EL TIEMPO CONDICIONAL: THE CONDITIONAL TENSE

Let’s move right along to the conditional tense. It’s fairly simply and we all tend to use it quite a bit. The tiempo condicional is the equivalent of “I/you/he/she/we/they would” do something. It is composed of an infinitive + the endings -ía, -ías, -ía, -íamos, or -ían.

El tiempo condicional está compuesto del infinitivo + la terminación correspondiente.

comer + -ía = comería → Comería pan dulce.

I would eat sweet bread.vivir

+ -ía = viviría → Viviría en México.

I would live in Mexico.

Favor de notar que las conjugaciones de las formas yo, usted, él y ella tienen la misma terminación en este tiempo.
