Usage notes

  • Venir is used a bit differently in Spanish than "come" in English. Venir always references movement towards the speaker, whereas "come" can signify movement away as well. The phrase "I'm coming home today" in Spanish would not use venir. It could use ir (to go) as in "Voy a casa hoy".
