Hola Esteban,


We never use "y" and "i" together, instead we use "e" instead of "y" in this situations.

"e" is a conjunction that replaces "y" when the following word starts with "i" or "hi"

So, we need to fix the sentence anyways. :sweat_smile: Gracias!

Example from vocab section:


Español: Hoy está soleado he iré a dar un paseo.

Inglés "Today it is sunny and I will go for a walk."


Is it supposed to be "y ire" instead of "he ire"? If not, could you explain "he ire" to me?
