QUEDAR vs. QUEDARSE in Spanish

Updated: Mar 4

Let’s see how to correctly use QUEDAR and QUEDARSE in Spanish.

Woman thinking about the correct use of "quedar" and "quedarse" in Spanish.

The verb QUEDAR means a lot of things in Spanish…

1) “to agree on a time and place to meet”

  • QUEDAMOS para mañana a las 3 en punto

  • LET’S MEET tomorrow at 3 o’clock

2) “to agree on something”

  • QUEDAMOS en ver esta película juntos

  • WE AGREED to watch this film together

3) “to remain / left”

  • QUEDA poco tiempo para llegar a la estación

  • Little time LEFT to get to the station

And the same verb in it’s “Reflexive Form” QUEDARSE means….

4) “to remain / stay physically in a place”

  • NOS QUEDAMOS una semana más en este lugar

  • WE REMAIN / STAY one more week in this place

That being said, in case you want to push yourself beyond the correct use of QUEDAR and QUEDARSE in Spanish, maybe finding new and powerful resources, plus the opportunity to practice your Spanish by talking in a professionally managed environment, if you want, you can take a look at our Live Conversation Classes (384 Classes available per YEAR — 1 to 6 students per class) 🙂
