In this sentence there are two conjugated verbs in a row but I don't understand it. When I started learning Spanish I was taught that it should always be verb + infinitive.

qué debería considera la gente cuando toma este tipo de decisiones

Can someone explain this to me please? Why don't we say "qué debería considerar" instead?

  • I got it in a message from a native Spanish speaker.

You are right about the rule you were taught, the sentence should be:

qué debería considerar la gente cuando toma este tipo de decisiones

Most probably it was a typo, since the sentence you received doesn't make sense otherwise.
