English translation is wrong

Conduces fatal! -¡ ________ el mejor conductor del mundo! -Your driving is awful! -Like you are the best driver in the world! Hola, Conduces is a verb which in English is drive. Maybe change Conduces to “tu conducción” , which goes with fatal, an adjective.  Or can fatal also be an adverb? Gracias, Shirley.

Hola Shirley

"fatal" can also act as an adverb as in "in a very awful way" so we can also use it with the verb conducir. It's the most natural way to express that someone's driving is awful: "Conduce muy mal, conduce fatal".

Saludos
