Non-programming cheat sheets/tutorials

Posted 09 April 2009 - 08:48 AM

Okay, so they best way to learn is to teach. Post a non-programming tutorial/cheat sheet that you think might be helpful to yours (and maybe others) learning.

Spanish Conjugation!!!

Spanish has different ways to represent people, just like English. We have I, you, them, he, she, etc. Spanish has Yo (I), t (you, informal, like talking to a friend or pet), l (he), ella (she), usted (you, formal, like talking to parents or a boss), nosotros (we), vosotros (you all, used only in Spain), ellos (they, boys, also for a mix of boys and girls), ellas (they, girls), and ustedes (you all). For most normal verbs, you just take off the ending, and put the conjugated ending at the end of the root.

Ex. In English, we have the verb to talk. We would say "I talk", "you talk", "she talks", "he talks", "we talk", or "they talk". These verbs are "activated" or "conjugated". In Spanish, it's basically the same thing for hablar (to talk/speak) "Yo hablo", "t hables", etc. The verb "hablar" has a root, habl-, and an ending, -ar. This is called an "-ar" verb, and should be activated appropiatally. There is a difference in activated forms from hablar and correr (to run) and abrir (to open)

-ar verbs:
--yo - o (hablo) (yo always gets an o)
--t - as (hablas)
--l/ella/usted - a (habla)
--nosotros - amos (hablamos)
--vosotros - is (hablis)
--ellos/ellas/ustedes - an (hablan)

-er verbs:
--yo - o (corro)
--t - es (corres)
--l/ella/usted - e (corre)
--nosotros - emos (corremos)
--vosotros - is (corris)
--ellos/ellas/ustedes - en (corren)

-ir verbs: just like er until you get to nos. and vos.
--yo - o (abro)
--t - es (abres)
--l/ella/usted - e (abre)
--nosotros - imos (abrimos)
--vosotros - s (abrs)
--ellos/ellas/ustedes - en (abren)

To type some of the special characters, hold Alt and type on the little num pad over in the side of your keyboard. (for laptop users, hold the blue fn and alt then type the letter that has the little blue number on it)

- Alt + 130
- Alt + 160
- Alt + 161
- Alt + 163

I know this is the student campus forum but why post non programming help sheets on a programming help board? Just curious. :)

I see it is all fine and correct, although
you have typo, and i highlight it on here.

It is suppose to be "Tu Hablas" Not "Hables"

And let me add to your small tutorial that,
this is very true move of the time, while there
is some exceptions:

Caber (to fit)
Yo quepo
Tu cabes
El/ella/usted cabe
Nosotros cabemos
Vosotros Cabis
Ustedes/Ellos/Ellas caben

:]]

And there is some more of those verbs, that
right now its too early in the morning to even
think about them
hahaha


I will go ahead and say, if you guys ever need help
with Spanish, just give me a hit, and I'm sure I can
help out with anything from grammar, to analyzing
stories, poetry and stuff.

It feels good to be able to help with something, since
I'm just leeching knowledge from you guys in the
programming forums :P B)

Because this is a diverse forums, and it might help someone :P This can also be for math or something. Like... someone could post a mini-tutorial on limits, or some kinky calculus. Programming is so much more than just code. Besides, people here are most likely in the same classes, and might find it interesting. Shut up!

What is the limit as your face goes flying away?

Simple: it is infinity if and only if you have experienced a Chuck Norris Roundhouse kick to your face.
