Homework help regarding the words "tener", "venir", "preferir", and "querer"
 
First, I want to thank all of you who come in and read my thread
The question below is far beyond from what we are currently learning due to the absent of my spanish teacher, however my teacher refused to change the due dates of this homework, therefore I need you guys help

Could you guys please help me out here? Thank you!

[Complete the following paragraph by with the correct form of tener, venir, preferir, and querer]

Mi día es muy interesante. En la mañana yo ___ que hacer la cama. En Chiapas hay muchos escorpiones y nosotros les ___ mucho miedo, por eso limpiamos muy bien todos los días. Hay una mujer simpática que ___ a mi casa para ayudarme a limpiar. Yo ___ pagarle cinco dólares por hora, pero ella ___ recibir libros y no dinero.

Después de limpiar la casa, los niños ___ a mi casa para leer libros conmigo. Ellos ___ leer libros de aventuras, pero yo ___ las novelas clásicas para ellos.

Por la tarde, yo ___ mucho calor. ___ tomar una siesta y no hacer nada. Por las noches, siempre me gusta salir y pasear por el pueblo.

Thank you!

Welcome to the forums. Please note we can't do your homework for you. Post your own try first so we can help you.

Thank you so much for giving me a chance!
Here is one of my many tries, however I think this is the best and the closest that I approached to this problem right now.


[Complete the following paragraph by with the correct form of tener, venir, preferir, and querer]

Mi día es muy interesante. En la mañana yo [TENGO] que hacer la cama. En Chiapas hay muchos escorpiones y nosotros les [TIENEN] mucho miedo, por eso limpiamos muy bien todos los días. Hay una mujer simpática que [VIENE] a mi casa para ayudarme a limpiar. Yo [QUIERO] pagarle cinco dólares por hora, pero ella [QUIERE] recibir libros y no dinero.

Después de limpiar la casa, los niños [VIENEN] a mi casa para leer libros conmigo. Ellos [PREFIERE] leer libros de aventuras, pero yo [TENGO] las novelas clásicas para ellos.

Por la tarde, yo [TENGO] mucho calor. [QUIERO] tomar una siesta y no hacer nada. Por las noches, siempre me gusta salir y pasear por el pueblo.

Could you check my answer, please?

All the verbs are OK
nosotros les [TIENEN] mucho miedo, and "Ellos [PREFIERE] leer libros de aventuras," are correct versb but not the correct person.

saludos :D

Thank you for your help, however I just sumbit my question to the homework system (with the new answer for the 2 blanks that you said I was using the wrong conjugation)

and then they told me I got these 2 blanks wrong, could you help me again?

*remember I can only use these 4 words to answer the question: tener, venir, preferir, querer

1, pero yo ___ las novelas clásicas para ellos (My answer was TENGO, and it was wrong)
2, ___ tomar una siesta y no hacer nada. Por las noches, siempre me gusta salir y pasear por el pueblo (My answer was QUIERO, and it was wrong, too)

those are the only 2 that I got wrong, could you help me out please? Thank you!

What do you think the correct verbs are?

cwlcwlspanish October 08, 2011 07:10 PM

1, I think it's [PREFIERO], because the sentence before it says that "they Prefer a lot of book...", so I think it will make sense if I put prefiero.

2, I think this is [PREFIERO] too, because I think the answer here says that he "want" to take a nap. etc, so I think the answer will either be querer or preferir

Any comment?

I agree. Good job!

cwlcwlspanish October 08, 2011 07:20 PM

Thank you very much, my answer was right

Thank for all you!
