meanings of verbs

saber--- in addition to how conjugate would be nice if you had some meanings given.

This kinda happens in uses.

to taste and know is about saber..   I guess I can use a dictionary.     This is the first time I have noticed not much in the way of meaning is given.    Has a very long entry in the dictionary.

This is not really a question just an observation.

Hola Goo

We normally use the meanings of the verbs that are more appropriate to the level of the lesson. As this is only a basic A1 lesson we have given examples with the meaning of "to know" in a more general sense and gave a little extra note about "to taste". 

We have lots of verbs in Spanish that are polysemic, the same way lots of English words are, so the basic meanings are used in lower level lessons and then, if there are more advanced lessons on the same topic, you will then find other meanings and uses of that verb there. 

In case you would like to know the different meanings of a verb from an early stage, I recommend that, after reading our lesson, you use wordreference for example, or even (in Spanish) the RAE dictionary. 

For example:

https://www.wordreference.com/es/en/translation.asp?spen=saber

https://dle.rae.es/saber

Another way to expand of a specific topic would be for example looking the word up in "library search" - if you type saber, it will give you everything we have in the system that involves saber, other lessons, maybe some gapfills, etc. So you can keep navigating and learning more about it. 

I hope this helps.

Saludos cordiales
