Tip of the Month - 'Comiste' or 'Comistes'??


Have you ever heard or read about this?

Concretely, some people, when using the second person singular of the preterite tense, they add a final 's', and this is wrong.

Maybe, they make this mistake thinking all second singular persons take a final 's' when conjugating other tenses. For example: in present tense, the second person singular is 'tú hablas', or in future tense: 'tú hablarás'. So, the same way, they also add a final 's' for the second person singular of the preterite tense.

But I'll tell you again... this is wrong.

Here we have some examples:
Right:

Tú hablaste
Tú comiste
Tú fuiste
Tú pensaste
Wrong:

Tú hablastes
Tú comistes
Tú fuistes
Tú pensastes

See it?

Anyway, if you don't have clear ideas about this, or you need more information, please e-mail me, or post a message at the Spanish Language Forum.


Recommended material:
You can find below some materials / web pages that, from my point of view, can be useful and interesting:

Think Spanish Magazine I write monthly articles for 'Think Spanish' ('Piensa en espańol') about Spain, its culture, travel issues... But this magazine also covers all Latin American countries. Articles include a glossary. You can also listen to all the articles as they also publish a monthly CD.

Puerta del Sol - Audio Magazine A very interesting way of learning or reviewing not just Spanish grammar and vocabulary, but also a great way to find out about Spain and its culture.

Lo más TV Such a funny, intelligent and useful way to learn and enjoy the Spanish language!! It is a web based activity and offers new videos, on a weekly basis, with Spanish / English captions, dictionary and games.


Visual Link Spanish™ - Just click, listen and repeat! Don't just learn Spanish; put it into practice with a unique guided, step-by-step system. I've tested it and I wish I'd had something similar when I studied English!!
