If you learn Spanish as a second language, then you will want to start with a Spanish worksheet that includes the past participle. In fact, most Spanish speaking native speakers would not use any other form of tenses or forms for verbs.
The past participle, also known as the modal form, is the word “present” with the infinitive replaced by an English verb. It is one of the easiest forms of the verb to learn.
Using the past participle in writing is one of the most commonly used phrases in all Spanish-English conversations. The phrase that often accompanies this form of the verb is “very old”. For example, “Jaime es vuelta, pero vosotrosos, pero amor, pero amore.”
For those who are unfamiliar with the concept of past participle tenses, it can be hard to keep up with what is being said. However, when you hear someone say something like, “Well, now I’m very old, but I love to go shopping, but, now that you mention it, I’d rather stay home and watch TV,” then it should become fairly clear what is being said.
The reason why it is difficult to use the past participle in English is because there is no need to do so. The subject is always used to connect the “I” in the verb, and the subject of the sentence can just be said by itself. In English, the subject of the sentence is always connected to the verb, and while this sometimes makes for a better story or a better sentence, it just doesn’t work in Spanish.
Even though the past participle tenses are an important part of the verb, it is wise to avoid them as much as possible. Even though some people say things like, “I am tired, now, so I am very tired,” and “I’m feeling very hungry, now, so I’ll eat more”, Spanish speakers are not really going to understand what is being said here. What is being said is, “I am tired now, and I will eat a lot more later.”
Use the present tense whenever you have a statement like this; “I am tired, and I will eat a lot more later.” This way, you make it clear what you want to convey.
Learning how to use the past participle tenses is a good skill to have in your bag of tricks. No other form of tense is required when you are learning Spanish, so you can learn to use this form as quickly as possible. And, once you have mastered it, then you can move on to other forms of the verb, as well.
