Hi there, I notice contar wasn’t in this list? Or is it always the case that an -ar- verb ending in “ontar” will change its stem?
Let's see when you find a good job! -- I think that this could be answered with either form of cuando/cuándo depending on context:
Let's see (at what point in time - cuádo) you find a good job.
Let's see (when (if) you find a good job - cuando)
I chose the latter and was marked wrong.
Your example is:
Could you explain how 'hago' comes to mean 'I am walking.' please. How would one know? Is this an idiomatic usage?
Why is pero used and not sino?
Could "No puedo salir hoy sino saldré mañana." be used or would this be incorrect?
Just a little question off topic.
In the example;
"Espero que hayáis reservado en el restaurante con antelación."
The preposition used is 'en' before el restaurante. In this sense do they mean 'at the restaurant' or 'in the restuarante'. Are there other prepositions you could use with reservar (like 'con') or is 'en' the standard preposition here.
By process of elimination, I selected estuvieron as being the correct answer; however, my preference would have been estaban.
See the example given below:
Mario estaba de camarero en un restaurante.
Mario was working as a waiter in a restaurant.
Here is the question with the answer:
Mis hijos _estuvieron_
de vendedores en una tienda.
My children were working as shop assistants in a store.
Mis hijos _estaban_ de vendedores en una tienda.
Would you explain the reason for the answer being the preterite and not the imperfect, please.
Just to say that this is a great lesson, and goes a long way to making clear something that I have found very difficult.
Thanks a million. John
My score appears to be stuck at 97% on this kwiz. Whenever I take this quiz, 'Gustar en el condicional', my overall score at this level is reduced despite answering the question correctly.
I'd be grateful if you could check the bug on this for me.
Muchas gracias :)
I am not able to see the text. I can only play? How can I see the text to read?
