Post a New Question

Posted by on Saturday, May 16, 2009 at 10:25pm.

Mis hermanos gemelos nacieron en el Hospital de Riverside en Colunbus, Ohio. Uno tiene cabello negro y ojos azules. El otro es rubio con ojos verdes. Nacieron el veintinueve de O de dos mil. Estuve sorprendida y confundida. Pedi vi a los bebés. Vi a los bebes y estaban muy lindos. Estaba esperando en el hospital y alguien me regaló una camisa que decía "Ahora soy la hermana grande." Estaba con mi familia. Tenía seis años de edad.


marzo del dos mil. = O de dos mil ( why this way ??)

Estuve = I got (action when it first hit) OR estaba = I was (description) ( where and why?)

any other suggestions or changes - thanks again

I am going to princeton this summer for the johns hopkins program - thanks for all of your help.

    two comments

    marzo del dos mil. = O de dos mil

    Estuve = I got (action when it first hit) OR estaba = I was (description)

    why the o

    and where does the second one go and is it estuve or estaba

    Colunbus, Ohio = Columbus

    de O de dos mil. ? = del año dos mil

    This is not correct as another one I corrected! What I was trying to tell you is that estar in the Preterit (estuve, etc.) has a special meaning, like "llegar" = to get/to arrive. It is best to NOT use it.

    Estuve sorprendida = Estaba sorprendida, etc.

    Pedi vi = I asked TO SEE; just as in English, you need an infinitive = Pedí ver

    los bebes = this word always needs an accent = los bebés

    O = OR

    Hopefully you have all the corrections now. It gets confusing to read the same paragraph more than once or twice.
