Spanish Verb Conjugation: Indicative Mood: Conditional Tense
Conditional Tense: Regular Verbs

©RCAguilar

OBJECTIVE:
Add the particle "would" or "wouldn't" (just add "no" in front of any verb form listed here) to your communicative ramblings.
TASK:
Work! ¡Trabajar! Arbeiten! Werk! Travailler!
PERPLEXED?
I don't care what anybody says, humans are NOT lazy by nature. If you have any sense of inquisitiveness, you'll master THIS !!!
What's hard about the conditional tense?
Nada - Nothing - Nichts - Rien - Niets - Niente - OK, ... I think you get it.
When dealing with situations in "if" circumstances in English, you generally FEEL your "I would!"
In Spanish, just learn to throw a real loud -ía at the end of any verb infinitive ... and FEEL the same thing.
Of course you need to make sure that your -ía form corresponds to how many people and exactly which form, etc.
Practice this form by going straight down the master verb lists, stating the entire infinitive and an -ía form at the end. Say the meaning in English, if you like - but FEEL the WOULD part of the meaning that you're attaching to the verb.
