With all the verbs, you need to use this chart for your subject. If you want to say he, you will not use l, you will use a l le. It may seem redundant; it is used for clarification. Conjugations

All 3 verbs are only conjugated into two forms the 3rd and 6th boxes. Example: Gustar conjugates only into gusta and gustan. As you learn different tenses, this still applies. X X Conjugations In order to conjugate the verb, you must figure out what is being liked (gustar),

what is being really liked (fascinar), or loved (encantar) Once you found the object, determine whether it is singular, plural, or an infinitive. 3rd box is used for singular objects and infinitives 6th box is used for plural objects Examples He likes the dogs. In Spanish, you have to think backwards: The dogs are pleasing to him.

First, you must go to the subject chart and find the phrase for he. A l le Now, figure out what is being liked. He likes what?... The dogs : los perros Dogs is plural, so you will use gustan. Think backwards. The object will always determine the singular or plural verb (using these special infinitives).

Put the phrases together, you get: A l le gustan los perros. A l le gustan los perros. Use gustan because the object is plural. The dogs please is what you are translating. Use a l is used to make sure the reader knows who le is referring to in the sentence. If you didnt have a l it could be she or you. The real person who likes the dogs is him. You insure that the reader

is not confused or mistakes the subject. Examples We love to sing in school. Who is our subject?... We nos We love what?... To sing: cantar Cantar is an infinitive, so you use the singular form of encantar: encanta

Nos encanta cantar en escuela. Nos encanta cantar en escuela. Use encanta because the object is singular. to sing is pleasing is what you are translating. Because with nos you can only refer back to nosotros, you dont always have to use a nosotros to insure that the reader is not confused or mistakes the subject. Practice 1.
