Question in A1 Focus Test
Mi vecina Patricia es ______.
I put "maleduca" because it's a woman, it's singular and when "maleducar" is conjugated in El Presente, it comes up as "maleduca." Why is it marked wrong? Why is "maleducada" the correct answer?
In relation to that, I don't feel the question has been covered well because we have not encountered that word previously and I cannot find it in any lessons on the Lawless website.
Gracias por la respuesta!
Let us imagine the following scenario. There is a crowd of people at a cinema. what would the ticket controller use to invite those who had bought tickets in advance. haya or han comprado/reservado?
I had to use process of elimination to get the right answer - I couldn't see anywhere it references positively that you sometimes have to change the verb ending to que to go from se acerca to acérquese?
Do you have something to help with that?
I would like to know how can I go to next lesson after I finish answering the questions on this page.
Thank you so much!
Is the choice based on noun agreement?
The sentence that is throwing me is:
¿Para quién has comprado esas flores tan bonitas?
Who have you bought such pretty flowers for?
I have a few questions on this exercise -- that did prove to be challenging : )
1. Store it in the fridge until the next day
Kwizbot Guárdalo en la nevera/ frigorífico hasta el día siguiente
You __________ en la nevara hasta el día proximo.
The test didn’t accept “el día proximo” as a possible answer, whereas online translators have translated "el día proximo" as “the next day”. So I’m wondering if this phrase connotes something other than”the next day”. Thank you
2. I get confused and can’t tell when to include the word in parenthesis in the Spanish translation– like here :
Then, knead (the dough)
Kwizbot Luego, amasa
You Luego, amasa la ___________.
And how would it be written if, for example, if the word isn’t said in English, but appears in Spanish and/or vice versa? And the meaning of any other similar anotations,
3. In my answer, would this phrasing/word order be acceptable, and if not, why not?
the marzipan is ready!
Kwizbot ¡Ya está listo el mazapán!
You ¡El mázepan está listo!
Thank you for your attention and patience!
Have a great day! Nicole
My trusty Collins dictionary [Seventh Edition 2014] agrees with your conjugation of "riáis" for the 3rd person plural subjunctive but "WordReference [and Spanish dict] both give riais. There is a banner heading in the WordReference entry which I think translates as saying that the tilde was removed in the 2010 reform of the RAE.
Is your version a typo or am I missing something?
My answer "algunas vacaciones largas" was marked wrong and "unas vacaciones largas" was given as the correct answer for "some long vacations." Why is algunas wrong? The lesson doesn’t address either unas or algunas.
