In Spanish, many exclamations are formed with ¡qué! Although these constructions might seem very simple, there are actually some strict rules about the grammar used in them.
Caer – to fall – is irregular in the first person singular.

Comparative adverbs are used to compare the relative superiority or inferiority of two or more things. This superior lesson will keep you from getting an inferiority complex. 😉
Spanish verb conjugations can be divided into two categories: simple tenses and compound tenses, and the latter can be further divided into two categories: progressive tenses and perfect tenses.
The conditional is one of the simplest Spanish verb forms. There is only one set of endings and most verbs – even those which are irregular in the present tense – use their infinitive as the root of the conjugation.
The conditional is a verb mood used for actions that are not guaranteed to occur; often they are dependent on certain conditions. It is equivalent to "would" in English.
The Spanish past conditional (aka conditional perfect) is used to indicate an action that would have occurred in the past if a certain condition had been met.
The Spanish conditional progressive is very similar to its English counterpart (would be + -ing). In both languages, the conditional progressive expresses an action that would be in progress at a certain point in time.
Contractions in Spanish and English are very different, because English contractions, such as it is > it’s, are considered somewhat informal and are optional. In Spanish, however, contractions are required, and there are essentially 3 types.
