I am reviewing for my spanish test tomorrow and we never really learned this but it is on the test (dontcha love that)

Ok, so the words are
Indefinite
algo
alguien
alguno/a and algun
o
siempre
tambien

Negative
nada
nadie
ninguno/a and ningun
ni
nunca
tampoco

I just get so confused of where to place them in a sentence in conjunction with the verb and subject

Like here are book examples

Nadie se levanta temprono. (This lesson we also learn reflexive verbs which I think I understand)

Ellos nunca gritan.

We have to get opposites

1. Alguien se pone nervioso.

So ok, where do I put the dang thing now
can I put it in the same place where alguien was?

There was somthing about putting no before the verb then the word after . I am so confused.

I believe Spanish uses a double negative. I'm not sure if you have to do the double negative but I think you're supposed to- can anyone else verify this?

So basically if I were to ask you "What did you do last weekend?"/"?Que hiciste el fin de semana pasado?" in English, you would reply, "I did nothing last weekend" but in Spanish you would say "No hice nada el fin de semana pasado."

I hope that helps a little- good luck on your test tomorrow!
