 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Spanish 2 :) just simple spanish? :D
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
well, i just started spanish 2 :)
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i get really confused when i am conjugating and stuff. :/
 one year ago

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

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

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Yeah, that's right. Good job.

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

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

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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."
 one year ago

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

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

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes, but only shortly... :/ I'm not too good at it :/
 one year ago

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

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
idk is that right? :/
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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."
 one year ago

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

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

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Okay. Do you know how to say.... "He was the best player in the world?"
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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??
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
cuz he was ranked #1 in the world before :)
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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."
 one year ago

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

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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?
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
We use the imperfect whenever we talk about something that was consistent, and ongoing.
 one year ago

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

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

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Instead of "es considera," you can say "Él se considera."
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay so 4) El se considera uno de los mejores jugadores de tenis. ??
 one year ago

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

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

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Yeah. It means "to prefer." Like "yo prefiero jugar en una pista de tenis de arcilla."
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Yo prefiero. Tu prefieres. El prefiere. Sound familiar at all?
 one year ago

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

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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.
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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?
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ohhh okay, so i would say he prefers to play on clay. ??
 one year ago

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

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Yeah, more specifically, that "he prefers to play on a clay tennis court."
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Él prefiere jugar sobre una pista de tenis de arcilla. Have you learned about the word "sobre"?
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Sobre just means "on," like "on top of" and it can also mean "about."
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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."
 one year ago

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

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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.
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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
 one year ago

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

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Why wouldn't we write se considera?
 one year ago

malutellaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Se considera si but not el se considera because if you write el se considera you are saying he considers himself..
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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? :/
 one year ago

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

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

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
considerado is a past participle, so it always ends with an O.
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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. ????
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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.
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
kk :) so we are on 6 now right?
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Okay. So you know how to say "he is the best tennis player ever."
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Could 6 be this?/ 6) El es el mejor jugador de tenis nunca de arcilla. ???
 one year ago

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

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

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

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

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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."
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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."
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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. ??

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Mmm hm that's right. El hablante and la hablante.
 one year ago

malutellaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Would it? Okay. That's great.
 one year ago

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

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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??
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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.

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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.

For #10: Le ha hecho saber al mundo que su lugar favorito es España.
 one year ago

InYourHeadBest 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).

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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? ^^
