Season 2 – Lesson 15 – Coffee Break Spanish

Coming up in this lesson:

We’ll be continuing our study of the preterite tense in this week’s lesson and it’s time to take a look at some irregular verbs: hacer, ir, ver and dar in the preterite, so that you can talk about what you did, where you went, what you saw and more in the past.

Please note that lesson 15 of Season 2 was originally known as lesson 215 of Coffee Break Spanish. We have renumbered the lessons of each season as lessons 1-40 to make things more simple for our listeners.

    My dictionary says “dar” isn’t reflexive. Surely some mistake has been made…? I thought about it and actually the idea of “dar” being a reflexive verb doesn’t seem to make sense to me and now I’m all confused. Cause, I mean, you couldn’t say “I gave himself a book”…right? :S

      Su diccionario es correcto. Pero nadie está hablando de los verbos reflexivos. En esta lección, el verbo “Dar” se utiliza como un objeto indirecto. “Él me dio el libro”. Pregunta. “¿A quién le da el libro?” “Él dio el libro a mí”. Menos confundido? Un ejemplo con un verbo reflexivo: Lavarse: I washed myself – Me lavé.

      We had a problem earlier today which meant the podcast players were not showing on the site. This has now been rectified.
