Hola Lynn,


Creo que a nadie le gusta los examenes. 😄

Depending on the context we can use "lo odio" and mean "I hate this".

Literally is should be "Odio esto" is "I hate this".

Sigamos practicando!

Why is "lo odio" translated as "I hate this" rather than "I hate it"? Wouldn't "I hate this" be "Odio esto?"


No me gustan exámenes.

would like to learn the numbers, as the most basic and useful words are numbers. for example, get on a bus, ask the driver how much is the ticket. also in a market, ask how much is for a kilo ...
