Hola Randy,


Thank you for your comment.

You can say, "tiene cambio de esto (and you show the money)" en vez de "tiene cambio de ..."

Though is more informal then the second.

Sigamos practicando.


Saludos,

Carla

Pro que decimos "tiene cambio esto..." en vez de "tienes cambio..."? Why do we say "does he/she/it have change.." instead of "do you have change..."?

Hola Trisha,


Thank you for your comment!

"Esto" is a demonstrative pronoun,but it is only used to refer to neuter, unknown or abstract concepts. (e.g. when there is no specific noun acting as its antecedent so that you would know the gender of the noun).

Esto is used for neither a masculine (รฉste) nor feminine (รฉsta) noun.

"Este" can be either a demonstrative pronoun (this one or this masculine thing) or demonstrative adjective (this masculine noun). Its antecendent or the noun that it modifies, if an adjective, must be masculine.


Saludos,

Carla

Will you explain to me when "este" and "esto" are used? From what I can tell, "este" is used before a masculine, singular noun, whereas "esto" is used to substitute "este (masculine, singular noun)," is that right?

Are there any other differences? Thanks!

Hi Gregory,

Thanks for pointing out the lesson numbering issue. Survival Phrases Lesson #21 was accidentally published under the wrong category :oops: The issue is now fixed and the numbering should be in order. :smile:

The Lesson List numbering has gone a little screwy. This is lesson 22, but I accessed it in the Lesson List by clicking the link for Lesson 21. Every Lesson List link after that is also off by one. The page (mp3's and pdf's etc) for Lesson 21 seems to be lost somewhere in the system. Just FYI.


Loving the lessons, BTW...keep up the great work!
