The verb llevar

Posted By teacher

This is a highly versatile verb, but because of that it can be confusing. It has many meanings.

1) It can mean ‘to wear’ (as in clothes)

¿Qué llevas? = What are you wearing?

Llevaba una camisa roja = he was wearing a red shirt

2) It can mean to carry

Llevó los platos a la cocina = he carried the plates into the kitchen

I will continue this thread later this week, but meanwhile, has anyone got any other meanings for the verb ‘llevar’?
