I've formulated a paragraph but I feel like I'm missing a few things. I'm not sure if this is correct in Spanish?

    Hoy, vengo de la escuela acaba de tomar un examen grande. Siempre es así mi semana es muy ocupada siempre tengo mucho que hacer. Los lunes, voy a la escuela y hago mucho tarea. A veces tengo que estudiar para un examen en mis clases. Los martes después de clases, me gusta nadar en el club y también me gusta hablar con mis amigos cuando ayo tienen tiempo. Los jueves, siempre tocar piano. Los viernes, me gusta ir al cine si mis padres me dan permiso. Los domingos, voy a la iglesia con mi familia, y siempre como es . Ahí está mi amigo Saoul. El viene de la heladeria acaba de comprar una helado y no me invitan.

    I have a question. This paragraph is what you've written out, using what you heard in a tape recording. Is that right?

    Yes. I believe I've written it down word for word. I know the story, "what you are doing" each day and "Saoul didn't share his ice cream". I understand it for the most part. However, there are a few words I can't make out. Otherwise, I've got it.

    The paragraph actually doesn't say anything about Saul not sharing his ice cream. Here, let me rewrite the paragraph for you, as it is spoken: ~~~~~~ Vengo de la escuela. Acabo de tomar un examen grande. Siempre es así Mi semana es muy ocupada. Siempre tengo mucho que hacer. Los lunes, voy a la escuela y hago mucho tarea. A veces tengo que estudiar para un examen en mis clases. Los martes después de clases, me gusta nadar en el club y también me gusta hablar con mis amigos, cuando ellos también tienen tiempo. Los jueves, siempre toco piano, y los viernes, me gusta ir al cine si mis padres me dan permiso. Los domingos, voy a la iglesia con mi familia, y siempre comemos juntos . Ahí está mi amigo Saoul. El viene de la heladeria. Acaba de comprar una helado y no me invitó. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I broke down the paragraph, made some grammar corrections, and put in some periods. ~~~~~~~~~~~ Here's the last sentence: "Acaba de comprar una helado y no me invitó." That means, "He has just bought ice cream, and he didn't invite me."

    Sorry, I made a very small mistake. In the 6th line of the paragraph, it should be MUCHA tarea. Not "mucho."

    Comemos juntos, eating together. That is precisely what I was missing.

    COMEMOS means WE EAT, and JUNTOS means TOGETHER. So, it means "We eat together."

    Oh, another small mistake: In the last line of the paragraph, it should say UN helado. Not una helado. Sorry, "helado" is masculine.

    Spanish conjugations is/are something I've always struggled with.

    I understand. If you like, you can give me a verb that you may not know how to conjugate. I can show you how, and explain as best as I can.

    Okay. First off, you may know that there are THREE kinds if endings, for Spanish verbs: AR ER IR NECESITAR is an AR verb. And so, we follow the AR rules, for conjugating it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Step 1: Take off the AR ending. Now we have NECESIT- ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Step 2: Add the correct ending onto the verb. Here are all the forms of NECESITAR depending on the form that we need: (Yo) Necesito --- (O) (Tú) Necesitas --- (AS) (Él/Ella/Usted) Necesita --- (A) (Nosotros) Necesitamos --- (AMOS) (Ellos/Ellas/Ustedes) Necesitan --- (AN) You see, I've shown the different endings that we can add onto NECESIT- in parentheses. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Whenever we conjugate AR verbs, we just take off the first two letters, and then add new endings onto them. The endings that we can add are, again... O AS A AMOS AN

    The same goes for HABLAR, you see. Because it's another AR verb.

    If I am referring to myself, I would use Necesito? Me llamo es Ruby; Necesito al hacer un viaje al supermercado.

    Yes, you would. You would say... "Me llamo Ruby. Necesito hacer un viaje al supermercado." We don't need to use "al" after "necesito."

    Do you know about the verb TENER?

    Yes exactly. I noticed that in your sentence, you were trying to say, "I need to make a trip to the supermarket." You COULD say "necesito." In Spanish, whenever we wanna say that something needs to be done, it's more common to use some form of TENER. Like, "Yo TENGO QUE hacer un viaje al supermercado."

    We most often use "necesito" when we say that we need some sort of item. Like... "Necesito ayuda." -- I need help. "Necesito agua." -- I need water.

    That makes sense. Tener is the irregular verb. Tengo would be the personal pronoun, referring to your own self. Tienes would be you. Nosotros meaning 'we' would be tenemos. And TEN is where you cut off the irregular ending, except for the indicative verb referring to you and him/her/Usd.

    I mean, tienes as in me speaking to you, not yourself. Bleh. I think I'm catching on.

    That's right, you get it. TEN is actually a word in itself. It's a command. It means "have," such as "Ten fe" -- "Have faith."

    At first, I wasn't planning on a whole Spanish lesson, but that helped a ton. Mi condolencia. Gracias. Hopefully, conjugating verbs will be a little easier now. Muchas gracias una vez más.
