Morado Homework Class 1
Lesson: The Future Tense The future tense (expressing that something "will" happen) for regular verbs if formed as follows: add the following endings to the complete,
unadulterated infinitive: -é -ás -á -emos -án So, for example, the verb HABLAR in the future tense looks like this: hablaré hablarás hablará hablaremos hablarán Assignment Write a page, duble spaced, about what has happened in your lifetime as if it hasn't happened yet.

Morado Homework Class 2
Lesson: Irregular verbs in the future tense: CABER, HABER, SABER, PODER, QUERER These verbs use the same endings as regular future tense verbs -é -ás -á -emos -án But instead of retaining the whole infinitive as the root, the E in the ER ending is dropped. For example: sabré sabrás sabrá sabremos sabrán By the way, CABER means to fit as in: Todos estos libros no cabrán en la bolsa. (All these books won't fit in the bag.) It does NOT mean "fit" as in "These shoes don't fit me." HABER is used principally in two ways: 1. To mean "there is" or "there are" (HAY in the present). In this sense, HABER has only one form in the future tense: HABRÁ (there will be). It
doesn't matter if what there will be is singular or plural. 2. As the helping verb in the "perfect" tenses. For example: HE viajado a Arizona dos veces. (I have traveled to Arizona twice.) En mayo, habré viajado a Arizona tres veces. (In May, I will have traveled to Arizona three times.) Assignment Write a page, double spaced, about what you think will happen in your life during the next week. Include the verbs CABER, HABER, SABER, PODER, and QUERER.

Lesson: Preterite Tense: Irregular Verbs: DECIR, HACER, QUERER and VENIR The PRETERITE TENSE is essentially the simple past. Examples: Hablé con mi hermana ayer.

Morado Homework Class 6
Lesson: Preterite Tense: Irregular Verbs: PONER PODER, TENER, SABER These verbs are irregular in the preterite AND three of them (PODER, TENER, and SABER) actually have a distinctive meaning in the preterite from the their meaning in the present. PONER puse pusimos pusiste puso pusieron PODER* pude pudimos pudiste pudo pudieron *In the present indicative, PODER means "to be able" or "can." In the preterite, PODER means "to succeed in doing something" or, in the
negative, "to fail." It expresses more the effect of circumstances than one's innate ability. Example: Traté de abrir la puerta pero no
pude. (I tried to open the door, but I couldn't.) TENER** tuve tuvimos tuviste tuvo tuvieron **In the present indicative, TENER means "to have." In the preterite, TENER means "to receive" or "to get." It expresses the moment when
possession begins. Example: Ayer tuve una carta de mi abuela. (Yesterday I got a letter from my grandma.) SABER*** supe supimos supiste supo supieron ***In the present indicative, SABER means "to know." In the preterite, SABER means "to find out" or "to discover." It expresses the moment
when knowing begins. Example: No fue hasta esta mañana que dupe que mis diamantes eran falsos. (It wasn't until this morning that I
found out that my diamonds were fake.) Assignment 1. Write out these verbs in their complete conjugation until you can do it from memory. 2. Write a story inspired by these verbs. Something that takes place in the past of course. Use the verbs in the preterite as much as possible.

ESTAR estuve estuvimos estuviste estuvo estuvieron ANDAR anduve anduviste anduviste anduvo anduvieron Note: ANDAR, whether preterite or not, means more than most students know.

(The car's in the shop, so today I'm going by bus.) 2. to function Example: El carro no anda bien, por eso está en el taller. (The car's not working well, that's why it's in the shop.) 3. to wander Example: Ayer anduvimos en el parque por dos horas. (Yesterday we wandered around the park for two hours.) 4. to wear Example: Ayer anduve una corbata porque tuve una entrevista. (Yesterday I work a tie because I had an interview.) 5. to have something on your person Example: Ayer no pude comprar café porque no andaba suficiente dinero.
