Question & Answer

Posted By teacher

Hello Matthew,

How would you say to become dark? as in it gets dark early at this time of year. Is it se hace oscuro en esta epoca del año?

Hello Phil,

‘Se hace oscuro’ works well, but there are two verbs that are the second group of verbs.

‘Oscurecerse’ has the exact meaning.

‘Anochecer’ means ‘night to fall’ and usually has the feeling of ‘getting dark’ within it. It can also mean ‘to be somewhere at nightfall’.

Just as a matter of interest on this last one, you have ‘atardecer’ which also can have the meaning of getting darker, and ‘amanecer’ which means ‘to get light’ or ‘morning to break’.
