English language
Classroom board:

The teacher writes a word on the blackboard:



what is this word?
is it a noun, a verb, a pronoun?


__it´s a verb


it is a verb. Right!
now, let´s see…
can we call this verb form INFINITIVE?
just say anything! The first idea you have…


__yes, it´s the infinitive

So, the Spanish translation is decir?


__yes, that´s it


No, that´s not right.
The infinitive of a verb, generally speaking, must be signalled by the particle to.
