Olvidar/olvidarse

I'm afraid I'm finding this particular topic difficult to master.  I think my problem with olvidar/olvidarse is that they're very similar in print and I find it hard to remember the differences.  I'm wondering whether it wouldn't be better to split the topic into two parts, part 1 olvidar, Part 2 olvidarse and set two kwizzes.  Has anyone else found this topic difficult?

Hi Jim

I understand it may be difficult to remember all the little details on how to use this verb, and I imagine it may need a bit of extra time to master it. I re-read the lesson to see if that split that you mention could be doable but I'm afraid in this case the purpose of this lesson will be lost if we do so, as the focus here is to realise that this same verbs functions in different ways and you can use two different forms of it to say the same thing, with an extra structure that gives an extra nuance.

Nevertheless, this sort of suggestion about content is very useful and it's talked through with the team. Thanks for writing to us and give us your thoughts. 

Un saludo cordial

Thanks, Inma.  Yes, I do see the point of focusing on the different functions of the verb and perhaps the best way to work through it is to spend a bit more time on it.  Thanks for your comments.
