  Spanish Tips and Things to Keep in Mind

  The object (like another person's name) can come before a verb.  For example; if you wanted to say "I love you" in Spanish, you would say "Te amo".  "Amo" in this case means "I love".  You don't say "Yo" (I) in front of it or in it, because it's already in there.

  When asking a question in Spanish, there's no difference in the word order of the sentence if you were saying something happened or asking if it'll happen.  You'll know they're asking a question by the tone of their voice.

  To make a negative type of sentence, you put the word "no" in front of the verb.  For example:  No vivo en España = I don't live in Spain.

  When you have an adjective (a word that's used to describe or modify a noun or pronoun) in a sentence, it goes after the noun.  Example:  Carro azul = blue truck.

  All of the nouns (a noun is a person, place or thing) are either feminine or masculine.  When you use an adjective, it must usually (but not all the time) be similar in gender to the noun.  For the most part, a masculine adjective ends with an o, and a feminine ends with an a.

  Some that don't match up are:  El sistema = system.  El programa = program.  La mano = hand.  La foto= photo.  El mapa = map.

  Supposedly, all the "romantic languages" (which means they come from Rome where the main language was Latin, so they're all from Latin) like French, Italian and Spanish have this male / female thing with nouns.  English itself has a lot of Latin words in it like equator, pole, peninsula, latitude and longitude, as well as some Greek, but the roots of English are mostly Germanic.

  Spanish only has one way to pronounce a vowel.  So, once you get them down, you've got it.  :-)  You don't have to change them because they're near certain other letters in a word, like you do with English.
