01 Present Tense – Querer (to want)

Hola. In this video lesson, we’re going to cover the verb querer (to want).

Notice that in this video I only really discuss the verb meaning ‘to want’ but it could also be used as ‘to love’ with people and pets.

Juan quiere a sus padres. – Juan loves his parents.
Ellos quieren a sus gatos. – They love their cats.
(Yo) Te quiero. – I love you.

    Great video, it is the first time I visit your site, great work.

  3. Sometimes, though fortunately not often, you put in a short phrase that you don’t translate, and no matter how many ways I try to look it up in the Spanish part of the dictionary, I can’t figure out the meaning. In this video, you say something that sounds phonetically like: “kaytokah” or maybe “taytokah.” Here’s another one: “taycordas,” which you say near the beginning.

  4. Sorry about that…. ¿Te acuerdas? means “do you remember?”

    “Te toca” or “es tu turno” mean “it’s your turn”
