Options, Spanish

Activating the function: menu "Modules", "Conjugation Training, Options", "Spanish"
(also see help for options, general and options, passive)

The following Spanish-specific settings can be done:

Allowed tenses for training

With help of this option you can define which tenses shall be selectable for Coniuno when training the Spanish language. You can select/deselect each tense separately in order to adjust a training to exactly your training-wishes. If for example you only want to train Presente and Futuro Simple, then deactivate all other tenses. Coniuno will only build sentences from these two tenses.

The tenses are divided in the groups:

  • Indicativo
  • Subjuntivo
  • Condicional
  • Andere

The group "Others" contains the tenses:

  • Participio
  • Gerundio
  • Imperativo

An additional switch "(de)select all" allows the activation, respectively deactivation of all tenses.

During a training Coniuno firstly randomly chooses a Spanish verb and afterwards randomly chooses one of the allowed tenses. Afterwards the also random choice of the person is done (singular 1..3, plural 1..3).

If all tenses are deactivated (means no tense is allowed), then all buttons on the main-screen are "deactivated". A training of the chosen language (here Spanish) is not possible anymore.

The group "Indicativo" consists of 8 tenses, the group "Condicional" however of only 2 tenses. Imperativo and Gerundio consist of only one tense each. To achieve a fair distribution of tested conjugations, Coniuno does a weighting of the chosen tenses.

An example:From the Indicativo-group four tenses, from the Condicional-group only "Condicional Simple" is allowed. Coniuno thus will try to ask four questions from the area of Indicativo and one question from the area of Condicional. If now also the "Condicional Perfecto" is allowed, then Coniuno will try to ask one Condicional-question with every second Indicativo-questions already. As Coniuno works with probabilities here and not with exact counters it can however come to slight deviations.

Allowed persons for training

Here you can define which persons Coniuno shall select when training Spanish verbs. The following persons can be combined:

  • Singular I
  • Singular II
  • Singular III
  • Plural I
  • Plural II
  • Plural III

This option is particularly useful in case you want to train one (or several) persons in more than one tense. For example activate all tenses of the Indicative and as only allowed person the plural II. Coniuno will now train only plural II with you using the tenses Presente, Pretérito Imperfecto etc.

An additional switch "(de)select all persons" allows the activation respectively deactivation of all persons.

Further settings

With help of this option you can influence the specific behaviour of Coniuno when training the Spanish language.

The following options are available:

  • Training-Verbset

    The training-verbset defined here is used by Coniuno to take the random choice of Spanish verbs.
    The training-verbsets "verbset 1", "verbset 2", "verbset 3", "verbset 4", "verbset 5" as well as "example verbs" are disposable. In all training-verbsets changes can be done, like for example adding new verbs.
    The respectively chosen training-verbset is shown in the second status-panel of the main-screen during training.

  • Verb forms

    "Verb forms" can be used to define whether Coniuno shall only check for "female verb-forms", "male verbforms" or for both female- and male verb-forms. This is applicable when building verbs in their passive-forms (also see conjugation rules, Spanish).

  • Check symbols

    This point was added to simplify the typing-work a bit.

    If this option is activated then all symbols (e.g. é or ñ) will be checked. If this option is not activated, then Coniuno accepts beside the symbols also the "normal" characters.

    That means:

    a = á, à, â
    e = é, è, ê
    i = í, ì, î
    o = ó, ò, ô
    u = ú, ù, û
    n = ñ

    (the same applies for A, E...)

    If you enter a correct solution in which at least one symbol was replaced by a normal character, then this is counted as correct solution (counter +1). Coniuno informs in the field "information" about the completely correct solution.


    Searched for is the plural 1, Indicativo Pretérito Imperfecto from "soñar", means "soñábamos". If this function is activated then the solution "sonabamos", "soñabamos", "sonábamos" oder "soñábamos" is counted as correct.
