Confusing hints

I found several of the hints regarding word order really confusing and they caused me to make mistakes I would not otherwise have made.

eg ‘A so fantastic comment’ implied that the adjective should come before the noun. 

And the one in the last sentence about this year being positive and successful was ungrammatical.

Hola a todos

these hints have been revised and it's true that in the last line we didn't need the "a" - that was making it confusing. As Clara said it should say:  "...and that this year will be positive and successful workwise." That's what it's saying now.

The literal note for "What a fantastic comment! has also been modified.

Gracias y saludos

I agree with the above. The phrase "and that this year will be a positive and successful workwise."   is totally wrong in English. "workwise" is an adverb, not a noun, in English. It should have been phrased: " and that this will be a positive and successful year, workwise.

Hi M & Larry,

Regarding-

 "...and that this year will be a positive and successful workwise." In my opinion, it's merely a typo. If you omit the 'a', the sentence then makes perfect sense.
