Hello, what's the difference between reir and reirse please ? Thanks !
Hi. Studying this lesson reminded me that I searched on your site lessons that would help with sentence building, and how that is done in Spanish (above the usual introduction to making sentence.) I could not find any despite several difference search words. I also looked through the grammar, but saw no heading for that subject.
So could you point me in the right direction:
1- How to make sentences and their correct /various word order, and how interchangeable /or not the word order is, on a more advanced level than : subject, verb, object.
2- And also how the same meaning can be conveyed in different ways.
Thank you. Nicole
Inma, I just wanted to say that this lesson is the best on the subject. No other place have I heard/seen the reference of "seeing the .......". This really helped me a lot to "get" these very interesting tenses. Thank you for sharing your insight/knowledge with us and your patience!
Hi, I was a bit surprised to see this use of "gustar" as none of the books I have mention this usage i.e. Barron's 501 verbs, shows only that this verb is used in the third person, etc. Would it be a Iberian usage? I am in Canada and study Latin American Spanish [looking forward to that distinction in your program:) -- any news on that?]
Thank you. Nicole
Re: Sentence above:
No, no me gusta la paella.No, I do not like paella.
In the lesson above, I was surprised to hear how the word "paella" was pronounced. I had never heard that pronunciation. My question is, are the letters "ae" considered a diphthong, and if so, what would be its pronunciation?
Thank you and wishing you a great day!
Instead of just adding "Me llamo", I wrote "me llamo Juan" inadvertently giving the answer "Me llamo Juan Juan". This is accidental! Yet Kwiziq marks it incorrect! Almost certainly, this would never occur in a practical situation.
Also when using my tablet, I sometimes miss out a question by accident. Kwiziq should prompt that all the questions have not been answered. This is also accidental! Yet Kwiziq marks it incorrect!
If you are also an elderly man? Can you use "¿Cómo estás?" when greeting Gerardo?
HI- It might be helpful to also clarify that you don't use a possessive when speaking of part of your body. For example: as shown above, "My leg hurts" would be translated as "THE leg hurts me" "Me duele LA pierna" ,
NOT as we would more commonly say in English, "My leg hurts me" "Me duele MI pierna".
