(I know there are other lessons on this, which I've done, but I'm still confused) - Following on from Melissa's question below and using the same example for clarity;
The relative pronoun 'el/la que' doesn't appear in this lesson,
what would be the difference then, if we said 'El director del colegio, EL QUE trabaja duro, es respetado por todos?'
I've always understood el/la que to mean 'THE ONE who/which', so I would think using 'el que' would imply there are two headteachers, one who works hard and is respected, and one who doesn't.
But in a grammar book I have, it gives the example; 'Esta autora, que/quien/la cual/LA QUE vive en Brasil, va a visitar nuestra ciudad', (This author, WHO lives in Brasil...)
Please help me to understand. Thanks.
