Ponerse

1
vote

I found this page today and it seemed helpful. While I have ~30 years of Spanish behind me, I find that I still could improve in a few areas. In my new job, I use the language more for work than in the past.

However, I found a problem right off the bat with your verb conjugations. The very first time I tried to use this page I ran a test with the reflexive verb 'ponerse'. Guess what? I noticed the errors right away. So, my first experience using your website leaves me somewhat disappointed. The conjugations for 'poner' seem OK on the other hand.

That's a great suggestion and I will pass it along. It always helped me to know what "kind" of verb it was when I was learning to conjugate too.

Hi Nick & everybody else,

I'm not sure how the conjugations are generated, but please consider this suggestion:

It would be helpful (especially for those of us who occasionally get all mixed up) to have listed at the top of each page for each verb, whether it is REGULAR, REGULAR BUT STEM-CHANGING, or IRREGULAR. That we we know which verbs to use for a model, and which to just memorize.

Thanks William. I have passed this along to our "dictionary/conjugation" guy and he is working on it as I type. When we updated the website a few weeks ago, we lost a bit of the code for the conjugator and it has been a mess trying to figure out which code is missing! I'll let you know when we get the reflexive verbs fixed.

Hi, Will

Welcome to this site.

Sorry you had a bad experience with the conjugator. I have found this to be a great web site, but there are a few errors. Thanks for letting us know about this one. It really is a disaster. The administrators are constantly working to improve the site, and are doing a great job.

I think if you cruise around the site for a while, you'll find the ponerse type of problems to be the exception, but please let us know of any other errors you find. We try to keep this a friendly place, and we welcome any suggestions to make improvements or correct errors.

With your many years of experience in Spanish (and apparent fluency in English) you can be a great asset to this group. We're glad to have you on board!

Wow, I just reported it.
I think you'll find the site & the knowledge of the people very helpful.
I have noticed that conjugation sites will conjugate anything as long as they end in ar, er, ir. But it sure messed up a commonly used verb.
