Tip of the month. Spanish Relative Pronoun



This Spanish pronoun is used in sentences like:

"El libro que estoy leyendo es interesante" (The book I am reading is interesting)

You can see the English translation of this sentence has no relative (that).

That is why English speakers think it is not necessary to use the Spanish "que" pronoun in Spanish. But that's not true. In Spanish, we must use it always. So omitting it wouldn't be good idea!

Look at these sentences:

  • John asks Ana to read the book.
    - Juan pide a Ana que lea el libro. (Correct)
    - Juan pide a Ana lea el libro (Wrong)


  • I think it is late.
    - Creo que es tarde. (Correct)
    - Creo es tarde. (Wrong)
So, remember, never omit the Spanish relative pronoun 'que'

Hope this helps!
