Example clarification

In the lesson segment discussing use of extra pronouns for emphasis, you show two examples of INCORRECT structure (e.g., "A nosotros gusta el cafe" and "A ellos gustan las manzanas", but do not show the correct structure.  Would the CORRECT forms be "A nosotros nos gusta el cafe", and "A ellos les gustan las manzanas" (?).   Thank you for clarifying.  -Dan

Hola Dan

Thank you for your question regarding the use of extra pronouns for emphasis in Spanish. You are correct in identifying the correct forms. The examples given in the lesson segment demonstrate incorrect structure: "A nosotros gusta el café" should be "A nosotros nos gusta el café", and "A ellos gustan las manzanas" should be "A ellos les gustan las manzanas". Your understanding is spot on. The use of "nos" and "les" aligns with the emphasis needed for these pronouns.

Thank you for pointing this out. I appreciate your attention to detail and hope this clarification helps.

Hasta pronto
