How do I say "he came downstairs?"
how do I say,"he came downstairs" in spanish?
I would use descend... El descendió las escaleras.
Assuming we know that we are talking about a man,
bajó por la escalera.
My spanish course always refers to stairs in pural form same as in english.
Bajar is the Infinitive of the verb "to come down'' Since it is a single action, we use the preterit The preterit conjugation in the 3rd person singular (he/she/it) is -ó So, it would be "él bajó las escaleras (stairs)" Hope it helped!
Ha bajado las escaleras. He came downstairs.
Neither I nor my dictionary has come across "escaleras" in the plural; we both use it in the form "escalera" to mean a staircase. If you need to talk about how many stairs you would use "escalon(es)". "En mi casa tengo que subir dieziseis escalones unas 300 veces por día." Well it feels like it. So listen to Eddy. "Bajó por la escalera." Simple as that.
If you're talking about someone having an accident (?) then, Él se vino escaleras abajo.
