“MUY” AND “MUCHO”-how and when to use them
If you are boring of reading or you just simply rather watch to the explanation, you have a watch here, but the explanations are in Spanish, which is a good practice 🙂
Its English equivalent is very, so they pretty much work the same.
Muy is an adverb and it just muy, it does not have feminine, masculine, singular, plural….nada!
Muy can go with adjectives or with adverbs
Muy +adjectiveà Mi hermano es muy alto My brother is very tall
Muy +adverbà Mi coche es muy rápido My car is very fast
#Tip-we can never use the word “muy” by itself…
Imagine this convo
-¿Estás cansada? Are you tired?
You could answer
-Sí, muy cansada (yes, very tired) or Sí, mucho (yes, a lot) but no Sí, muy (yes, very)
a) Mucho is an adjective, and it describe a noun, it is similar to lots of/loads/much…in English, and as it is an adjective and it goes with nouns, depending on the noun it goes with, it will be
Feminine singular — >mucha
Feminine plural –> muchas
Masculine singular –> mucho
Masculine plural –>muchos
Normally mucho goes with a noun…
Feminine singular –> En la fiesta hay mucha gente There is a lot of people in the party
Feminine plural –> Muchas personas estudian español A lot of people learn Spanish
Masculine singular –> Tengo mucho trabajo I have a lot of work
Masculine plural –>Tengo muchos primos I have a lot of cousins
b) Sometimes we use mucho with verbs, in which case mucho is only mucho
Trabajo mucho I work a lot
And that is all for today’s guys, just a couple of things before you leave…
#watchout– we can’t use in Spanish muy mucho like you would say very much in English, NEVER!
When in English you say very much in Spanish is translated as MUCHÍSIMO/MUCHÍSIMA/MUCHÍSIMAS/MUCHÍSIMOS that is why we say
Muchísimas gracias 🙂
