English often uses definite articles (the) and
indefinite articles (a, an) before nouns.
Spanish also has definite and indefinite
articles—used much more!
Spanish articles vary in form because they
agree in gender and number with the nouns
they modify.
Definite articles
 Spanish has four forms that are equivalent to the
English definite article the. You use definite articles
to refer to specific nouns.

Los infinitivos

An infinitive (el infinitivo) is the most
basic verb form in all languages.
In English, it is always preceded by "to,"
as in "to run," "to love," and "to travel."
In Spanish, infinitives consist of only one
word and are separated into three
different conjugations according to their
endings:
-ar, -er, or -ir.
These endings are attached to the root of
a verb to form the whole infinitive
hablar, correr, compartir
Verbs in the infinitive form indicate what
the action is but nothing about who is
doing the action at what point in time.
