How to translate Condicional to English

Note that the English phrases in the third column of the above conjugation table are not direct translations from Spanish to English. They are usually the closest general equivalents. The example differences are:
  • In Spanish, 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 belongs to the simple tenses group, which means that all of its conjugated forms are one word long. There are also compound (compuesto) tenses in Spanish language, where each inflected verb form consists of two words.

The verb aprender has an entirely regular conjugation in the Condicional tense of the Indicativo mood. It means this verb just follows the general rules for its group (-er) without exceptions.

Use the infinitive aprender in each person.
Next, add to the infinitive the endings specific to each person.

Note both the shapes and colors of the letters. It will help you find patterns and make it easier to remember these endings.

Also note that in verb groups -er and -ir all the endings in both Pretéterito Imperfecto and Condicional tenses are the same. Good tip to remember! The only difference is that the Condicional uses the entire infinitive as the stem.

  • yo aprendería

Image of -ías And exactly as previously add the regular ending -ías for the second person singular to create aprenderías:
  • tú aprenderías

  • él aprendería
  • ella aprendería
  • usted aprendería
