Is anyone else just chipping away at the Spanish lessons here hoping that one day they will understand enough to have the courage to talk to someone in Spanish? I'm level B1 in the lessons, but probably A2 when it comes to writing, A1 when it comes to listening and A0 when it comes to converations!
I fully understand I won't ever be fluent unless I talk with Spanish people, but I'm level C2 at making up reasons why today just isn't the day.
I have a lot of problems with conjugation--past, past perfect, I am ok with the present tense. Where can I learn more about how to conjugate verbs in all moods and tenses.

thanks in adavance
Perhaps "espero encontrarla porque sino los villancicos no serán los mismos" can also be rendered: "espero encontrarla porque si no los villancicos no serán los mismos" ? … Are both versions equally acceptable, or is one preferred over the other?
Why not "Ni que me fueses" it is not as though YOU (2nd familiar), or is another interpretation: "It is not as though I am going to ruin myself"? i.ei a reflexive form.
While reading through I spotted a mistake here:
If you had taken the umbrella, you wouldn't had got so wet.
My understanding is that in Spanish, “un billón” represents a different quantity from “a billion”in English, and this should not be directly translated, but is rather the same as “mil millón.”
Is my info wrong? Can there be regional variation?
