Confusion over Translation

Confusion over Translation

The translation for final sentence in this exercise ("I would like to visit Medellín next year) was confusing for me.

I wrote:   "Querría a visitar a Medellín el próximo año. But "the best answer" was "Quiero visitar Medellín ..."

I find this confusing because I understand "quiero" to translate to I want/would like -- not I would want/I would like.

Please help up clear this confusion.

Hola Pati

The set translation for that sentence wasn't literal, but it's changed now and it's saying "I want to visit Medellín" to avoid confusion. There are other alternatives that are also set as correct, for example using the conditional "Me gustaría visitar..." or "Querría visitar..." which, although, they literally mean "I would like", they are really very close. 

I hope it helps.

Saludos
