Matching endings

A couple of weeks ago, we asked you to find an error in a text. Well, it's about time we gave you the correct answer.

The trick is that all parts of a phrase have to match in their gender and number.

The text said "Personas que no obedezcan, pueden ser multados." Here, we are talking about personas, they are las personas and as such they cannot be multados, but have to be multadas. Anyway, it's still better to buy a ticket than to pay the fine, isn't it.

This simple chart explains the principle. To find out more about Spanish and how to learn it without tedious grammar exercises, book one of our free trial lessons.
