InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay. Yeah, just simple Spanish. I think that by Spanish 2, you'd know how to translate sentence #2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah i do :) is it this?? 2) El tiene veintiseis anos. is that right? :) i think i spelled 26 right?? idk did i ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, was your assignment to write 10 sentences about Rafael Nadal?

iheartfood

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, it's about somebody i choose... and i chose rafael nadal :)

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay great. So, I'll translate the first sentence, and I'll show you how to break it down. Rafael Nadal is a profession tennis player from Spain. Rafael Nadal es un jugador profesional de tenis, de España. You see here, "jugador" is "player." "profesional" is "professional." "tenis" is "tennis." "España" is "Spain."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay :) i see :) thanks!! :D and we got #2 already :) so #3.. hmm lemme try this :/

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Have you learned the imperfect tense, in Spanish? You'd need it for #3.

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, but only shortly... :/ I'm not too good at it :/

iheartfood

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is this it for #3? 3) Fue numero uno en el mundo. ??

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk is that right? :/

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well, for one, "fue" is preterite, not imperfect. Since we're trying to say that he USED TO BE the best player in the world, we'd wanna use the imperfect tense of "ser." Here's the problem: Here in America, we say #1 when we mean to say "the best." But I'm not a native Spanish speaker, so I don't know if Spanish speakers also say "#1" to mean "the best." I do think it'd be better to actually say "the best player in the world."

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Here's ser in the imperfect: (Yo) Era (Tu) Eras (El/Ella/Usted) Era (Nosotros) Eramos (Ellos/Ellas/Ustedes) Eran

iheartfood

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh okay :) that'll work!! :D so what do i write for 3 then?? :/ idk :(

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay. Do you know how to say.... "He was the best player in the world?"

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0umm is it this? 3) El era el mejor jugador en el mundo. ?? idk, but i just realized, i mean to say he was ranked #1 in the world... ya know??

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cuz he was ranked #1 in the world before :)

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yeah, you could say that. The only thing that I would personally say different is... instead of "en el mundo," I'd say "del mundo." It literally means "of the world."

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so this is it then for 3? 3) Fue numero uno del mundo. ??

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You can say "Era el numero uno del mundo." I just researched #1, and it seems that Spanish speakers DO say #1, to mean "the best," and such. Yes, era. Remember the imperfect?

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We use the imperfect whenever we talk about something that was consistent, and ongoing.

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh okay haha :P so 3) Era el numero uno del mundo. ??

iheartfood

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0awesome!! :D so 4 now!! is this 4? 4) Es considerado uno de los mejores jugadores de tenis. ??? idk tho :/

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Instead of "es considera," you can say "Él se considera."

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so 4) El se considera uno de los mejores jugadores de tenis. ??

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'm looking at #5. Have you learned about the verb "preferir"?

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kk :) and 5 now?? is this it?? 5) El juego mejor en arcilla. ?? idk :/

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yeah. It means "to prefer." Like "yo prefiero jugar en una pista de tenis de arcilla."

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yo prefiero. Tu prefieres. El prefiere. Sound familiar at all?

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh yeah i think i have... sounds familiar... i don't think we did it in depth tho :/

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay. Well it's actually pretty simple. It means "to prefer." If you've learned it in class, then sentence #5 is actually a good opportunity to use it.

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If he plays best on a clay tennis court, then we can say that "he prefers to play on a clay tennis court," you know?

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh okay, so i would say he prefers to play on clay. ??

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh wait haha urs is better... so we'll use that one then?

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yeah, more specifically, that "he prefers to play on a clay tennis court."

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Él prefiere jugar sobre una pista de tenis de arcilla. Have you learned about the word "sobre"?

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kk :) would it be like this then? 5) El prefiere jugar en una cancha de tenis de arcilla. idk tho... this one is confusing :/ and yes i vaguely remember it... could u pls refresh me? :D

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sobre just means "on," like "on top of" and it can also mean "about."

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You can say "cancha de tenis." That's another way of saying it. And it's fine. But instead of "en," remember to say "sobre."

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh okay so 5) El prefiere jugar sobre cancha de tenis de arcilla. is that right?

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, that's right. UNA cancha And can you see how that sentence is broken down? El  he prefiere  prefers jugar  to play sobre  on una cancha de tenis  a tennis court de arcilla  of clay.

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh okay aweomse!! so i need to add UNA, like this? 5) 5) El prefiere jugar sobre una cancha de tenis de arcilla. ??? and yes i understand :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For #4 don't put el se considera. Write el es considerado..

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Why wouldn't we write se considera?

malutella
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Se considera si but not el se considera because if you write el se considera you are saying he considers himself..

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yay!! :) and so for 4 i write el se?? or el es?? and is it consideradO? or consideradA? consideradO? right?? cuz he's a guy? :/

malutella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0El es considerado uno de los mejores jugadores de tennis de todos los tiempos

malutella
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I put de todos los tiempos cuz that basically means "ever" the way it's used in the sentence

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2considerado is a past participle, so it always ends with an O.

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so instead of this: 4) El se considera uno de los mejores jugadores de tenis. i write this? 4) El es considerado uno de los mejores jugadores de tennis de todos los tiempos. ????

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It DOES mean "he considers himself," but I thought that we could also use "se considera" to mean "is considered." "Es considerado" isn't wrong though, I admit.

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kk so i use this one for 4? 4) El es considerado uno de los mejores jugadores de tennis de todos los tiempos. ?? and its correct?? :D

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kk :) so we are on 6 now right?

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay. So you know how to say "he is the best tennis player ever."

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Could 6 be this?/ 6) El es el mejor jugador de tenis nunca de arcilla. ???

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I don't think that's how we'd say it. lol. Do you remember what malutella said?

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2About how to say... "he is considered one of the best tennis players of all time"?

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0El es considerado ?? so 6) El es considerado mejor jugador de tenis nunca de arcilla. ??idk :/ is that even close?? haha

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Malutella said... "Él es considerado uno de los mejores jugadores de tenis de todos los tiempos." @malutella ¿Eres un hablante nativo?

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You want to say, He is considered one of the best tennis players every, on clay. Yes? So, we already know how to say, "He is considered one of the best tennis players, ever."

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh so i write this then?? 6) El es considerado uno de los mejores jugadores de tennis de todos los tiempos sobre arcilla. ??? and did u say something about like speaking native?? haha :P

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes. I asked if malutella was a native speaker. I had a question. But don't worry. If I were writing it, I'd specifically say "sobre la cancha de arcilla."

iheartfood
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hahaa okay :) so 6 is this then? 6) El es considerado uno de los mejores jugadores de tennis de todos los tiempos sobre la cancha de arcilla. ??

InYourHead

iheartfood

InYourHead

iheartfood

malutella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but u know for #6 it would make more sense to write it like this El es considerado uno de los mejores jugadores de tenis sobre canchas de arcilla de todos los tiempos

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Would it? Okay. That's great.

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You know what, that makes sense, even in English.

iheartfood

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait so we changed 6 again?? to this?? 6) El es considerado uno de los mejores jugadores de tenis sobre canchas de arcilla de todos los tiempos. ?? is that better than what we had originally??

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes. It does sound a bit better. Neater. This way, we have the phrase for "ever" or "of all time," at the END of the sentence.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kk :) i have to go buy some groceries, make dinner and then eat and stuff.... can we finish this later?? :D or could we do it really fast?? the last 3 sentences ?? could we do them in like 10 minutes?? :D

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Why don't you try to do them yourself, bring them back here, and I'll help you with proofreading. I know that #8 and #9 should be pretty easy. But we'll talk about #10. It's not exactly Spanish 2 level. Maybe Spanish 3. But try it anyway. We'll see.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For #9 : Rafael Nadal es muy conocido en España.

malutella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For #10: Le ha hecho saber al mundo que su lugar favorito es España.

InYourHead
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@iheartfood YOUR #8 was correct, all except for that generosA should be generosO. Because Rafael is a male. And adjectives have to agree with the gender of the person. You know? malutella's sentence for #9 is fine. The sentence in #10 uses the presentperfect tense. Since you're in Spanish 2, and you haven't learned the presentperfect tense yet, I think we should stick to sentences that you HAVE already learned how to make. Instead of saying that "he HAS TOLD the world that his favorite place is Spain," you can say, "He TELLS the world that his favorite place is Spain." That way, you only need to use a present tense verb, instead of the presentperfect (which you haven't learned yet).

iheartfood

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay i see so i have this then? 8) El es muy generoso y amable 9) Rafael Nadal es muy conocido en Espana. ????? and what about 10?? :O would this be even close?? 10) El dice al mundo que su lugar favorito es Espana. idk is that close?? and 8 and 9 are right like that? ^^
