Listeners, mastering different tenses is one of the most important aspects of learning a language. Can you try making a past tense sentence in Mexican Spanish?

Sorry about item 1 in the previous comment. I forgot I had already written that in an earlier comment.

A couple of issues with the expanded vocab:


1. In the example below, the actual audio says "escibir email".


La persona utiliza una computadora para escribir un correo electrónico.

"The person is using a computer to write e-mail."


2. In the example below, the English translation should not include the word "large" since "grande" is not in the Spanish version.


El trabajador de la oficina es una parte importante de cualquier compañía.

"The office worker is an important cog in any large company."

From the expanded vocab:


usar : use

La persona utiliza una computadora para escribir un correo electrónico.

"The person is using a computer to write e-mail."


The sentence is not an example of "usar". The verb should be "usa" rather than "utiliza"

The actual audio for this is:


La persona utiliza una computadora para escribir email..

Hola Doug/Kendra,


Thank you for sharing, and helping other students. :sunglasses:

In the case the sentence “Le gustan mucho los cachorros a la niña.” the subject could be omitted when this can be understood from the context.

Also for natural speaking, the subject will always go first.

Hola Kendra,


From an English speakers perspective, gustar is kind of backwards. It's often defined as "to like", but actually it means something closer to "to please" or "to give pleasure". In Spanish, to say what we like, we actually talk about what pleases us, and the subject of the sentence is the thing or action that is pleasing to us.


The sentence “A la niña le gustan mucho los cachorros.” literally means "The puppies are very pleasing to her, the girl." The subject of the sentence is actually "los cachorros", and "la niña" is the indirect object.


If it is already known by context that we are referring to the girl, it could also be written simply as "Le gustan mucho los cachorros." which would translate to "The puppies are very pleasing to her." In this case, the "Le" is the indirect object pronoun that stands in the place of "a la niña".


Since "le" can refer to her, him, or you (formal), if there is no context, clarification may be needed. This is what "A la niña" provides. Note that it can also be written at the end of the sentence, like this: “Le gustan mucho los cachorros a la niña.”
