Homework Help: Spanish

Posted by Kim on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 at 12:45am.

Im reading spanish-english childrens books to help me w the language bc i like the pictures
Anyway Im really confused bc sometimes "me" is seemingly randomly added on to the infinitive verb and sometimes not so im not sure why. For example..
on page is this: "I can tie my shoes"/"Yo puedo amarrarme los zapatos"
& the page right after: "I can ride my bike"/ "Yo puedo montar en bicicleta."
Why not "montarme"

Also why don't they always translate it exactly. The spanish sentence says I can ride ON the bike, not my (mi) bicicleta. Why don't they have the sentences the same way?? It makes it more confusing. Grr.
