Hello, excuse me, could you tell me if this traslation is correct? I listened to on the radio. “A better level of English will allow you to be up to your job and go that be further” (un mejor nivel de inglés te permitirá estar a la altura de tu trabajo y poder ir màs allá). Thanks! 21. October 2016

The last part is not grammatically possible. I am quite sure that you heard:

“…go that BIT further.”

I like your question, because it shows two important aspects of pronunciation – the long and short ‘i’ / ‘ee’, and the dropped ‘T’ at the end of many words.

I recommend you to have a look at this pronunciation lesson:

HI I TOOK THE LEVEL EXAM AND MY RESULTS IS B2 IS IT GOOD FOR ME? from FANNY VASQUEZ 27. September 2016

The Level Test is approximate, but it suggests that you are good enough to take (with preparation) a B2 exam such as the First Certificate from Cambridge.

B2 is Upper-Intermediate, but of course you may have different levels in the different skills: Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening and Use of English. For more information of what you need to know, visit this page:

Hola Diana:

Una cosa es ayudar, pero traducir todo….como costumbre prefiero corregir, porque la idea de la página es que todos aprenden, y eso no lo vas a hacer si te traduzco todo.

Sin embargo, me pillas en buen humor, pero no te acostumbres!

My name is Diana….I’m sixteen years old. I’m studying in CBTIS…. I’m in the third term in the preparation of food and drinks. One of my main aims is to finish school with a high average so I can get into the faculty of Law at university because I want to graduate and get a degree. When I finish my degree I’m going to get a job because I’m going to buy a house and a car and then I’m going to travel to Canada, Paris, California and New York because I want to discover these places and then I’m going to get married and have two children.

(¡Tienes las ideas muy claras! Pero di tambien que quieres aprender Inglés!)

 


te an e-mail to a friend whois going to visit to your country, give advice about what He or She should and shouldn´t do while visiting. Give advice regarding the following aspects: Greeting/Saying hello Giving gifts Eating Clothes Other aspects Note: Use should or shouldn´t esa tarea no la entiendo 24. September 2016

‘Should’ significa ‘debería’ y ‘Shouldn’t’ ‘no debería’. Es muy sencillo.

Entonces puedes escribir frases tal como:

– If you come to my country you should take t-shirts and shorts, because the weather is very hot in summer.

(No puedo escribir mucho porque no sé cual es tu país y no sé que consejos dar, pero para que tengas la idea….)

You shouldn’t kiss in public.

If somebody invites you to their house, you should give them some flowers or chocolates.

People shouldn’t talk about politics.

Everybody should visit the capital city.

etc. etc….

infinitivo and gerund 2. September 2016

This is a very difficult topic for all learners!

I’ll pass you to the article I’ve written on this subject: http://profesornativogratis.com/gerunds-and-infinitives/


por ej si quiero decir en presente simple que “el nunca conduce su vehículo el viernes”, el verbo drive llevaría la s? 24. August 2016

Si, lleva ‘…s’. Entiendo tu confusión, porque has oido que el ‘s’ se lleva en frases afirmativas, pero no negativas.

Es verdad, pero se refiere a ‘doesn’t’. Vemos las frases:

He drivea car.

He doeSn’t drive a car.

Hay ‘s’ en las 2 frases. Y con nunca tambien tiene que haber:

He never driveS a car.

 


Haces tareas? 19. August 2016

Quieres decir deberes?

No exactamente. Mi tarea aquí es ayudaros entender cuando sentís que necesitais ayuda. Claro, si todo el mundo me manda sus deberes no tendría mas tiempo para hacer nada! 🙂

Para los que necesiten que les corrija un texto largo (un papel academico, un proyecto) o que tienen algo especifico en mente, en los proximos meses voy a abrir un servicio de correción. Eso sí, no gratis.

Hola, me podrías corregir? es urgente! Ice skating is the act of moving on ice by using ice skates. Ice skating occurs both on specially prepared ice surfaces (tracks, parks), both indoors and outdoors, as well as on naturally occurring bodies of frozen water, such as ponds, lakes and rivers. The sport brought to North America from Europe in the 1740s. The earliest ice skating happened in southern Finland more than 3,000 years ago. Originally, skates were made by flattened bone strapped to the bottom of the foot. Skaters did not actually skate on the ice, but rather glided on top of it. True skating emerged when a steel blade with sharpened edges was used. Skates now cut into the ice instead of gliding on top of it. These ice skates were made of steel, with sharpened edges on the bottom to aid movement. The construction of modern ice skates has stayed largely the same since then. The first organized skating club was the Edinburgh Skating Club, formed in the 1740s. For admission to the club, candidates had to pass a skating test where they perform a complete circle on either foot, and then jump over first one hat, then two and three, placed over each other on the ice. On the Continent, participation in ice skating was limited to members of the upper classes. As the technology for the maintenance of natural ice did not existed, these early rinks used a substitute consisting of a mixture of hog’s lard and various salts. MUCHAS GRACIASS from Alma 11.

Ice skating is the act of moving on ice by using ice skates. Ice skating occurs both on specially prepared ice surfaces (tracks, parks), both indoors and outdoors, as well as on naturally occurring bodies of frozen water, such as ponds, lakes and rivers. The sport WAS brought to North America from Europe in the 1740s. The earliest ice skating happened (prefiero: TOOK PLACE) in southern Finland more than 3,000 years ago. Originally, skates were made by flattened bone strapped to the bottom of the foot. Skaters did not actually skate on the ice, but rather glided on top of it. True skating emerged when a steel blade with sharpened edges was used. Skates now cut into the ice instead of gliding on top of it. These ice skates were made of steel, with sharpened edges on the bottom to aid movement. The construction of modern ice skates has stayed largely (mejor: LARGELY REMAINED) the same since then. The first organized skating club was the Edinburgh Skating Club, formed in the 1740s. For admission (TO BE ADMITTED INTO) to the club, candidates had to pass a skating test where they USED TO perform a complete circle on either foot, and then jump over first one hat, then two and three, placed over each other on the ice.

SUERTE, Y ESPERO QUE TE HAYA LLEGADO A TIEMPO!


hola me gustaria saber si esta estrofa de cancion esta bien escrita …..under your love and where are you I saw arrive health that yearns….gracias 21. July 2016

“under your love and where you ARE (no es pregunta) I saw arrive health that yearns”

No sería normal en Inglés conversacional, porque el sujeto (health) tendria que estar antes del verbo (arrive). Eso dicho, en las canciones hay mas flexibilidad y esto valdría.

Es una frase curiosa, no?


Hello, good morning. I’m a Spanish girl, I need to Know the difference between “what a” and “what”, and “how” and ” how a”. The only thing that I Know about this, it’ s used with contable and uncontable nouns. Do you use in another context? Thanks in advance. 3. July 2016

Do you mean as an exclamation?

What a concert! = Singular Noun
What noise! = Plural/Uncountable Nouns (This is not very common)
How silly! = Adjective
How a …… = You have to give me a specific example. I can’t think of anything.


Good evening ! I would like to know the difference in meaning for the next 3 sentences : A) If you happen to be in our area, drop in and see us B) If you should be in our area, drop in and see us C ) If you should happen to be in our area, drop in and see us. Is any of them more formal than the others? Thanks a lot ! 25. June 2016

B is not at all common, and in fact sounds a bit strange.

A and C are both quite common, but I wouldn’t say that the structure is particulary formal – you could hear it in a conversation between friends, for example.
