Using the present with 'casi'.

Using the present with 'casi'.

Hi. I remember learning that when we almost do something in the past, then we use the present tense, so that ¡casi me desmayé!  would be ¡casi me desmayo! 

Is this right or wrong or an acceptable alternative in speaking or writing?


Thanks

Hola Stuart,

yes, you are right, with "casi" we can (and it is quite often) use the present when referring to past events, so I will add this option to the exercise as correct.

Hello there! Could I use  !Nunca me olvidaré de aquella noche! instead of " de esa noche"? Thank you, Polly

Hola Pollyana

Yes, you can use "aquella" too. We will add it to the other possible answers.

Gracias y saludos
