        1. Hola… AYUDAR is a verb so it does not have a singular form. It is a regular verb, so you can conjugate it as “Yo ayudo”, “tú ayudas” and so on. The singular would apply for nouns and adjectives in Spanish, e.g. “casa” -> “casas”. Hope it helps Jeremiah 🙂

  1. Hello,
    On the basic Weather Expressions lesson, there is an error: In general we use three verbs to talk about the weather in Spanish: HABER in its form HAY, ESTAR as ESTÁ and HACER as HAY.
    The second HAY should be HACE.
    Thanks.

  2. Alex – you use “esta usando” for talking about what someone is wearing. What about llevar, llevar puesto, ponerse, etc.? I feel like different countries use different verbs to talk about what someone is actively wearing at a particular moment. I’m trying to figure out which countries/regions use which phrases.
    Gracias!

    1. Hi Jessica. Sorry for the late answer. Yes, I think different countries use different phrases as well. USAR means “to wear” and it would a very basic way to say what you are wearing. I have heard “LLEVAR PUESTO” a lot from Mexican TV shows. Probably, it is more common for them to say “LLEVAR PUESTO”, e.g. “Llevo puesta una chaqueta”, which is the same as “Estoy usando una chaqueta” or “Me puse una chaqueta” (using PONERSE). I could not tell you which countries exactly use which phrases, but I am sure most of them if not all would understand what you mean when you use any of them.
