Why isn't it en EL verano?
Two sentences from today's lessons for me:
1. ?Vosotras pudisteis reservar ese hotel tan barato?
2. Lo he visto a él primero, y después de ella.
In both sentences, the accented stress on the recording is on the last syllable of the last word. I like to listen to all the sentences without looking and make sure I understand what is said. This pronunciation fools me every time. Why is it not on the penultimate syllable? Is this regional?

I found several of the hints regarding word order really confusing and they caused me to make mistakes I would not otherwise have made.

Could this be ¨no puedo dejar de pensar en ella¨ ?
Are there particular differences in using estar por vs pensar in expressing intention to do something?
'Estoy por comer helado.'
'Pienso comer helado.'
