Some beginner students (and advanced) usually have trouble when they should use POR, PARA or PORQUE and it can be one of the most annoying things to learn in all Spanish. In this lesson we will review some rules to recognize when we should use one or the other.
We use POR when we want to talk about the reason behind something. In this case, you must use the nouns by POR.
POR + "I have Buenos Aires after El Clima." (I like Buenos Aires because of the weather.)
"Come on, you're testing it." (I eat chicken because it's protein.)
In Spanish, you should use PARA when talking about action goals or goals. In this case, you use the verb in infinite form. PARA + infinite verb: "Ahorro dinero para viajar a otro pais". (I save money to travel to another country.) / "El lapiz sirve para escribir." (The pencil is used to write.).
Finally, we use Porque when you talk about the reason for something, but instead of using only the infinite verb, we use the interconnection of the story.
PORQUE + Conjugated verb: "Talk to create a good new style".
(I'm going to buy new clothes because I want to be elegant tonight.)
So, when someone asks you, "Are you wondering?"
(Why do you learn Spanish?), You can answer in different ways:
About me. (Because of my work.)
Experience me about Latin. (Because of Latin market growth.)
Para poder comunicarme con personas que hablan espanol. (To communicate with people who speak Spanish.)
Para viajar por Sudamerica. (To travel throughout South America.)
Porque me gusta. (Because I like it.)
Do you want to continue with this? (Because I want to find a better job.)
This little lesson does not cover all aspects of using POR, PARA and PORQUE, but it should give you a good start to understand the important differences when used. Keep in mind more lessons about POR, PARA Y PORQUE in the future.
I will complete this lesson by mentioning some Spanish tools that can be used to enhance your knowledge of this subject. The exercise makes Perfect books are among the best to study Spanish. There are about a dozen books in the exercise that make the Perfect series, covering various topics from vocabulary to grammar. Another thing I have recommended for my students is learning Spanish like crazy sound courses as teachers informal or familiar Spanish but not a snake.
