Why is it "Mi abuela sabia cocinar", but "Mi abuela supo cuidarme muy bien"? Shouldn't both sentences be in imperfect tense? My assumption is that the action is descriptive and doesn't have a definite start or end.
Why am I marked wrong because of this?
Hi, I’m an environmental consultant. Am I a consultura ambiental or a consultura medioambiental please?
Also, i know I should say soy consultura, so assume I should still say soy consultura ambiental not soy una consultura ambiental, as the ambiental part is still describing my professsion and not a quality adjective?
Hello. Thank you for the useful lesson. It clarified some things, but not all. I have some texts. One of them:
José у María han paseado hoy por el parque y han hablado mucho. La verdad es que ha hablado María, y José ha escuchado solamente. Cuando María ha terminado, ya era tarde y han regresado a casa. En casa, José ha recordado que quería decir muchas cosas a María, pero María ya no estaba con él.
I can understand the first two usage of PPC, the second two are less understandable. And after "Cuando" I can't understand at all. What are the units of time there? Or what other explanations? My translation is:
Jose and Maria have walked in the park today and have talked a lot. The truth is that Maria was talking (have talked), and Jose was only listening (has only listened). When Maria finished (talking), it was already late, and they returned home. At home, Jose remembered that he wanted to say many things to Maria, but Maria already wasn’t with him.
How do I explain my present continuous and simple there?
Why doesn't "hache" follow the same rules as words like "agua" where the intial vowel is a stressed a?
