Me extraña que él quiera venir al cine con nosotras. (I'm surprised he wants to come to the cinema with us.)
I'm confused by what appears to be third person (extraña) rather than first person (extraño) in this sentence. Please explain. Is it similar to use of the verb "gustar" --- where third person is used?
Am I right that (mostly) if I use it with estar it means bored and with ser it means boring?
A couple of questions:
1. How to tell when to use an article in cases like this:
vamos a ir a la Sierra de Atapuerca.
You Mañana vamos a ir a Sierra de Atupuerca.
2. Why “there” does not translate to “allá”
and many people travel there
muchas personas viajan a este lugar
You y muchas personas viajan allá
Am I right that I could exchage qué poco with cuánto and the sentence would be correct just with an opposite meaning?
The Larousse Spanish Dictionary shows: -3. (en frases) ¡a mí qué! so what?, why should I care?; para mí: (yo creo) as far as I'm concerned, in my opinion; por mí: as far as I'm concerned; por mí, no hay inconveniente it's fine by me
How do we get to the: para mí: I have a feeling that ?
Even after the lengthy explanation it's still unclear.
Por mí que cierren el cine. why should I care if the close down the cinema =Por mí si ellos cierren el cine?
La oracion: "que los compra acto seguido por internet" seems rather cumbersome. Is that the "Spanish" way of making such a statement? Why couldn't the same meaning be expressed as: "comprará los por internet".
1st table of examples. Why do you use 'tocara' in the third sentence when referring to 'they'? Should it not be 'tocaran'?
I suggest another song suitable for practicing: Me gustas tu by Manu chao.
I was wondering what this sentence would be in LatAm:Juan y tú _tenéis_______ los ojos verdes.Juan and you have green eyes.HINT: Conjugate "tener" in El PresenteWould it be: "tienen" for the plural use of "you all"
Thank you. Nicole
I was wondering which lesson you referred to below in your reply to Mags (I did a search for Poder but there are tons of references).
"We will to expand on this in the lesson and compare with how the modal verb poder is used - possibly in another lesson."
