¡Hola! Thanks for using our resources to learn Spanish. This time, we are sharing a nice worksheet with two interesting exercises for learning basic sentence structure in Spanish. We hope you find it very useful to practice this very essential topic. Let’s start…


Students could work by themselves or in pairs to solve the exercises on this worksheet.

First of all, this worksheet shows a brief explanation on basic sentence structure in Spanish, that is, the two main parts: “sujeto” y “predicado”. The rules have been explained in two grammar lessons related to this topic (see below). For the first exercise, students will see a set of sentences on the left and they will have to identify and write down the “sujeto” (subject) and “predicado” (predicate) in the corresponding boxes in the worksheet. As for the second exercise, students must unscramble and write down the sentences in the correct order with the subject first and then the predicate, making sure they place everything in the right order.

The teacher prepares a list of 5 sentences using color sheets for two groups of students. Each sentence should be written on different colors and both groups should have similiar sentences with easy to more intermediate grammar on them. Students must work together to unscramble the sentences and set them in the right order. After that, each group presents for the rest of class, reading every sentence out loud. The group that orders that follows the rules for basic sentence structure in Spanish the best, wins. Finally, the teacher provides some feedback on the rules and pronunciation mistakes.
