Writing Exercises

Singular and Plural

On this page you'll find easy Spanish writing exercises to practice switching between the singular and plural conjugation of the third person in the present tense.

For exercises on other aspects of Spanish grammar see our index of exercises and worksheets.



But first of all, a quick review:


singular plural
Él
He
vive
lives
estudia
studies

works
Ellos
They

live
estudian
study
trabajan
work
Ella
She
vive
lives
estudia

Ellas

You notice, of course, that there's no difference between the masculine and feminine form, just like in English. It couldn't be easier!

Now let's get started:

Francisco y Paulina estudian en el Instituto de Ciencias Nucleares.

Arturo __________________ en la Facultad de Medicina.


Fernando y Daniela trabajan en el banco.

Roberto _________________ en el aereopuerto.





II. Read aloud questions and answers, picking one item from each column, as in the highlighted example. Choose between the singular and the plural form of the verb you choose, to match your subject.
