Write a letter to a friend in Spanish about being in a doctor's office or emergency room. Tell why your were there and what the doctor did. Include a salutation and farewell. The letter should have a minimum of 10 sentences. Keep it basic and simple. I just have trouble with the verbs and tenses of things. I just need an example thank you in advance for helping

OpenStudy (hugsnotughs):

Okay. You say you only need help with the verbs an tenses, right? I think you should do it in past tense...since you are writing to a friend about that time when you went to the doctor's office or emergency room. Do they give you a specific tense to follow or have you learned about a past tense recently? For example, preterite?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yes past tense. I would like to see an example of sentences if that's ok. this is just kind of overwhelming

OpenStudy (hugsnotughs):

I understand. :) Okay, so I think you would be working with preterite perfect tense. Me hizo un sujeria - He gave me surgery Yo fui al hopsital - I went to the hospital Go here: http://conjugator.reverso.net/conjugation-spanish.html and whichever verb you want to make in past tense look for the verbs under "Pretérito perfecto simple" and choose who is saying it, meaning "el, tu, yo, usted, etc.." Maybe that'll help. :)

I'm just really bad at putting sentences together without google translate honestly. I don't even know where to start. but thanks for the website

OpenStudy (hugsnotughs):

I wrote this example of a letter about your assignment. The letter is written in past tense. If you need more help write me. Querido José, La semana pasada tuve un accidente. Me caí mientras andaba en bicicleta con mi amigo Juan. Tenía mucho dolor en mi brazo derecho. Juan llamó a la ambulancia y me llevaron a la sala de emergencias. El doctor me revisó y luego me tomó una radiografía. El diagnóstico decía que tenía una fractura leve. El doctor ordenó que me pusieran yeso en el brazo. Estaré con el yeso por un mes. Cuando esté mejor iremos a visitarte con Juan. Escríbeme cuando tengas tiempo. Un abrazo de tu amigo. Carlos.
