Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Eric: Hi everyone, I'm Eric.
Alex: And I'm Alex.
Eric: And welcome to Must-Know Spanish Sentence Structures, Season 1, Lesson 17. Giving Advice.
Eric: In this lesson, you'll learn how to use a sentence pattern for giving advice.
PATTERN
Eric: For example, "You should practice more often."
Alex: Deberías practicar más seguido.
Alex: [slow] Deberías practicar más seguido.
Eric: The pattern for giving advice has 3 elements. First, "You should."
Alex: Deberías.
Eric: Second, the verb in infinitive form "practice."
Alex: practicar.
Eric: Third, the complement "more often."
Alex: más seguido.
Eric: Altogether, we have... "You should practice more often."
Alex: Deberías practicar más seguido. [slow] Deberías practicar más seguido. [normal] Deberías practicar más seguido.
Eric: Start with the verb
Alex: deberías
Eric: meaning “you should.” This is a verb conjugated in the conditional form second person singular. Then, add a verb in its infinitive form followed by more details—a noun, adverb, or phrase.
Alex: Deberías practicar más seguido.
Eric: So remember: To give advice, start with the verb
Alex: deberías
Eric: add a verb in its infinitive form, and end with a complement.
Eric: Here’s another example meaning, "You should learn a new language." First, "You should."
Alex: Deberías.
Eric: Second, the verb in infinitive form "learn."
Alex: aprender.
Eric: Third, the complement "a new language."
Alex: un idioma nuevo.
Eric: Altogether we have...
Alex: Deberías aprender un idioma nuevo. [slow] Deberías aprender un idioma nuevo. [normal] Deberías aprender un idioma nuevo.
Eric: "You should learn a new language."
[pause]
Alex: Deberías aprender un idioma nuevo.
Eric: How do you say - "You should go running with me." To give you a hint, "running with me" is...
Alex: correr conmigo. [slow] correr conmigo. [normal] correr conmigo.
Eric: "You should go running with me."
[pause]
Alex: Deberías ir a correr conmigo. [slow] Deberías ir a correr conmigo. [normal] Deberías ir a correr conmigo.
[pause]
Alex: Deberías ir a correr conmigo.
REVIEW
Eric: Let's review the sentences from this lesson. I’ll give you the English equivalent of the phrase, and you’re responsible for shouting it out loud in Spanish. Here we go.
Eric: "You should practice more often."
[pause]
Alex: Deberías practicar más seguido.
[pause]
Alex: Deberías practicar más seguido.
Eric: "You should learn a new language."
[pause]
Alex: Deberías aprender un idioma nuevo.
[pause]
Alex: Deberías aprender un idioma nuevo.
Eric: "You should go running with me."
[pause]
Alex: Deberías ir a correr conmigo.
[pause]
Alex: Deberías ir a correr conmigo.
OUTRO
Eric: Okay. That's all for this lesson. You learned a pattern for giving advice, as in...
Alex: Deberías practicar más seguido.
Eric: meaning "You should practice more often."
Eric: You can find more vocab or phrases that go with this sentence pattern in the lesson notes. So please be sure to check them out on SpanishPod101.com. Thanks everyone, and see you next time!

Cual es la diferencia entre "no deberias de ir" y "no deberias ir"? el uso de "de" no existe en ingles, asi que esto me confunde.

Hola Steve,


Thank you for your comment.

First one is "you should practice more often" and the second one is "you must practice more often".

Let's keep practicing.
