  • anonymous
well, i just started spanish 2 :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
i get really confused when i am conjugating and stuff. :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay. Yeah, just simple Spanish. I think that by Spanish 2, you'd know how to translate sentence #2.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah i do :) is it this?? 2) El tiene veintiseis anos. is that right? :) i think i spelled 26 right?? idk did i ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah, that's right. Good job.
anonymous
  • anonymous
thanks!! :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
So, was your assignment to write 10 sentences about Rafael Nadal?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, it's about somebody i choose... and i chose rafael nadal :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay 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."
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay :) i see :) thanks!! :D and we got #2 already :) so #3.. hmm lemme try this :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Have you learned the imperfect tense, in Spanish? You'd need it for #3.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, but only shortly... :/ I'm not too good at it :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
is this it for #3? 3) Fue numero uno en el mundo. ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
idk is that right? :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well, 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."
anonymous
  • anonymous
Here's ser in the imperfect: (Yo) Era (Tu) Eras (El/Ella/Usted) Era (Nosotros) Eramos (Ellos/Ellas/Ustedes) Eran
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh okay :) that'll work!! :D so what do i write for 3 then?? :/ idk :(
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay. Do you know how to say.... "He was the best player in the world?"
anonymous
  • anonymous
umm 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??
anonymous
  • anonymous
cuz he was ranked #1 in the world before :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah, 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."
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay so this is it then for 3? 3) Fue numero uno del mundo. ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Era.
anonymous
  • anonymous
era?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You 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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
We use the imperfect whenever we talk about something that was consistent, and on-going.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhh okay haha :P so 3) Era el numero uno del mundo. ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah.
anonymous
  • anonymous
awesome!! :D so 4 now!! is this 4? 4) Es considerado uno de los mejores jugadores de tenis. ??? idk tho :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
Instead of "es considera," you can say "Él se considera."
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay so 4) El se considera uno de los mejores jugadores de tenis. ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm looking at #5. Have you learned about the verb "preferir"?
anonymous
  • anonymous
kk :) and 5 now?? is this it?? 5) El juego mejor en arcilla. ?? idk :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
preferir? ;/
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah. It means "to prefer." Like "yo prefiero jugar en una pista de tenis de arcilla."
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yo prefiero. Tu prefieres. El prefiere. Sound familiar at all?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhh yeah i think i have... sounds familiar... i don't think we did it in depth tho :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay. 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
If he plays best on a clay tennis court, then we can say that "he prefers to play on a clay tennis court," you know?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhh okay, so i would say he prefers to play on clay. ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh wait haha urs is better... so we'll use that one then?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah, more specifically, that "he prefers to play on a clay tennis court."
anonymous
  • anonymous
Él prefiere jugar sobre una pista de tenis de arcilla. Have you learned about the word "sobre"?
anonymous
  • anonymous
kk :) 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sobre just means "on," like "on top of" and it can also mean "about."
anonymous
  • anonymous
You can say "cancha de tenis." That's another way of saying it. And it's fine. But instead of "en," remember to say "sobre."
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhh okay so 5) El prefiere jugar sobre cancha de tenis de arcilla. is that right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Good job.
anonymous
  • anonymous
For #4 don't put el se considera. Write el es considerado..
anonymous
  • anonymous
Why wouldn't we write se considera?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Se considera si but not el se considera because if you write el se considera you are saying he considers himself..
anonymous
  • anonymous
yay!! :) and so for 4 i write el se?? or el es?? and is it consideradO? or consideradA? consideradO? right?? cuz he's a guy? :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
El es considerado uno de los mejores jugadores de tennis de todos los tiempos
anonymous
  • anonymous
I put de todos los tiempos cuz that basically means "ever" the way it's used in the sentence
anonymous
  • anonymous
considerado is a past participle, so it always ends with an O.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 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. ????
anonymous
  • anonymous
It 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thats right
anonymous
  • anonymous
kk 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes. Considerado.
anonymous
  • anonymous
kk :) so we are on 6 now right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay. So you know how to say "he is the best tennis player ever."
anonymous
  • anonymous
Could 6 be this?/ 6) El es el mejor jugador de tenis nunca de arcilla. ???
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't think that's how we'd say it. lol. Do you remember what malutella said?
anonymous
  • anonymous
About how to say... "he is considered one of the best tennis players of all time"?
anonymous
  • anonymous
El es considerado ?? so 6) El es considerado mejor jugador de tenis nunca de arcilla. ??idk :/ is that even close?? haha
anonymous
  • anonymous
Malutella said... "Él es considerado uno de los mejores jugadores de tenis de todos los tiempos." @malutella ¿Eres un hablante nativo?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You 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."
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhh 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes. 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."
anonymous
  • anonymous
hahaa 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. ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah.
anonymous
  • anonymous
And since we know how to say that, do you wanna try #7?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Siii hablante nativa
anonymous
  • anonymous
kk :) one sec... :/ lets see if i can do it haha :P and did u say,... i speak native?? lol idk :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah, haha I said I was a native speaker
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh oaky haha :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Female, I'm sorry, I should have known. I didn't look closer at your pic.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay. @iheartfood You wanna try your hand at #7?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Don't worry ;)
anonymous
  • anonymous
(Remember that in Spanish, it's "tenis," with only one N.)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah haha sorry!! is it this?? 7) Rafael Nadal es uno de los mejores atletas de Espana. idk is that even close??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah. You can say that. That's saying "he is one of the best athletes of Spain."
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh cuz u wrote nativo (masculine) but she's a girl so nativa (feminine) is that right? haha :P and yeah one n :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
so thats right??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Mmm hm that's right. El hablante and la hablante.
anonymous
  • anonymous
but 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Would it? Okay. That's great.
anonymous
  • anonymous
You know what, that makes sense, even in English.
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait 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??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes. 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
kk :) 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Why 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okeydokey :) ill post back here with what i think for 8-10 :) is that alright then? :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah that's fine.
anonymous
  • anonymous
and for 10, if not, then we can simplify it right? :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
We can simplify it, if you haven't learned the present-perfect tense yet.
anonymous
  • anonymous
kk :) i don't think i have... :/ but yeah i gotta go now!!! so ill come back later tonight or tomorrow with my translations :) hopefully tonight tho!! :D thanks !! see ya later!! or hasta luego!! (i think!! hahaa)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay. Byebye.
anonymous
  • anonymous

idk do my 8 and 9 look right?? or should 8 be this?? 8) El es muy generoso y amable. ???
anonymous
  • anonymous
Noo #8 should be el es una persona muy generosa y amable
anonymous
  • anonymous
or simply El es muy generoso y amable
anonymous
  • anonymous
For #9 : Rafael Nadal es muy conocido en España.
anonymous
  • anonymous
For #10: Le ha hecho saber al mundo que su lugar favorito es España.
anonymous
  • anonymous
@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 present-perfect tense. Since you're in Spanish 2, and you haven't learned the present-perfect 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 present-perfect (which you haven't learned yet).
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay 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? ^^
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's all perfect.
anonymous
  • anonymous
awesome!! even #10??? :O
anonymous
  • anonymous
is #10 right as well?? :O
anonymous
  • anonymous
No #10 is a little wrong u have to say El le dice al mundo que su lugar favorito es España
anonymous
  • anonymous
Just add le and it's right (:
anonymous
  • anonymous
But Le ha hecho saber al mundo que su lugar favorito es España...like i wrote earlier sounds much better!
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 10 is like this? 10) El le dice al mundo que su lugar favorito es Espana. oh and yeah, but i haven't learned that yet... I'm in spanish 2 :P
anonymous
  • anonymous
so im not too familiar with that :P
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ohh ok soo that's fine (:

okay!! thanks!! :D
