It helped me a lot
there is a mistake on the days of the week sheet. Domingo is not Friday.
Thanks Rebecca. We did not notice. We’ll fix it right away 🙂
Hey alex how are you doing.
Muy bien, ¿Cómo estás tú? 🙂
Alex,what is the singular word for ayudar?
Hola… AYUDAR is a verb so it does not have a singular form. It is a regular verb, so you can conjugate it as “Yo ayudo”, “tú ayudas” and so on. The singular would apply for nouns and adjectives in Spanish, e.g. “casa” -> “casas”. Hope it helps Jeremiah 🙂
On the basic Weather Expressions lesson, there is an error: In general we use three verbs to talk about the weather in Spanish: HABER in its form HAY, ESTAR as ESTÁ and HACER as HAY.
The second HAY should be HACE.
Hello! Thanks for finding that mistake. We just fixed it.
Gracias ¡Que tengas un buen día!
Alex – you use “esta usando” for talking about what someone is wearing. What about llevar, llevar puesto, ponerse, etc.? I feel like different countries use different verbs to talk about what someone is actively wearing at a particular moment. I’m trying to figure out which countries/regions use which phrases.
Hi Jessica. Sorry for the late answer. Yes, I think different countries use different phrases as well. USAR means “to wear” and it would a very basic way to say what you are wearing. I have heard “LLEVAR PUESTO” a lot from Mexican TV shows. Probably, it is more common for them to say “LLEVAR PUESTO”, e.g. “Llevo puesta una chaqueta”, which is the same as “Estoy usando una chaqueta” or “Me puse una chaqueta” (using PONERSE). I could not tell you which countries exactly use which phrases, but I am sure most of them if not all would understand what you mean when you use any of them.
Very happy to come on to your site. We are three years Americans into living in Ecuador. We like the practicality in techniques and thoughtful selection of subjects. Can you tell us something about yourselves, background, motivation for this effort, and if there may be more from you in the future ? Deucy and Deucet
¡Hola! ¡Mucho gusto! Well, we are from Nicaragua. I studied English as a Foreign Language and learned some methodologies for teaching the language. While learning English, I noticed that I preferred sites with recordings and visual resources. Since I’m a Spanish native speaker, I decided to help people learn Spanish instead of English with a site that included all I liked from English learning websites and more. It is really cool to write these kind of lessons with a communicative focus. After all, that is what languages are for… para comunicarnos. We plan to continue with this effort for sure. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy Ecuador 🙂
