Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it’s time for a quick cultural insight.
Laura: Use these phrases to ask when someone is leaving Mexico. But be aware that in different situations such as social gatherings, if you ask this question, the person might think that you want him or her to leave soon.
Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Laura: Hasta pronto.

Hola Alvina,


Thank you for your questions.

Yes, it depends on how you want to do the question.

You can also say "adonde vas?" without the "te" or "adonde te vas?" both are correct.

But take into consideration the shorter would only be used in a very casual situation.

Sigamos practicando!

How come you use "te" or "se" when asking when someone is leaving, but you don't need to use it for "qué haces"? Doesn't "vas" imply that the pronoun is you?

I agree with the previous person's comment. Under download PDFs, there are only 2 PDFs, one for each version of the lesson checklists. The normal PDFs for the Lesson Notes and the Lesson Transcript are missing. Instead these items are listed as audios. Why would I want an audio of the Lesson Transcript. Transcripts should be PDFs.


If you click on the audio of the Lesson Notes or Lesson Transcript, you get nothing.


Also, under other lessons are listed three numbered items: 1. Introduction; 2. Lesson Materials; and 3. Review. These are also missing from this lesson.


I have tried a couple of browsers and they both have the same problems with this lesson only.
