  • 5. Perfect Tenses
    The perfect tenses in Spanish are formed with:
    The helping verb haber, in the appropriate tense and mood, plus:

    Past participles are normally formed by taking the infinitive, dropping off the last two letters, and adding -ado for -ar verbs, or -ido for -er and -ir verbs:
    hablar > hablado (spoken), comer > comido (eaten), vivir > vivido (lived)
  • 6. Present Perfect Tenses
    To form the present perfect, use the present tense of haber plus the masculine singular form of the past participle:

  • 10. Tanto y Tan
    Tan basically means "so," sometimes "such a" or "as," and is used only before adjectives or adverbs (or nouns used as adjectives). 
    Examples:Rita es tan altacomoMaría. (Rita is as tall as María.) Rita habla tan rápidocomoMaría. (Rita talks as fast as María.) Sentences like those are by far the most common usage of tan.
    Tanto basically means "so much" or "so many" or, when used with como, "as much" or "as many.“
    Examples:Tengotantodinerocomo Juan. (I have as much money as Juan.) Tengotantodineroque no séquéhacer con él. (I have so much money I don't know what to do with it.)
    Tanto also can be used to make other kinds of comparisons and has a wide variety of colloquial uses; under some circumstances it can be used not only as an adjective but also as a noun, pronoun or adverb. A good dictionary will list at least two dozen different uses.
    Examples:Tengo quince y tantosnietos. (I have 15 or so grandchildren.) No quieroestudiartanto. (I don't want to study so much.) No comotantoella. (I don't eat as much as she.)
