        • Hello Janice. I just finished replying your message on YouTube. It’s easier for me to read and reply those on a daily basis. Let me paste here what I just replied:

          Hello Janice. This time I did find your questions 🙂 I will try to answer them all. However, I couldn’t find your Spanish quiz Nbr. 8 by your email address. The last I can see is the 3rd one, which you submitted on the 27th of May. So I guess you were not logged into the website when you did the 8th one.

          Here are my answers to your questions:

          6) No interpretation needed. Just translate “Where are the people?” into Spanish. The answer was “¿Dónde están las personas?”. You wrote “dónde estás las personas”. The verb is conjugated in the 2nd person of the singular, and you are speaking of “las personas” (3rd person plural). That’s why it’s wrong.

          9) “is itching” is conjugated in Present Continuous. The Present Continuous in English is formed by the verb TO BE in Simple Present + the gerund of the verb we want to conjugate. In class I taught that in Spanish it is formed using the verb ESTAR in Simple Present + the gerund of the verb we want to conjugate. And the gerunds in Spanish end with ANDO or ENDO, depending on the type of verb. Thus: is itching = está picando.

          12) I will scratch with my nails = (Yo) voy a rascar con mis.
          I will scratch it with my nails = (Yo) voy a rascármela con las uñas = Me la rascaré con las uñas = Me la voy a rascar con las uñas = Voy a rascármela con las uñas.

          As you can see, you missed the “it” that refers to what you are scratching. Also, you are using the possessive “mi” in singular to refer to “uñas” (plural). And as a very minor detail: Keep in mind there are 2 ways of speaking in the future in Spanish and in English (“I will” Vs. “I am going to”). Both are identical grammatically. But I recommend using “rascaré” for “I will scratch” and “voy a rascar” for “I am going to scratch”.

          13) Your sentence has 2 conflicting verbs: ESTAR and NADAR. ESTAR is a verb on its own right. And you only use it as an auxiliary verb in the Continuous tenses. But here we are speaking in the Simple Past. Therefore we don’t use the verb estar to say that we swam. Your sentence is the equivalent to saying “Yesterday I was swam very little”.

          17) “ESTÁ” is verb ESTAR in Simple Present for the 3rd person of the singular. However, it should be in the infinitive. This is exactly the same as in English. Take a look:

          – I will be with them (the verb TO BE is in the infinitive).

          The correct sentence would be “Voy a estar con ellos”. Like this the sentence would be correct. However, I still prefer you to use the same type of future I used in the original English sentence. Like what I explained at the end of the previous answer.

          11) You are confusing the word “yo” (I) with “ya” (already) / ya no (anymore). Your answer would have been correct if you had written “ya” instead of “yo”.

          Once your test is corrected you can find all the correct answers below your own. Pay attention to these and to any further explanation that may show, because it’s very helpful to understand the exercise better.

          I’m very glad to see that you are already taking the quizzes, because this will help you a lot to discover so many mistakes that we never realize we would make until we are confronted with the need of using what we have learned. Don’t feel back if you were expecting to do better, because I created the quizzes difficult on purpose. The purpose is not to evaluate whether you should pass or repeat the course. It’s designed to have you think as much as possible using what I’ve taught. And I know what to ask and where to make you fail, because I want students to learn from their mistakes and improve each time they take another test.

          Good luck!

  1. I wrote you a long message asking you questions about quiz 8. my message seems to have disappeared. please tell me where i can ask questions

    • Hello Janice. You can ask here or via YouTube. Actually I usually reply YouTube first, so I guess it’s the best option. However, I don’t know which message you are talking about. Could you write it again? Also, I recently underwent eye surgery, and therefore I’m taking a break until I’m recovered. That is why I’m exceptionally taking long to reply 😀
