In this Spanish conjugation lesson we are going to learn how to conjugate the verb adorar in the Condicional Perfecto tense of the Indicativo mood. It means we will see step by step how to create and translate forms of each grammatical person.

How to translate Condicional Perfecto to English

Notice that the English phrases provided below next to each conjugation are not direct translations from Spanish to English. They are usually the closest general equivalents. The example differences are:
  • In Spanish conjugation, there is the form usted in the third person singular. But this person does not translate to the English third person singular. It translates to the so called formal you and uses the inflected form which is most often represented as he/she/it in English conjugation charts.
  • Similar situation happens in the third person plural, where ustedes translates to the English plural formal you but uses the form which corresponds to the they form in English.
  • Tenses are used differently in Spanish and English, so the actual translation should always take into account the context and focus on translating the meaning, not just words.
  • In both languages each verb may have multiple meanings and not every meaning translates directly to the other language. Here also, the context and focusing on the particular meaning helps to create the most accurate translation.


Step by step instructions

Condicional Perfecto is a compound tense (Spanish: compuesto). It means that all of its inflected forms consist of two words. In Spanish language, there are also simple tenses, where each conjugated verb form is one word long.

A compound tense is indicated by the ending of the auxiliary verb, not by the ending of the main verb, which is the case in Spanish simple tenses.In the compound tenses, every person’s form consist of two parts:
  • An inflected form of the auxiliary verb haber. In case of the Condicional Perfecto de Indicativo tense, we use the Condicional Simple de Indicativo (Conditional) conjugation of haber
  • Past Participle, which is always the same in every compound tense for a given verb
Refer to the conjugation charts and this haber conjugation lesson to learn how to conjugate the auxiliary verb haber. That’s a separate topic, so for brevity we’re focusing on the parts derived from adorar only here.In order to create the Participio form, we need a stem and an ending. We use the stem of the infinitive of the main verb, and a single ending, which depends on the conjugation group of the main verb. So we have to start by splitting the infinitive into a stem and an ending. It’s really easy to do – just remove two letters from the end of the infinitive to get the ending – one of -ar, -er, -ir. What’s left is the stem.So in case of our verb:
  • the stem is: ador-
  • and the ending is: -ar
Based on the ending of the infinitive we can tell that adorar belongs to the -ar verb group. This group, in turn, uses the -ado ending in its Participio form. Putting all that together, our Participio is: adorado.

And now, as we understand how both parts used by this tense are created separately, we can move on with creating the final conjugation forms.
In order to create the first person singular form, we need to take the first person singular form of haber conjugated in Condicional Simple de Indicativo, which is habría. To that we add the Participio adorado to get habría adorado:
  • yo habría adorado – I would have adored
Next, to create the form for the second person singular, we again simply take the second person singular form of haber from the Condicional Simple de Indicativo tense, and it is habrías. To this auxiliary verb we add the Participio adorado (so the exact same word as previously) to get habrías adorado:
  • tú habrías adorado – you would have adored
Similarly, if we want to create the form for the third person singular, we conjugate haber in the Condicional tense and we use the corresponding person’s form (third person singular), namely habría. Then we also take the same Participio as for all other persons, and putting them together we get habría adorado:
  • él habría adorado – he would have adored
  • ella habría adorado – she would have adored
  • usted habría adorado – (formal) you would have adored
The first person plural has the form habríamos adorado. It’s created by following the same logic as in the other persons. We first take the form of the first person plural from haber conjugation in the Condicional Simple de Indicativo tense: habríamos. Second, to this word we again add the Participio of adorar: adorado to get habríamos adorado:
  • nosotros habríamos adorado – we would have adored
  • nosotras habríamos adorado – (feminine) we would have adored
Again, let’s do the same for the second person plural. We have to get the inflected form of the verb haber in the Condicional Simple de Indicativo tense, second person plural, and that’s habríais. Next, we take our unchanged Participio, we join them, and we get habríais adorado:
  • vosotros habríais adorado – (plural) you would have adored
  • vosotras habríais adorado – (feminine, plural) you would have adored
And finally, the last grammatical person on the list, the third person plural, has the form habrían adorado. We create it in the exact same manner as in all the other grammatical persons. We need the third person plural of haber first, from its Condicional conjugation. It is habrían. We add the Participio of adorar again (adorado) to get habrían adorado:
  • ellos habrían adorado – they would have adored
  • ellas habrían adorado – (feminine) they would have adored
  • ustedes habrían adorado – (formal, plural) you would have adored

Hurray! The conjugation is now done. The final result looks as follows:

yohabría adoradoI would have adored
habrías adoradoyou would have adored
él/ella/ustedhabría adoradohe/she/it would have adored
nosotros/nosotrashabríamos adoradowe would have adored
vosotros/vosotrashabríais adoradoyou would have adored
ellos/ellas/ustedeshabrían adoradothey would have adored
