"we were studing at the university of Salamanca during the 90'
While translating the verb study in spanish , I think we will use preterite indefinido (pretertio perfecto simple) because of time frame (during the 90) instead of preterite imperfecto.
Please guide me on this.
Is there a rule governing the pronunciation of 'v' in Spanish?
Hi... so sorry. There was a problem on my own Google page. It was interpreting the Spanish as French for some reason !!!. I got it sorted. Sorry again for the hassle.
You are doing great work
I was directed to this (very useful !) lesson - i.e., Using tener + participio to express the completion of an action - from a C1 writing exercise ["Charity Kings' Parade] - to explain the structure of this sentence: "Tengo pensado llevar un paraguas". < This is actually a bit different from the examples given in the lesson, because it is not a noun which we "tenemos pensado"; instead it is the verb "llevar" … [so no noun-agreement is required? - i.e. would we still keep the participle "pensado" unchanged if we said "Tengo pensado llevar mis botas de goma"?] … Thus, it might be useful to add, to the lesson, an example along these lines, i.e., where "Tengo pensado" is followed immediately by a verb.
Hello, hope you are all well.
In this exercise the link that says (lesson) brings us here, however there is no lesson, nor any explanation as to the use of this particular phrase and another one below. I did a search of these terms, but nothing came up.
I have two errors, that I would like to understand why they are errors to learn from them, i.e.
this one "Me hacen falta " and the one of " "aquí es la tarjeta:. (see below text)
CLIENT: I need two, one for me and one for my father.
CLIENTA: Me hacen necesidad dos, una para mí y otra para mi padre.
CLIENTA: Me hacen falta dos, una para mí y otra para mi padre. "
CLIENT: Here's the card. Thank you.CLIENTA: aquí es la tarjeta. Muchas gracias.
CLIENTA: Aquí tiene la tarjeta. Muchas gracias.
I looked for a comment in the exercise itself, but there was none, so I am writing this here.
Thank you for your help and stay well.
the 'tu' form of ganar in the subjunctive is gana not ganes. It is only ganes in the negative.
Hola Ines, - hopefully you will be seeing this or it can be forwarded to you :)
I was glad to hear your voice. Hope you and yours are well and the team are all well.
1) I was interested in finding out why the author chose to use the verb "estar" instead of "ser" for
"It's delicious" regarding "harira" It seems to me this would always be "delicious"!
(1-1: I wish I could copy/paste here, but for some reason can't. Is there a way I could do that?
Also I like to keep track of my lessons and errors and notes etc.)

I've taken the tests on this item so many times, that I've memorized the responses. Yet, my score won't budge from 98.2 in spite of always answering correctly. Can this be fixed?
