The verb soler is so handy to know, yet one of those verbs that is tricky to remember to use.

Meaning:

Soler means “to tend to" or to be accustomed to" - basically something that you frequently do, and it can also be translated as “usually".

Here are some examples:

  • Yo suelo coger el metro cada mañana a las ocho.

       I tend to take the metro every morning at eight.

 

  • Solíamos hacer la compra cada miércoles.

      We used to go shopping every Wednesday.
