Hola!

Alguien me podría explocar por favor cuándo tengo que usar " me voy, se va, nos vamos" y "irse, irme, irnos" etcétera. Hay alguna regla?


Gracias antemano!

These are called pronomial verbs (often called reflexive verbs). The fact is that there is no general rule and you have to learn them. Some verbs can be used with or without the personal pronoun, with a subtle difference in meaning (dormir to sleep, dormirse to go to sleep) but there are too many situations to explain in one post.

Creo que lo entendí. Si hablo de ir a algún lugar entonces sería así - quiere que vaya con él al cine./ quiere que vaya con ella a su casa.

Y si me refiero a salir de algún lugar - quiere que nos vayamos con él del cine/ quiere que me vaya con ella de su casa.

Y en este caso : Ellos no querían que fuéramos allí solos, porque ya era tarde. - acá no pongo "que NOS fuéramos allí", no? porque se refiere a " ir a algún lado", verdad?

Correcto, Caramelita.

Me Voy means something like "I'm leaving" in spanish.
Example : Me Voy en unos minutos. - I'm Leaving in a few minutes.

Same thing applies to Se Va(He/she/it's leaving) Te Vas(you're leaving) Nos Vamos(We're Leaving)

Irme/se/nos is kind of the same. They all mean leaving. I don't really know how to explain it, but I can give you examples of how to use the words and how I use them..

Irme.

Tengo que irme a las cuatro. - I have to leave at four.

Irnos
Tenemos que irnos en unos minutos. - We have to leave in a few minutes.

I hope that helped.
