subject/verb agreement sounds self-explanatory, as it is when both the subject and verb agree with one another. The singular subject, or perhaps 1st person singular, takes the 1st person singular form of a verb. We use subject/verb agreement when both speaking and writing.
