Who’s that present for? Who did you go to the movies with? Sure, grammar rules tell us not to end sentences with prepositions in English, but we hear it all of the time!
Spanish, on the other hand, is a different story. This contrast leads us to such mistakes as «*Quién es este regalo para?»
In this video lesson, I explain how to understand and fix the common error of ending phrases with prepositions in Spanish.

My students have their first in-class compositions soon, so I finally started my «Errores comunes» video series. I’ve been keeping record of the most common mistakes I see in student compositions for a few years now, so I hope this series will be helpful! In this video, I hope to help them learn to say «divertirse» instead of «tener divertido». Any feedback is welcome, and I would really appreciate if you give the video a «like» on Youtube or even subscribe to my channel!
