Ella se mudó allí hace dos meses. Is this correct? The lesson says we can't use the preterite with hace + time.
this sentence is correct:
"Ella se mudó allí hace dos meses."
What we are saying at the end of the lesson is that you cannot use the Perfect tense (not the simple past tense = sometimes called the Preterite) with "hace ..... que ....", which is a different structure. So, for this same sentence you would say:
Ella se mudó hace dos meses. (correct)
She moved there 2 months ago.
Hace dos meses que ella se vive allí. (correct)
She has lived there for 2 months.
Hace dos meses que ella se mudó allí. (correct)
There is a lesson explaining the use of "hace + length of time" (without que)
