Very good. what about Hace?
Lo siento. I’m afraid I don’t understand your question!
Very nice! Helped me a lot with my homework. Also could you possibly teach me what green screening technique you used to do this? I see a small green outline so, yea. Thanks!
Not sure what ‘technique’ you’re referring to. If you mean how do I get the green screen to work, I’ll be making a video to show you how I make my videos coming soon in a few weeks!
I made my bed = Yo hize la cama? I thought it’s Yo hize mi cama
I’m sorry, it should be Yo hizo la cama & Yo hizo mi cama
I double checked with native Speakers and as I suspected, both are correct.
If you say â€˜Yo hice la camaâ€™ itâ€™s understood whose you made.
If you want to make sure people understand (or emphasize the fact that you performed the action) you can add the â€˜miâ€™ or â€˜tuâ€™ or â€™suâ€™, etc.
Hope that made sense! Thanks for your question 🙂
Gracias para los leciones (sp?). These verbs are getting pretty tough to remember. Anyway, I noticed the cheat sheets below the video weren’t changed from the previous ‘hacer’ page. Thought you should know.
These lessons are great!!! And you are so clear and enthusiastic – muchas gracias 🙂
Â¡Gracias! I’m a fan of your lessons. You make it seem simple (less daunting) when it’s so complicated!
I’m determined to master the preterite. 😉
How do you know whether to use ‘su’ or ‘sus’ for his, her, their? Is there a video on this?
Also, when translating ‘I made my bed’, how come it is simply, “yo hice la cama’ and not “yo hice mi cama”.
Â¡Gracias! I have a test tomarrow in Spanish 2 and this helped alot! It’s not so complicated anymore. 🙂
Can you include the vosotros/as form in the practice during the video? Thank you and I look forward to your next video.
