What is the first thing you learn when you look up a verb in a dictionary?
Of course, it is the meaning of the verb.
But a good dictionary helps us learn much more than that.
If you would like to be able to use a verb in a sentence correctly, you need to apply some grammar rules.
And many grammar rules relating to Spanish verbs are based on the knowledge of the following points.
Use your dictionary more effectively to answer the following questions, when you come across a new verb next time. Because when you know the answers of these questions, you will start applying the grammar rules with confidence and your sentences in Spanish will sound better.
Here they are
1. Is it regular or irregular?
2. Is it reflexive?
If not, is there a version of it which is reflexive?
3. Is it used with or without preposition?
4. Is it transitive or intransitive? That means if it can take an object or not.
5. Is it a verb like interesar or can you conjugate it as the majority of the Spanish verbs?
6. Does it appear in some fixed expressions which are so common that you need to memorize them?
