Repasemos:  Saquen los "verb charts" para un repaso de los verbos


"PERFECT" TENSES: 
What is a participle?  When do we need it?  
hablar – ar + ado = hablado

comer – er + ido = comido

vivir – ir + ido = vivido

The following common verbs have irregular past participles:
  • abrir (to open) – abierto (open)
  • cubrir (to cover) – cubierto (covered)
  • decir (to say) – dicho (said)
  • escribir (to write) – escrito (written)
  • freír (to fry) – frito (fried)
  • hacer (to do) – hecho (done)
  • morir (to die) – muerto (dead)
  • poner (to put) – puesto (put)
  • resolver (to resolve) – resuelto (resolved)
  • romper (to break) – roto (broken)
  • ver (to see) – visto (seen)
  • volver (to return) – vuelto (returned)


How do we construct the perfect tenses in English?  It's almost the same in Spanish!

English:  "to have" + participle;
I have seen the light.
She had finished her cake already.
We would have cleaned the mess, but my mom already had done it.

Spanish: "haber" + participio
Yo he visto la luz.
Ella ya había terminado su pastel.
Habríamos limpiado el desorden, pero mi mama ya lo había hecho.
