VERBOS DOBLES
HOW TO USE TWO VERBS IN A SENTENCE
VERBOS DOBLES
• There are 4 ways to
make sentences that
use multiple verbs.
• We will mostly be
using three of them
• 1. conjugated verb
followed by infinitive
verb.
• 2. tener (conj.) + que
+ infinitive verb
• 3. Ir (conj.) + a +
infinitive.
• Sentences using
dependent and
independent clauses
WHAT’S AN INFINITIVE?
Conjugated verb
Infinitive verb
• Conjugated verbs
combine a person with
an action.
• Yo como = I eat
• Tú vas = you go
• Estudiamos = we study
• An action all by itself.
• An unconjugated verb.
• A verb at it’s starting
point.
• Always ends with either
–ar, -er, -ir.
• Comer = to eat
• Ir = to go
• Estudiar =to study
VERBOS DOBLES
• CONJUGATED VERB + INFINITIVE VERB.
Necesito comer la cena.
I need to eat diner.
Debes hacer la tarea.

Preferimos correr a la escuela
We prefer to run to school
PAUSA
• Discuss with a partner 3 important details we have
learned so far.
• Come up with a question for each of the details to
write in your notes.
TENER + QUE + INFINITIVE.
• Used to express obligation or need to do something
• Tener is conjugated.
• Tengo que estudiar = I have to study.
• ¿Qué tienes que hacer? = what do you have to
do?
• Ella tiene que prestar atención. = she has to pay
attention.
• ¡Tenemos que bailar! = we have to dance!
*note there is no stem-change in nosotros
IR + A + INFINITIVE
• Used to express actions in the immediate future.
• Used to express what is “going to happen”
• Voy a comprar un libro = I’m going to buy a book
• Vamos a nadar en la piscina. =
We are going to swim in the pool.
Ellos van a mirar una película. = they are going to
watch a movie.
*note the ‘a’ doesn’t show up in the English
translation, but it is necessary in Spanish
DEPENDENT/INDEPENDENT CLAUSES
• You can use two conjugated verbs in a sentence, but
they must be used in dependent and independent
clauses.
• Cuando voy a mi casa yo hablo con mi hermano.
When I go to my house I speak with my brother.
Cuando voy a mi casa = dependent clause
Yo hablo con mi hermano = independent clause
• Cuando mi amiga habla, yo escucho.
When my friend speaks, I listen.
*note that the subject does not have to be the same
when conjugating verbs for dependent and independent
clauses.
