  1. Do you PREFER traditional or modern art?
    The capitalized verb in this sentence is a present tense verb and the pronoun of 'you' has been given. As you do not know who 'you' is you default to the singular/formal form. In Spanish that is usted. The Spanish present tense verb for 'you prefer' is prefiere. It is an IR verb and in this instance it is also an irregular verb.
  2. How much do I OWE you for the takeaway?
    Here again the capitalized verb is a present tense verb. This time the given pronoun is I. The Spanish present tenses verb for 'I owe' is debo. It is an ER verb.
  3. He had to BALANCE very carefully.
    In this sentence, as the preposition word of 'to' appears before the capitalized verb you know that it means that the verb should appear in its base form. The Spanish base word for 'to balance' is equilibrar. It is an AR verb.
  4. He HUNTED high and low until he found the odd socks!
    As the verb in this sentence ends with the letters of 'ed' you know it is a past tense verb. The pronoun of he has been given. Therefore, the Spanish past tense verb for 'he hunted' is cazó. It is an AR verb.
  5. I COMPEL you to hear my side of the story.
    The capitalized verb in this sentence is a present tense verb and the pronoun of I has been given. The Spanish present tense verb for 'I compel' is compelo. It is an ER verb.
  6. They were RIDING the waves.
    In this sentence the capitalized verb ends in with the letters of 'ing' making it a gerund. It is also proceeded by the past tense 'to be' verb. This tells us that 'riding' is a gerund and progressive verb. The Spanish gerund for 'riding' is montando. It is an AR verb.
  7. The committee said they will CONSIDER his application.
    Here you have a capitalized verb with the word of 'will' before it. This tells you it is a future tense verb. The pronoun of they is given. The Spanish future tense verb for 'they will consider' is considerarán. It is an AR verb.
  8. Look up at the birds SOARING in the sky.
    In this sentence the capitalized verb ends in with the letters of 'ing' making it a gerund. Although you do not see the 'to be' verb, it is understood as the thought is that 'the birds are soaring'. The Spanish gerund for 'soaring' is elevando. It is an AR verb.
  9. Let’s PRETEND to be detectives today!
    The capitalized verb in this sentence is a present tense verb. The word 'let’s' is the conjunction of 'let us'. The pronoun that can replace 'us' is 'we'. Therefore, the Spanish present tense verb for 'we pretend' is pretendemos.
  10. Each year the family loves to see the Christmas lights TWINKLE.
    The capitalized verb in this sentence is in the present tense. Next you need to see the object or subject of that verb. It is Christmas lights. Now determine the pronoun that can replace that and it would be they. The Spanish present tense verb for 'they twinkle' is brillan.
