Example sentece in this lesson:

Vosotros anduvisteis por el camino equivocado.You walked on the wrong way. (You plural informal.)

Hello,

It seems to me this is more of a literal translation? 

Does it meant rather: "You went the wrong way."?

Or: "You walked on the wrong side of the road." ?

Thank you for your consideration.

Hola Nicole

In Spanish this sentence could mean both things, the literal translation "to walk on the wrong side of the road/the wrong path/take the wrong street" or the more idiomatic "to choose the wrong path" as when someone takes the wrong decision in life. So in Spanish it could have both meanings although in English it'd be said differently.

Saludos
