Diferences between CONFIAR y FIARSE DE

In this Spanish lesson, we want to explain the differences between two verbs: fiarse y confiar. Do you want to learn it?

WARNING: one is a reflexive verb (FIARSE DE) and the other is not (CONFIAR EN)

CONFIAR EN: We use it to talk about situations, things or people. Having confidence in someone or something.

-Pepe, quiero que seas el director de la empresa. Llevas aquí mucho tiempo y confío en que lo harás muy bien.
-Muchas gracias. Sé que confías en mí, pero no puedo aceptarlo. Es mucha responsabilidad.

FIARSE DE: We use it to talk about people and it’s more concrete. Putting your trust in someone because of their qualities, skills or promises. Here it is synonymous with trust.


-¡Madre mía! ¡He olvidado la cartera! Qué vergüenza. ¿Puedo pagarte mañana? ¿Te fías de mí?
-Pablo, eres nuestro mejor cliente, ¡claro que me fio de ti! Me lo puedes pagar otro día

klasse Sprachschule im schönen Valencia Ich habe einen 2-wöchigen Intensivkurs hier gemacht, eine tolle Erfahrung. Die Klassen sind recht klein, die Lehrer motiviert und sehr freundlich, so dass ich hier große Fortschritte gemacht habe. Auch nach dem Unterricht gab es interessante Aktivitäten. Die Lage der Schule mitten im Zentrum ist ideal, es gibt viele Caffee's und Restaurantes in der Nähe. Die zwei Wochen gingen leider viel zu schnell rum!

Estupenda escuela, amables profesores, muchas actividades y una experiencia de vida fenomenal! I did an intensive course at Taronja last summer and all I can say is it was an amazing, unforgettable experience. Everything is organised very well, relaxed study environment and a certain way to make you love the language even more. Very sociable, amusing and the location is just perfect. Not to mention that Valencia is such a lovely place that since then I have been dreaming of moving there for good. I will definitely do a course there again and I would recommend it to everyone :-)))

Zeer goede en leuke school Samen met mijn echtgenoot 1 week intensief Spaanse les gevolgd. Alles goed geregeld, modern lesmateriaal en prettige manier van (interactief) lesgeven. Fijne school voor jong en ‘oud’! Hoewel wij veelal niet deelnamen aan de activiteiten zijn ze erg leuk, zeker voor jongeren! Deze school is echt een aanrader!

I would like to thank everyone for the experience! I really needed to improve the grammar, and I think this school was the first one where I could really feel some improvement (even though I was there for only two weeks). And they have many nice activities, so, you'll always have interesting options for how to spend your time outside the classroom. Another nice thing about the school is that they change the time of your classes during the high season (which is summer), so, you'll be able to have mornings and evenings free depending on the day. You also get to have classes with different teachers, cause they change every week, and then during one week you'll have two different ones. So, that's good too. Nice school! Definitely worth considering if you are thinking of learning Spanish in Valencia.

I've been visiting Taronja for years working on my spanish. The staff and the teachers are fantastic!. They mix and combine methods and classes which keeps it interesting and makes for a great experience. They also offer lots of extracurricular activities and are committed to helping you not only learn spanisch but make sure you really enjoy your time in Valencia.

La escuela estaba muy divertida, había actividades cada día y los personas que vienen son muy simpática. De verdad la experiencia estuvo fantástico y mi español ha mejorado mucho, yo sé necesito mejorar más pero si yo pude quedar más tiempo en esta escuela yo tendría fluidez español rápido.

Taronja is a wonderful place to be. The atmosphere is pleasant, always a friendly and warm welcome and it makes it easy to feel at home in Valencia. I like the style of teaching at Taronja: it is innovative and creative. The people at Taronja are passionate about their work, are in it with their hearts and love to teach. I benefited a lot from the special combination of learning a language and exploring the culture with all my senses (e.g. cooking class). I can warmly recommend Taronja...
